Hi keith10456,

First of all mate, thank you for this MOD...This is a v good mod and v simple to install..Awesome..

I just installed this mod and I have a couple of questions. I would really appreciate your help:

1) Is there a way to change or set a video to appear first..I am talking about the first video that you see in the Player at the top. Everytime I check, its always this boring "Ok Go interview" video. Is there a way to control what video appears first? Also how often does this video change?

2) I like the "Back" and "Next" button. At the moment, these buttons are at the top right side above the videos list. Is there a way to insert these buttons at the bottom of the videos list as well?

Thank you once again for this MOD.

Cheers...

1) It doesn't always show the same video. The video should change at least once every day. It pulls YouTube's recently featured video. To change it:

Open

Code: Select all

root/styles/yourstyle/youtube.html
Find

Code: Select all

quvic.PresentVideos('recently_featured','',1);
Replace With

Code: Select all

quvic.PresentVideos('search','your_search_term_here',1);
Note: Be sure to replace your_search_term_here with the term you want the script to search for. For example, sports, movies, etc. Also, DO NOT remove the quotation marks around the search term.


2) Trying to work that out... Haven't found a solution yet ;)

nice Mod - already bookmarked :mrgreen:

It would be great if it will be possible to add some kind of categories feature - like if someone is using the mod for a band fanpage they can file the content in categories like "interviews", "tv-appearances", "live clips" and so on.
Hmmm... I'll look at the code and see.
Hi Keith,

are you still considering some king of categorie/grouping feature? :geek:

Yes I am... Just been a bit hectic for me. I'll try to give a look this weekend.

I have to make some small install edits also (this last one is just a reminder for myself).

Check your language edits to common.php (root/language/en/common.php) and your functions.php edits (root/includes/functions.php).

I removed the code. Please don't post all your files complete. Post something like 10 rows before and after the affected place.
Need a mod/extension created/installed, other custom-coded solution or a server admin? https://tumba25.net

Nice mod....

I use the code to fetch my related videos up...

Code: Select all

quvic.PresentVideos('search','cyprus',1);
However there is not much added to my catogory, for example if my search term was CYPRUS they might be only a new video uploaded on that subject each few weeks so the shown video is always the same till a new one is added to youtube, is it possible to search for example CYPRUS but show a random video from the searched term.

Is it also possible to show how many related videos - About 20,100 results and also page numbers ?

Thanks for you work.

1) Yes it's possible but beyond the scope of this mod (and/or the mod's intended purpose).

2) Same as number 1...
