True Mag theme fix is a smart tool that allow you to smoothly integrate WP Video Robot with the True Mag premium theme. It allows you to choose which layout to use when your imported video renders on the front-end. It replaces the use of dataFillers and allows the plugin to seamlessly use all the theme video features with your imported videos.
Follow these steps to use the plugin with True Mag:
1/ Download and install the theme
- Buy and download the True Mag Theme
- Go to Appearance -> Themes and click on Add New
- Then you need to upload the theme that you downloaded
- Finally, Activate the Theme
2/ Download and install WP Video Robot
3/ Download and install the theme fix
Head to the store and get this add-on for free, then install it on your site exactly like any other WordPress plugin. You have another tutorial here if you’re having trouble with this step.
4/ Set up the theme fix options
Next, you can define how the plugin integrates your videos with theme. You need to set that up only once. All videos you’ll import in the future will be using those settings. If you’ve made any change, and you have already imported some or lot of videos, you can update them according to your new choices by clicking on the UPDATE EXISTING VIDEOS button.
True Mag Video Template: You can pick among two templates which one should be used when rendering your videos full-width and inboxed layouts
Disable Autoembed Player: If the template you’ve chosen on the previous step does not include a video player, then you need to enable this option to allow the plugin to embed its own player automatically. In case you’re having two players on the single video page, please turn off this option.
Use WPVR Player: The template you’ve chosen will be using the theme’s video player, except if you enable this option. In that case, the plugin player will be used. We recommend enabling this option when using one of the following add-ons: WPVR Video Station, WPVR Share to View or WPVR Monetizer.
5/ Start importing videos
You can either import one single video using our Video Wizard or mass import videos using sources. We’ll cover here only the manual adding mode.
The result when importing through sources is exactly the same.
1/ On your WP Admin menu, under Videos, click on Add New. Then, click on ‘Video Wizard’.
2/ Pick the video service you want to import your video from.
3/ Enter either the video URL or the video ID.
4/ Pick the video data you want to import and click on IMPORT VIDEO
5/ The page reloads and a message shows up, telling you that the video has been successfully imported.
6/ If you’re using a source to import videos, you will be happy to see that a new tab has been added. It allows you to choose which channels or playlists should be automatically assigned to the imported videos.
7/ Check out how the video renders on the front-end.
As you can see, the plugin has implemented the views count, among other video data, so the True Mag theme can use them.
Okay! That’s all you need to do. Thanks to the theme fix, your site is ready to smoothly integrate all the videos you’ll import using WP video Robot.
