In this article, we will go over the steps necessary for adding a video to any of the website sidebars.
For this example, the site is a Real Estate/Property site, the video we will add is of a house. The video we are adding is to promote a new house, recently put on the market.
This can be used to sell promotional ad space for existing profiles and external companies.
Step 1 - Create A New Widget:
In the HTML tab, add the EMBED code for the video below the "<div style=...>":
<div style="margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px;"> INSERT EMBED CODE HERE </div>
It is also possible to add text and links to the sidebar:
<h3> New Property on the Market - Sold by <a href="LINK URL HERE"><b>John Doe</b></a> </h3>
Step 2 - Find the Sidebar To Display the New Video Widget
Go to Toolbox » Sidebar Manager » Select the Sidebar, click "Edit":
For this example, we are using the Posts Search Result Sidebar. Inside the Sidebar, find the name of the new widget and Drag-N-Drop the widget:
Now click on Save Changes.
