The Columnist Theme - Video Header?

  1. Hey guys!
    I'm very much a WordPress newbie at the moment, and am setting up my blog with The Columnist free theme (http://thecolumnist.info/).
    One thing I just can't figure out for the life of me, though, is how to set a video to the "featured image" area of a page. The developer calls this the "hero" area. He explains how to do it here: http://thecolumnist.info/videos/a-video-post/
    But I just can't figure it out. Pasting the embed code from Vimeo places the video in the body of the post, and using the "old" embed code from Vimeo doesn't embed anything at all (though it includes the "object" tag he mentions).

    Any help would be super appreciated! Thanks.

  2. Hi there,
    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG run on different software. Themes with the same names are not identical and do not have all the same features. This is the relevant theme description of the version of the theme we have here at WordPress.COM http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/the-columnist/

  3. Darn, I was slowly coming to that conclusion.
    Thanks!

  4. You're welcome and I'm sorry it wasn't the answer you wanted to hear.
