Creating a Videos Page

A "Videos" page is a convenient way to provide a place for group members to share embedded videos from services such as TED, Vimeo, or YouTube.


First create a "Videos" Page by adding a new page in Panels. (see Creating Custom Pages for additional instructions).

When your page is set up and named, click the "Edit content"  link to the right of the title of your "Videos" panel page.

You will be taken to a page that shows the regions of your panel page. Click on the gear icon in the upper left corner of the region in which you want your search widget to display.

Select "Add content" from the dropdown menu.

This will take you to a page where you can add widgets and custom content.
Click on the “Videos, All [group]” widget (which can be found by selecting the left menu item “Widgets, group menu items”).

The "Video, Featured [group] widget"  is found in the “Widgets, group dashboard” category in the left menu.
A video must be set to "public" in the group settings and in the publishing options as "published" and "publicized to group home page" in order to show up in the featured videos category. (see bottom of page for more about featuring a video).

Click on the widget name to insert that widget. A new page will launch with a "Finish" button. Click the "Finish" button to insert the widget. Only one widget at a time may be added using this process.
Click the "Save" button at the bottom of your panel regions page to set your changes.
You and group members can now begin adding videos to your "Video(s)" page (see "Creating A Video"). You can expect the video page to look similar to the example below.

More About Featured Videos

Only group administrators can set videos to be "Featured". 
You will need to edit some of these settings to make a video show in the "Featured" section.

Make sure the video is set to"public" in the group settings.
Publishing options should be checked as "published" and "publicized to group home page". 
Be certain the video is not archived by the sunset date (described above).
