Popup in sidebar

  1. Hey guys. I want to add a youtube video into my sidebar but it comes out way too small. How can i make it pop up in a preferably lightbox'ish way?
    Is there a widget for this?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

  2. bump :)

  3. Bumping after two hours in a peer support forum is bad Karma

  4. We cannot use any pop-ups or lightboxes.
    Look here to determine the Sidebar width for your theme http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/sidebar-width/
    Look here to find the guide for posting youtube videos > http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/
    Resizing youtubes. See the instructions here please > http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/#additional-options

  5. P.S. I'm with auxclass on this.In the future please search the forum and support documentation her http://en.support.wordpress.com for your own answer, and wait patiently for others to answer questions you cannot find answers for. Bumping your own thread after only 2 hours time is very poor form. It's normal for 12 - 24 hours to pass before one gets a first response on any blogging support forum, though we Volunteers do much better than that here. Please be patient.

  6. And it has been 22 minutes since you gave them the answer and the impatient ingrate has not checked back and said thanks -

  7. We still don't have a link to the blog in question. There is no blog linked to the username and aitanor did not provide it. For all we know aitanor could have a wordpress.org install and could be posting to the wrong support forum.

  8. Good point - missed the missing link - a three hour old account - probably a .ORG person that did not read the stickies at the top -

  9. Im sorry guys :)
    I got it working with the WP video lightbox plugin, so its definitely possible ^^

    greetings

  10. Right! It's definiely possible on only WordPress.org installs. It's not possible on free hosted WordPress.com blogs as there is no FTP access and we cannot install any plugins at all. So you are posting to the wrong support forum and ought to post to http://wordpress.org/support/ Please read this so you don't wate your time or ours by posting here about a wordpress.org install in the future > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
    Best wishes with your site.
