  • Locking A Content

    1. Create your post as usual.
    2. Wrap your locked content with FWTube shortcode.
      This is your public content [fwtube id="XXXX " width="560" height="315" autoplay="false" info="false" control="false"] This is your hidden content [/fwtube] This is your public content.
    3. Notes:
    4. XXXX is your Youtube Video ID
    5. You can set the width and height to your needs (Default width: 560, height: 315).
    6. You can set autoplay to true (Default autoplay: false).
    7. You can set infobar to true to show top information bar (Default info: false).
    8. You can set control to true to show bottom control bar (Default control: false).
    9. You can use image or other media inside the FWTube shortcode.
      If you want to show a video without locking any content, you can wrap nothing inside the FWTube shortcode and position it to your likes.
    10. Save your post.
