How To Customize Streaming Content

  2. There are three primary sections that you can edit:
  • The Title: The title is what is displayed on top of the streaming content. If you renamed the "Coupons" feature "Deals", you will likely want the streaming content title to display "Recent Deals" or "Top Deals" instead of the default title.

  • Amount Of Posts To Be Displayed On The Homepage: You can control how many posts will display on the homepage. If you have a video directory for example, you will probably want to display 12-24 videos on the homepage to really promote the primary content found on your site.

  • Must Have Photo (Yes or No): While it is our recommendation to force members to add an image in order for that piece of content to stream on your homepage, you have the option to allow posts without an image to show as well:
