For one dutch site I need a block where we can show external video's on the frontsite or a com page
Is this possible and how to do it?

I know i can use the html tag and embed the video code…..

What I mean is like a block as the Picture of the day…..
the problem is that I don't know php coding :(

It is possible to do:



You could also do:


[block="video" filter="videos_of_the_day"]main_content[/block]
and use the gallery system (put the videos in a gallery named videos_of_the_day).

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
