Video Thumbnails Settings

Video Thumbnails makes it easy to automatically display video thumbnails in your template. When you publish a post, this plugin will find the first video embedded and retrieve a thumbnail for you. Thumbnails can be saved to your media library and set as a featured image automatically. There’s even support for custom post types and custom fields!

  1. By default the plugin comes configured by itself, so you don’t need to touch any settings, nice.
  2. After you’ve installed and activated the plugin, you now can use it by default, just create a new post and add a youtube link for example and after you click Publish, the “Video Thumbnail” will be generated automatically.
  3. Add a youtube link: Copy the link from youtube and paste it to WordPress editor, you can change to visual or to Text, up to you:
  4. When you add a video, then you’ll have the featured image at the top and the video below and will looks quite bad in my opinion. If you are with me, there is a nice option to hide the featured image for that post by checking “Hide Featured Image on a single page for this article”.
  5. If you want to do hide the featured image only in the article page for all posts. IF you’ve installed “Vloma WP Options” go to Theme Options > Style Settings > Custom CSS and paste this style:
    .img.attachment-vloma_wp_thumbnail-single-image { display: none !important;}
