    I have an idea that I would like to try to implement, but I’m not sure how to go about it.

    What I would like to do is to have the Main Stories slider toggle between being visible, and then being replaced with an embedded video when the associated YouTube Channel goes live (preferably automatically if that is possible). If not, would it be possible to autotoggle with a widget?

    I also have the pro version, and would like to try to integrate it into that also.

    Thanks for any advice!


    Hi @alanduncan296,

    Sorry you cannot show videos on image thumbnails, even not in the slider. If you really want to show Youtube video then you can use the ‘Video Widget’ from where you can easily show the youtube videos by inserting Video url.



    I have thought of a better way to describe it.

    I’m trying to figure out if there is a relatively straightforward way to add functionality to the theme by doing the following:

    When there is no live stream on a specified YouTube channel: the standard slider is presented.

    When there is a live stream on a specified YouTube channel: the slider is replaced by an embedded video box that presents the stream in its place. Once the stream has finished, the home page refreshes and the slider is then presented as per how it is now.

    Would there be a relatively straightforward way to add this?


    Ok we understood that if the youtube channel has a live steaming video then you want to show those live streaming video on Main slider other wise slider will remain as normal.

    But It’s the extra feature for the theme so you just need to hire a developer to customize the codes as according to your requirements.
