  1. hi,
    i think thats a total noob question, but i cant find the answer anywhere i searched.
    if i click on my categoties, the page comes up, but it doesn`t display the posted videos.
    how can i change that?

  3. The category pages are using the_excerpt instead of the_content and therefore do not display videos.

    Grab the latest SVN copy from: Thematic - Google Code

    Add the following code to your child theme's functions.php:

    function childtheme_content($content) {
    	if (is_category()) {
    		$content= 'full';}
    	return $content;
    add_filter('thematic_content', 'childtheme_content');

    All category pages will now display the full content instead of the excerpt.

  4. i tried your solution chris, but it is still not working.
    i used the Viper's Video Quicktags plugin to post youtube videos and those are not showing up, but embedded videos do show, so i guess it might be the vipers plugin.

  6. i also just tried a test with the kaltura all in one video plugin, and the same thing appears, just the code but no video.

  7. Mmmh .. don't know at the moment what's happening on your site. It seem's as if you're running the latest SVN copy. Doing the same thing on my site works. Need to sleep about it.

  8. hey chris, it all works with embedded video, but not with any plugins, tried tinymc, fckeditor, and those mentioned above, but no luck.
    i think i just ahve to embedd the videos then via embedd code instead with plugins. hmm that sucks a little.

  9. Don't understand this behavior. I did all my tests with the Viper's Video Quicktags and it works as expected.

    And there's no reason why it shouldn't work on a category page that uses the_content() like the home page.

  10. hi chris,
    i got it running with wordtube on my blog at,
    except for the archives page, see the last posted video in streetart.

    i am happy so far, but i ust tried to setup a wpmu install, cause i figured out that 1 blog doesnt suit my needs, as i have to split for artists and for things i find on the web.
    so same thing again, i am trying to have my videos, cause thats what i am mostly interested in, showing up everywhere, on page, category,archieve,tag and author.

    but right now they are just showing up under category, but not under tags, author or archieve.

    is there a way to turn excert totally off, or is there a plugin or am i just to blind to see the setting.

    i am a little desperate here, as most of my blogging will be videos, but it doesnt really make sense if they dont show up.


    the wpmu setup:
    sry, but still in an early stage, as i dont wanna continue without solving this problem.

  11. Ok .. tested it once again with the current SVN(!!!!) copy of Thematic, the following code in my functions.php and Viper's Video Quicktags:

    function child_content() {
        return 'Full';
    add_filter('thematic_content', 'child_content');

    This will switch to the_content() on all pages of my blog.

    I'm getting the videos on home, category, archive, tags, author .. as I said the videos will show up in any part of my blog.

  12. wow,
    i have no idea, but it is working now,
    i saw that the code changed a little from the first one you gave me.

    in the first one:

    function childtheme_content

    and in the second:

    function child_content

    i guess it was the childtheme, but anyways, its running perfectly now, and i am one step further in building my wpmu.

    thanks so much,
    dankeschoen aus montreal,kanada!
