I'm considering tubepress for my site's support page so I can display help and how to videos. I would like visitors to be able to sort or filter videos by category i.e., videos relating to how to use one app or another, as well as be able to search descriptions or meta. Is there an option to create a gallery such as this?

Thank you.

Hi John,

If you are using WordPress, our TubePress Pro plugin 1 has an interactive search feature 2 that works very well. Please keep in mind that you can only narrow search results to a single YouTube user/channel or Vimeo user. This is a limitation on the video provider’s end.

For displaying videos by category, we recommend that you create YouTube playlists or Vimeo albums to organize your videos into categories, then configure our TubePress plugin to display those playlists/categories on individual pages of your site 3. For instance, you might create a “dogs” playlist and a “cats” playlist, then on your site have one page with:

[tubepress mode=“playlist” playlistValue=“”]

and another page with:

[tubepress mode=“playlist” playlistValue=“”]

You can utilize any TubePress option 4 to configure these galleries independently of one another.

Thanks for your interest in TubePress and please let us know if you have any further questions!
