How to Add a Video to Your Home Page

October 24, 2009 · Print This Article

A *lot* of people have asked me how to add a video to the home page of their WordPress website using the Chiropractor2Web WordPress theme.

The theme comes with a static home page by default since many business owners want that instead of the traditional list of blog posts on the home page. And many have figured out how to edit the HTML of the home page to replace the image with a video.

But there is an easier way…

Here is an easier way do to it – just create a new “Page” in WordPress, embed the video (I used a YouTube video in the example) and then add some minor styling tweaks for margins and you are all set!

This video walks you through how to do it step-by-step. Even though I describe how to do this with the Chiropractor2Web theme, this could work for any WordPress theme.

    Good morning. I’m trying to get your video embedding to work, but I’m having trouble wrapping the text. I thought it might be because my video was too large, but it’s actually smaller than the one you’re using. I’m having trouble seeing the code you’re using. I’m using this:

    I’d love to get this to work.

    Thanks
