Video blog is not working

I’ve tried all the usual methods to post a video on my Talon theme blog page. I’ve copied and pasted the URL in the post, copied the embed code and pasted in the post, tried the insert from URL option in the admin panel. None of the methods worked. In all cases, the video did not post to the blog page.

I installed the 2017 theme and the post worked, which leads me to the following questions:

Does Talon have video blog capabilities?

if Talon does not have built in video blog capabilities, is there a WP plugin to overcome this issue?

Hi,

Do you mean on your blog index? Like here for example: http://demo.athemes.com/talon/blog/ ?
It won’t show because the theme is showing excerpts which strips all formatting, including videos. I assume 2017 shows the full content.

One of these two plugins should help:


Thank you Vlad! My video blogs posts are now showing on my blog page. I’m using https://wordpress.org/plugins/video-thumbnails/ add-on per your recommendation. Thanks again!

I am still learning WP, so I really appreciate the help from the experienced folks. I shall return the favor one day! Another question please.

My video posts to my blog page looks great: http://drholliekelly.com/blog

However, when I click on the video thumbnail to play the video I get an error:

"Oops! That page can’t be found.
It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try one of the links below or a search?"

I’m obviously still doing something wrong!

Apparently it doesn’t work if you click on the post title either. Did it happen before you activated the plugin?
Try going to Settings > Permalinks and click on Save. If that doesn’t work then try deactivating the video plugin and see if the post titles work.

The problem has been resolved. Permalinks “custom structure” setting was the problem. Custom Structure wasn’t allowing the accurate YouTube URL.
