Heh I totally agree (I’ve been doing web dev for almost 20 yrs) but sadly, when a client wants “full control” over their site, no amount of fancy theme coding will be enough. All you would end up doing would be to create your own version of a page builder, which wouldn’t be as good (presumably) as one you pay for support on :)
Got it – thanks so much for the explanation. One more thing, sorry :)
Now that FV has moved from Colorbox to FancyBox, does that mean there is no more “caption” option underneath the video? The FV demo site shows shortcodes with captions, but I don’t see any text under the video when it plays.
Hi Martin – thanks, I can see that the version on the master branch does autoplay lightbox videos. However, it doesn’t look like the autoplay parameter can be controlled via the shortcode, because
[fvplayer src="http://twigpress.aws.twiginteractive.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Sheet-Metal-Straight-Brake.mp4" splash="http://twigpress.aws.twiginteractive.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/v-design-mobility.jpg" width="800" height="450" autoplay="false" caption="this is a link" lightbox="true;text"]
still autoplays, despite autoplay=”false”.
Is this intentional?
Ah thanks. I don’t have Pro, and we don’t use Vimeo – I just used that directly from your demo site.
I’ve replaced it with local video + splash files; I can see the lightbox pops up now but the video won’t autoplay, even when autoplay=”true” is in the shortcode:
Sorry for the delay Martin, been busy but now I’m trying to resolve this.
I have a fresh install of WP 4.9.8, running default 2017 theme, with only active plugin being latest FV Player (184.108.40.2067)
You can see from the homepage of the test site that the exact shortcode I copied from your example page doens’t work.
Can you explain what I’m doing wrong? To be clear, I’ve been using FVP for years without issue up to v6.6.6 (lightboxes, embedded, custom captions etc.)
Thanks so much for the assist.
Perfect – thanks!
Hi – can you bump the version on the WP repo from 6.5.2 to 6.6? Right now it’s not prompting to update to get the fix for this.
Ah, that’s a shame. Hopefully in your standardization you are going to support this feature? It’s quite often the case that the link text will need to be different from the caption (usually it’s shorter). Seems like the shortcode needs another param “splashImage” or something that would be a checkbox in the UI so that a text lightbox and an image lightbox are independently controlled.
Thanks anyway – it’s a great plugin!
Hi Martin –
The functionality looks great on my test page:
Only thing I see for text link, is that if you edit the shortcode in the visual view, the FV pop up doesn’t like parsing the lightbox args, and so show “NaN Nan”. Probably trying to cast those strings to integers for width/height. Not a killer but I’m sure less technical people might be confused? If you hit ‘update’ it removes the params completely.
