Easytube – Post Types & Taxonomies

How Can We Help?

Please read first about WordPress Taxonomies.

WordPress by default has 2 taxonomies (category and tag which we are using as video categories and video tags in this theme) but we have created other 3 Taxonomies which you will see below with more details.

So, we are using the default wordpress post in easytube theme for the video gallery, this means that we are using category and tag as video category and video tag.

This theme has 1 more custom post type called “gallery” and this custom post type has 2 custom taxonomies:

  1. “blogtype” Blog Category
  2. “blog_tag” Blog Tag

Performers & Channels

There are other two custom taxonomies in easytube called performer and channel.

You can attach a performer or channel to any video post same like a tag or category.

Taxonomy Images

All taxonomies here (Categories, Channels and Performers) have also the image support.

Performer Images

To attach a profile image to any performer navigate to performers tab under the posts or photo galleries.
A performer image must be larger than 182 x 267 pixels because we are using aqua resizer for wordpress and you can’t add external urls, this feature requires uploaded images in the wordpress media library and php GD Library installed on the server.

Channel and Category Images

Again here the display works via aqua resizer and it requires uploaded images in media library larger than 300 x 250 pixels.
