Adding a video gallery in 7.1

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hi all,

I am looking at option how to add a video gallery to my clients website. 

Unfortunately there still does not seem to be a gallery section just for videos in 7.1, is this correct?

As a workaround I know I can add a gallery to a blank section and embed videos via the little "+" sign. However, if I do this the caption/description I add for the video does not show.

How can I get the description of an embedded video to show under the video in the gallery?

As always, thank you very much for your advice.

Yes, that's correct. I'm not sure if there are any plans to be able to add videos to the gallery section.

Your best bet may well just be to use the video block and text block to create the style you want.

On Squarespace 7.1, you can add a Videos Page to create a browsable library of videos on your site. In a videos page, you can embed externally hosted videos from Vimeo or YouTube, or upload your own video files to your site directly.

Video pages are organised into two parts:

  • the Video List page is a browsable landing page for your video library. The page displays all added videos in a grid of featured images, organised by categories.
  • individual Video Details pages - Clicking on a video opens its Video Details page, where you can watch the video and find more information about it.
