Video with text around on home page

I want to add a video of a product and some text around it on my homepage. This would be probably doable with custom html section, but there i already have a modified code for the custom html section. 

Is there another way?

Easiest way would probably be just to embed a YouTube code or use something like https://embedresponsively.com/ to generate the iframe for your store.

Hi, @ablackcatman 


Elle here from Shopify. 

 

You can add as many sections as you'd like to your theme, including many of the same type of section.  Head to "Add Section" within the theme editor to add additional sections.

Depending on what theme you're using, there may also be a section for "Video".  This section does not give you the ability to add text, but you can add the "Rich Text" section beneath the video to display text. 

 

To learn more about sections and how they work, I'd recommend checking out our video on sections here!


If you can let me know what theme you're using, I'd be happy to look into the sections available to you so I can give you a more tailored recommendation. 

 

Cheers,

Elle

@Elle My custom html code is modified to include an element. Is there a way to add another custom html section with default code?

@ablackcatman Would you be able to expand on this? Are you unable to add an additional Custom HTML section from your theme editor?

If you can let me know what theme you're using it would be helpful!


Thanks!

Hello ablackcatman

 

I think this app can help you to add 'video with text' like 'image with text'. So instead of image it will be video from youtube, vimeo or custom upload. Here is the app link: https://apps.shopify.com/pluspage

Here, they have a quick tutorial:
