Only a few weeks ago we’ve released VideoBox 2.0, and today we’re releasing a new version with other new great features – VideoBox 2.1.0.
What’s new in 2.1.0?
- Floating Video on Page Scroll
- New options for video embeds from YouTube and Vimeo
- Easier management of the Featured Posts order
Floating Video on Page Scroll
Just like many popular news websites and even Facebook, with VideoBox now you can have the video from the top in single posts to stay in a corner on your choice when users scroll the page. This feature is supported in the new version by YouTube, Vimeo and DailyMotion videos.
Additional options for this feature can be found in the Theme Options page:
Easier Featured Posts Management
Tired of having almost no control on the order of your Featured Posts? With the new version you can see all the Featured Posts on a separate page and change their order by drag & drop. From the same page you remove specific posts to appear in the homepage slideshow.
P.S. This is a new & experimental feature which we’ll add soon in other themes as well.
YouTube & Vimeo Embed Options
The new update brings new options for video player when you embed a video from YouTube or Vimeo.
As can be seen from the screenshot above, for YouTube videos you can now hide easier the Related Videos from the end of a video or during the pause. You can also configure each video individually to autoplay when the page is opened.
Vimeo API offers more control for video player, and in the following screenshot you can see available options for each video:
The new update is available for all existing customers, and you can download it from our Members’ Area.
