I have a problem using Tubepress Widget on more than one page within the same website using WPMU.

The widget is not displayed anymore within admin dashboard after having been used once.
But I need to display a different set of Youtube videos on a second page.

Is this feature possible in your PRO version if I buy it?

The Tubepress supplied widget only can be used once. However, I use a work-around which seems to function fine:

  • Install Custom Post Widget plugin: http://wordpress.org...om-post-widget/
  • Create a Content Block (a special kind of post that this plugin adds to the menu.) Something like this:
    [tubepress mode="tag" tagValue="Spiders from Mars" description="false" theme="youtube" resultsPerPage="2" paginationAbove="true" paginationBelow="false" playerLocation="shadowbox" resultCountCap="40"]
  • Add the Content Block widget to your sidebar and select the Content Block from the widget's settings
  • Rinse and repeat for as many TP widgets as you want

Note that the layout of these widgets won't be exactly like the TP widget, as the TP widget does not follow the Admin Settings Panel rules. However, if you are explicit about the theme, resultsPerPage, pagination, etc..., you will closely replicate the TP widget appearance.
