If you are having problems trying to display an embedded video(s) in your posts like me, then this might help you out. I usually embed videos from Hulu, Vimeo and YouTube mostly. But it’s been a problem trying to have the latter 2 display in fullscreen mode.
For Vimeo, the fullscreen icon/grpahic displays on the overlay of the video. But pressing on it, just pauses the video and nothing else. For YouTube, there was no fullscreen icon/graphic in the first place. I think that might have been caused by some code changes on YouTube’s end.
Meanwhile, it seems that the author of Video Embedder, Kristoffer Forsgren, hasn’t been able to update the plugin since 2009. So for those like me who still finds good use for the plugin, it was a let down not finding any new comments/updates since August of 2009.
After taking a look at some search results and at Matt Martz’ article, Separating Pings from Comments in WordPress 2.7, I still had some issues with particularly the comment count. There were also a problem with how the functions I have added/modified are being carried across in my templates (but probably are mostly in the scope of this Blueprint theme). The files that we’re mostly going to deal with are these ones: comments.php, functions.php and single.php.
Anyways, I just want to note here how I took care of them and what I ended up with.
Searching for WordPress Plugins seems to not be very helpful. The results that comes up on the page ain’t helping out. Although, there’s a “you may also try your search at Google” link below the results page—it should be easier to find the right ones.
Hmmm… will see if I have time to create maybe a boormarklet. Unless there’s one already… anyone? For the time being, bookmarking or copy-and-pasting the following would be best and make things efficient:
