Hi there

I've just upgraded to version 4.1.8 and having some difficulty getting things to work as they did previously.

In particular on the front page of our website www.traveldaily.com.au we want to display just the most recently favorited video of our youtube channel - without any thumbnails below it. Currently I'm doing it using the following:

print TubePressPro::getHtmlForShortcode('mode="favorites" favoritesValue="traveldaily" resultCountCap="1" orderBy="newest" playerLocation="normal" embeddedWidth="442" embeddedHeight="284" descriptionLimit="0" description="false" title="false" autoplay="false"');

 

I've tried doing it with resultCountCap="0" but that doesn't work.

Any ideas? Esssentially I want it to work like [tubepress video="XXXX"] to display just a single video, but have it automatically select the most recently favourited video.

Hello,

 

You'll need to create your own theme and then reference that theme via shortcode.

 

Thanks!

Thanks Brandon. I have successfully created a theme called "NoThumbnails" and in the theme.css file included the line 

div.tubepress-thumb img {
    display:none;
 
However I only want to display it like this on the front page of the website. How can I select a particular theme via shortcode? I used to be able to do this using the theme="XXXX" shortcode but this doesn't appear to work any more. Basically what I want to do is have the default theme for most of the site, but just in a couple of instances display the most recently favorited video without a thumbnail.
 
Thanks for your help.

the shortcode option theme="custom/theme-name" should work for you. Let us know if not.

 

Thanks!

Hi Brandon

Sorry, have tried theme="td/nothumbnails" which is the theme name in my custom theme, as well as theme="NoThumbnails" which is the theme title. Neither seem to make any difference. However if I change the overall theme to the NoThumbnails theme this makes the change but on every page, not just on the page where I need it.

Appreciate any thoughts as to how this can be fixed.

Bruce,

 

Since it works when you set it within the GUI options, why not set it there and then use the shortcode to set the theme's on your other pages using the shortcode?

 

Another option would be to open a ticket from the link within my signature with access details and we can take a closer to see what exactly is going on.

 

Thanks!
