I really need to play a video on a featured images page(player is flowplayer). After spending 2 hours I still couldn’t find any way to do it. I would appreciate some help.
Thank you Chris
Now is there any way I can play a flash video in the place of feature image on the top a certain page (not all pages)
you can create a new page template in which you remove the featured image inclusion, then you can just insert your flash video in your post/page. You’d then use this template on the pages you want to have your videos.
To create a page template you can copy one of the template files, rename it to whatever you’d like. If you choose to copy the template-blog.php you’ll find something like
get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index' );.
This means it includes loop-index.php from your includes folder. You can also copy these and rename them too.
Lets say I copy the page.php template and call it newpage.php – I’d go in my includes folder and find loop-page.php and copy this too, I’d name it loop-newpage.php. In that last file you can then remove the image inclusion – I believe you can do this by simply removing
//call the function that displays featured images and slideshows within posts
Thanks a lot Chris,
Your explanation cleared a lot of things. However, I was unable to place any flash in the place of slideshow so I duplicated header.php, renamed it header_new.php and modified it instead cause that’s the part where the slideshow code really is. I was wondering if there was a more elegant solution.
Anyways thanks a lot again
