YouTube list of videos shows janky pagination

May 18, 2017 10:27PM PDT
I've got a list of about 25 video IDs in the video source section (comma separated list) and in feed options I have 5 thumbs per page set.

The results of the shortcode, however, are odd:

I see the pagination (i.e. pages 1, 2, 3, 4) divided as they should be for the total # of videos in the comma separated list (i.e. 25 divided by 5 would yield 5 pages to flip through), but ALL 25 thumbs showing on page 1 (i.e. not 5 per page as expected), and clicking on any of the subsequent pages of the pagination (i.e. clicking on page 2) produces a page with no videos found ('cause they're all on the first page!).

I've tinkered with different settings (Ajax vs. non, etc.) but nothing seems to get the pagination to work with a list of videos.

It's worth noting that if I change the source to simply be the YouTube channel instead of a list of videos that the pagination DOES work correctly. My workaround at this point is to point the source to the YouTube channel, but we would prefer to display only a list of curated vides, but we just can't get the pagination thing figured out...

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hi Ben,

Thanks for contacting us, and I’m so sorry for the trouble! This is a known bug which can lead to incorrect thumbnails per page when you are sourcing from a manual list of videos. So instead of using a comma-separated list, we’d recommend creating a YouTube playlist of the desired videos and point TubePress to that playlist instead (Which videos > Video Source > This YouTube playlist). This will resolve the pagination issues and allow you to display only those videos you’d like to have in your TubePress gallery. Again, very sorry for this inconvenience; please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you!
