Video Header

Either do not understand something, or it does not work:
I bought Focus Premium, because I want video in header exactly as it is in the photo theme Focus. I really do not see any possibility, where I set up.

    Hi Tomáš

    Thanks for reaching out. Apologies for the delay you’ve experienced over the Easter holiday period.

    The Focus slider, home/archive page thumbnails and single page video background all operate off post featured images. Add a each video as a post and adding a featured image to each post will get your site looking just like the demo:


    On the single post page the featured image is used as the video background at the top of the page:

    To add your video in the same position as the demo 458 post above, use the Focus Video plugin. This area is found below the Visual editor when editing a post. If you don’t yet have the Focus Video plugin installed, there will be a link to do so.

    Hopefully this helps explain a bit more about how Focus works and what it’s capable of. Let us know if you have any questions and we’ll help out as soon as possible.

    Hi Andrew,
    Thank you.
    Unfortunately, I still do not quite understand where I can set.
    This means that in WordPress menu will not adjust Appearance, but Site? When I select a Site, then I choose to edit the "editor" and under-edited site should be able to choose the content header?
    My result is still not at all resemble http://demo.siteorigin.com/focus/2013/02/20/ferrari-458/ or http://demo.siteorigin.com/focus/
    I would like to use Focus template, but losing battle with its setting.
    Thank you very much for help

    Hi Tomáš. Focus doesn’t add a header image item under Appearance or in the Customizer.

    Each post has a featured image. Have you added your content as posts? Posts > Add New. When you add a post in the right column you’ll see a link that says Add Featured Image. That featured image is used for the home page and single post video background.

    Here is how to add featured images: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    The background image here: http://demo.siteorigin.com/focus/2013/02/20/ferrari-458/ is a Featured Image. If you were to edit the demo site and change that image you would go to Posts > Edit the Ferrari post > locate the Featured Image in the right column and change it.

    It’s all about Featured Images. Hope that gets you started :)

    To confirm, the tutorial here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/. Focus is not using the second part “Featured Header Images” Focus is only using the first part of that tutorial, post featured images.

    Posts > edit any post > Click Add Featured Image link in the right column.

    I'm starting to navigate – it must be post rather than site. I will therefore have to change site structure, but I am beginning to suspect what to do. Thank you!

    Super, glad to hear you’re making progress. Let us know if we can assist further.

    All the best.

    Is there any way to get a video description to show beside each post on the post page? I need to show description and a purchase button beside each post item.
