    Custom Post Support

    Enable support for your website's custom post types (if used).

    Video Handling

    Video may be added to a site in several ways. In addition, a particular desktop theme may have its own method of handling video. To cover as many methods as possible WPtouch Pro offers choices in how video is handled. If the default method is not proving successful for your particular desktop theme, try one of the other methods.

    Video Handling Options


    Resizing Fixed-Width Video Some auto-embed code provided by video services add or include fixed-dimension iframes to your posts and pages. When video widths are fixed to be wider than a device’s screen, native resizing abilities are overridden and video overflow is often the result.One method to try when working with fixed-width elements is to add custom CSS to WPtouch Pro that will modify the item. Adding the following to your child theme’s style.css file  per these instructions should allow a fixed-dimension iframe to reflow to any device’s screen width:  

    iframe { width: 100% !important;}

     Best practice is to avoid using fixed dimensions. Where possible edit embed code to use percentages for width definitions rather than pixels or ems.
