Question about YouTube

Postby FireAdmin » Mon Jun 30, 2014 8:21 am

Hi everybody,

im very new about PivotX that i personally find useful for a website im working to, but i have some questions.
First thing i need to implement is a way to insert YouTube video in the entries which can be editable (youtube url and ID)
via entry editor in the admin page.

How can i implement this capability?
Thank you so much in advance
:shock:

First you can show YouTube videos through extension Fancybox.
This is quite easy to add to your text in the editor (then the link will show up in that exact position within the text).
I have an example page on my site that shows the possibilities of this extension
http://www.remark-webdesign.nl/page/fancybox-en/remarkwebdesignen.
The documentation of the extension shows how to exactly code the template tag in the entry text.

Adding fields to the editor can be done through extension Bonusfields.
You have to process those extra fields in the theme templates to get the desired result but then it will always in the same position depending on the entry text.
Quality is in the detail of things............

I can also convert your site to a Wordpress site!

It doesn't work as well as i need.
Imagine this, the site will be managed by few different bloggers, they just need to find a button in the entry editor which can allow them
to insert video in the new article as well, as every other blog works like.
That's it, is there a way to do that?

Thank you so much

That possibility is not there. As development is stopped for PivotX it probably won´t be added too.
You can have a look at the successor of PivotX: http://bolt.cm/
