I have been using DW Focus for a number of years now. It doesn’t show video posts properly anymore, and I’m wondering if i should upgrade to DW Focus 2. Is it basically the same structure or would i have to change a lot of things to get it to work?

At the moment, the DW Focus and DW Focus 2 is different in layout and feature. If you want to use the DW Focus theme, you can send me the username & password of your site for further checking and we will help you fix the issue.
You can find the document guide of the DW Focus 2 here: https://www.designwall.com/guide/dw-focus-2/

I have checked and see that you are using the older version. We have released version 1.3.7. With the latest version, we have fixed these issues.

So sorry, that’s embarrassing that I didn’t notice that. I’ve resubscribed and downloaded the latest. DO i just install it as a new template, or is there a way to update the template i have installed?

I did the update and it worked. i need to make some tweaks. However it’s still out of alignment with the videos. i went to support to view the video on “how to embed videos” and it tells me i don’t have access. I did resubscribe today so I’m wondering what I need to do to get access to that video. Sorry to be such a problem.

To add the video for the blog post, you can insert your VIDEO URL here: https://prnt.sc/11qlfn5

That worked. one last question, i cannot get it to stop the autoplay. i tried ?autoplay=0 at the end of the URL and it didn’t work. thank you for your help.

I have checked your site and see that all the video is stoping the autoplay

Actually they are still autoplaying. they don’t autoplay on mobile. Example, for me this autoplays except on mobile: https://sozocial.com/press/shawn-bolz-mentoring-you-online-in-the-hearing-god-processing-your-prophetic-with-you/

I don’t understand it, but I’ll keep researching. I appreciate your looking at it.

OK, one last comment. i reviewed your DW Focus 2 demo on your site.. i noticed that all vimeo videos did NOT autoplay, but ALL of the youtube videos did! I wonder if it’s a new YouTube thing! http://demo.designwall.com/#dw-focus-2

I have checked and see that you can go to dw-focus/inc/media-content.php file and find line 41.

$output = str_replace( 'feature=oembed', 'feature=oembed&autoplay=1', $output );
