A *lot* of people have asked me how to add a video to the home page of their WordPress website using the Expand2Web SmallBiz WordPress theme.
The SmallBiz 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 SmallBiz theme, this could work for any WordPress theme.
Try it out, and leave me your questions or feedback in the comments below!
Update:Here is the code snippet I use in the video:
<div style="float:left; margin-right:15px; margin-bottom:10px;">
