Video Thumbnails Wordpress Plugin download

  1. Upload the /video-thumbnails/ directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Some functions are available to advanced users who want to customize their theme:

  • <?php video_thumbnail(); ?> will echo a thumbnail URL or the default image located at wp-content/plugins/video-thumbnails/default.jpg if a thumbnail cannot be found. Here is an example: <img src="<?php video_thumbnail(); ?>" width="300" />
  • <?php $video_thumbnail = get_video_thumbnail(); ?> will return the thumbnail URL or return NULL if none is found. In this example, a thumbnail is only shown if one is found: <?php if( ( $video_thumbnail = get_video_thumbnail() ) != null ) { echo "<img src='" . $video_thumbnail . "' />"; } ?>
