    Good Morning Bill

    I have put a video in the widget section but its too bog for folks to watch on their computer screen. I have tried altering iframe size parameters to no avail?

    How can I make the video image smaller on my front page vie the Widget?

    Thanks!

    Good Morning,

    Hope your Holy Week is off to a great start. Great question too. The videos will always expand to fill the width of the area available to them. So if the browser window is quite wide and not very tall, then you could be missing part of the video.

    The way to change the width of the video would be to alter the size of the area that it is in. By default all home page widgets are full width. There is a plugin I’ve seen called Widgets In Columns (https://wordpress.org/plugins/widgets-in-columns/) that lets you set up columns within a widget area. I haven’t tried it personally, but if it works as advertised, you could use it to make the space for the video widget less than full width. You could then add another widget next to it to fill in the space a bit.

    That’s one way to change that without needing any code.

    Have a great week,
    Bill

    Hi Robert,

    You could always hide your logo as the visitor scrolls. That would make the header just a bit smaller and might keep some of the video from being covered. Add this to the Custom CSS box in the advanced tab of the theme options page to give it a try:

    
    .scroll-background #logo {
    	display: none;
    }
    

    See if that makes a difference for you,
    Bill
