TubePress is a PHP library that displays beautiful YouTube video galleries in your web site. It's highly configurable and easy to use. Check out a demo gallery here.
There are two different TubePress packages available:
Both packages are released under the GPLv3. TubePress was created, is developed and maintained by Eric D. Hough2. Download 2.1 Latest stable release The latest packages of TubePress can always be downloaded as zip files from https://www.tradebit.com 2.2 Subversion Interested in using the very latest version of TubePress? You can use any Subversion client to check out the latest developmental build of the WordPress plugin. 2.2.1 From the command line If you have command line access to your server, and have an svn client in your path, this method is the easiest.
TubePress can be installed and activated just like any other WordPress plugin. See the WordPress docs on plugin management for more information.
This will result in something like the following
3.2 Multiple galleries
The options in Settings > TubePress are the global options for TubePress. The real power of the plugin lies in the ability to put multiple galleries on multiple pages. You can do this by using TubePress shortcodes on your posts/pages.
For example, say on one page I want to display a gallery of videos that are tagged with "football". On this page, I would type[tubepress mode='tag', tagValue='football']
on the page where I want the gallery to show up. And say on another page I want to display a gallery with the default (global) options that were set in Settings > TubePress. On this page I would type[tubepress]
where I wanted the gallery to show up. You can follow this procedure for unlimited galleries on unlimited posts/pages. Just use any TubePress shortcode to control the gallery content. Get creative!3.3 Upgrading
Upgrading is usually just a matter of copying the latest version of TubePress over your existing installation. However, if you want to be sure there are no problems, follow these directions in order.
The TubePress plugin comes with widget functionality, which allows you to place a customizable list of videos in your blog's sidebar. Here's an example of the widget's output:
There are no separate installation instructions; if you've installed and enabled the TubePress plugin then you're done. Please see the WordPress widget documentation for general info on how to enable and disable widgets.
This is what the TubePress widget control looks like:
In the "Title" section of the widget control, enter the text you'd like for the sidebar's header.
To customize which videos show up in your sidebar, just use a TubePress shortcode. Please note that by default, the TubePress widget will use the following shortcode:[tubepress resultsPerPage='3', views='false', description='true', descriptionLimit='50', playerLocation='popup', thumbHeight='105', thumbWidth='135']
Of course, like any TubePress shortcode, you can override any setting you like.3.5 Initialize your options If you'd like to reset your TubePress options to their default values, you can do so by using a special page nested inside the plugin. If your blog URL is https://www.tradebit.com you'd need to navigate to https://www.tradebit.com with your web browser. Once there, you can just click the Reset TubePress Options button. Of course, you'll need to be a WordPress administrator (access level 9) for your blog to do this. 4. TubePress Pro TubePress Pro allows you to run TubePress anywhere that supports PHP5. This means that you can easily insert video galleries in your PHP-enabled site!
