Black boxes on video archive

    Hi,
    I’m having a problem with the video archive template.
    The thumbnails or icons of the child-pages do not appear at all, only black rectangles. The videos are posted via URL on Youtube.
    I’ve seen a post about his here, but it did not help.

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is marceloramos.net.

    I’m unable to view your site to take a look and see what the issue may be. That said, it sounds like you may need to set a featured image for each of the video pages.

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    The theme documentation has more details on how to setup single video and video archive pages.

    Let me know if you have questions about setting featured images and if that helps take care of the issue.

    Hello,

    Sorry, the site was not public, now it is visible to you.
    Please take a look on videos and you see what I mean.
    I do not want a featured image; I want it in the video preview…

    Thanks a lot!

    Marcelo.

    Hi,

    I think I got it now! It was in fact a featured image after all, but it was not working.

    Thank you!

    Could I ask you something else?
    I’ve seen some people asking you about changing background in pages other than the homepage.
    I see that I must change CSS, but I have ZERO experience on that.
    Could you guide me step by step in doing so?
    I tried to change the CSS with the code you gave to somebody in other forum, but again, no luck!!

    Thanks

    Great, glad to hear the featured images fixed things up.

    As for additional questions, it will be helpful to create a new support topic post with those questions. This will help keep this post on topic and make things easier to follow.

    Thanks!
