Hi Steve and Joly,
Thanks for getting back. This is a child theme built on twentyeleven. The most customized part is the front page. Basically, it allows dozens of writers to post entries, have them appear in different categories on the front page – art, video, essays etc. Everything seems to work fine but video.
I would like to see video displayed full-size in the top left section – and be able to pull out a video from a post the way one pulls out featured images.
One of the problems here is that most of these users will have no computer knowledge, ie no knowledge of markup, custom fields or anything like that. So we have to keep it as simple as possible.
Joly – are you talking about adding a custom field then pulling that up on the front page?
I was wondering if there was a plugin that would allow you to pull out a featured video, the way you pull out featured images.
