Add-On: Flexible Thumbnail Rows

This add-on automatically adjusts the height of thumbnail rows in TubePress galleries, ensuring that the metadata (runtime, title, description, etc) for each video is completely visible. This overcomes TubePress themes that might use a fixed height for the thumbnail rows where any metadata that is taller than the row will be cut off.

  • This article applies to TubePress when used in WordPress. Standalone PHP users should refer to this article instead.
  • This add-on is pre-installed at no cost for TubePress Express users (including Jimdo and 1&1) and Wix users; you only need to purchase and install the add-on if you are using TubePress as a WordPress plugin or in standalone PHP.
  • All non-legacy themes distributed with TubePress will not require this add-on as they use other CSS techniques to ensure that all thumbnail data is visible. This add-on is useful for all the TubePress "legacy" themes, or third-party themes that cut off thumbnail metadata.
