I'm trying to figure out how to place video from a post (category video) into a sidebar. I can get other content content images and text to show, I'm guessing it has something to do with post format? If I lable the post formet as video then there must be a call for it.
so far I have:
<?php $args = array( 'numberposts' => 4, 'order'=> 'DESC', 'orderby' => 'post_date', 'category' => 5, 'post_type' => 'post' ); $postslist = get_posts( $args ); foreach ($postslist as $post) : setup_postdata($post); ?> <div class="sidebar_thumbnail"><?php the_post_thumbnail( 'sidebar_thumbnail' ); ?></div> <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3> <?php endforeach; ?> </div><!-- end sidebar video posts --> <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'sidebar1' ); ?> <?php else : ?>...
but insead of the thumbnail image link to the post I'd rather have the video from the post.
