Video Banners

Description

Instead of a large image at the top of a page, a video can be displayed. Video Banners are stored in the system so that they can easily be selected for use on any page. When a Video Banner is chosen, it will overwrite the Banner Image on the page if one was selected.

Adding and Editing

From the WordPress dashboard, click Video Banners in the left menu to bring up the full listing. To edit an existing entry, click its name in the list; to add a new entry, click Add New at the top of the page. Once a Video Banner is created, you can assign it to a page by editing the page, scrolling down to the More Fields section under the page editor, then selecting the item from the Video Banner drop-down.
