    You might see how posted videos extend past the side bar slightly. Is there a way to correct this? Thank you.

    It appears as if video posts extend past right margin into widget area. What can be done to fix that? Thank you.

    Good Morning Tim,

    Good question. You might try a plugin like Responsive Video Light (https://wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-video-light/) to keep those from expanding outside the main content area. If you run into trouble there, let me know.

    Have a great week,
    Bill

    huh, I downloaded the plugin, but don’t really see anything about resizing.

    The plugin adds a shortcode that you can use to insert responsive videos into your pages/posts. You’ll need to replace the videos that you’ve inserted with the shortcode to have them be responsive/resize. The description tab for the plugin at https://wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-video-light/ has the shortcodes for you.

    Tim,

    Let’s add this as well:

    1. In your WordPress dashboard click on the Appearance section and choose Theme Options.
    2. From the tabs at the top, choose the Styling one.
    3. Scroll down to the Custom CSS box and add this:
      
      span.embed-youtube iframe {
      	max-width: 100%;
      }
      
    4. Save your changes.

    See if that doesn’t help bring the YouTube videos in line.

    Take care,
    Bill
