How Do You Create Video Lists and Show them?

Getting started with Simple Media Directory is super easy but the plugin works a little different from others – so an introduction is necessary. The most important thing to remember is that the base pillars of this video gallery or video portfolio plugin are Lists, not individual links or categories. A list is simply a niche or subtopic to group your relevant Videos together. The most common use of SMD is to create and display multiple Lists of Video Galleries on specific topics or subtopics on the same page. Everything revolves around the Video Lists. Once you create a few Video Lists, you can then display them in many different ways.

With that in mind you should start with the following simple steps.

  1. Go to New List and create one by giving it a name. Then simply start adding List items or links by filling up the fields you want. Use the Add New button to add more Listings in your list.

  2. Though you can just create one list and use the Single List mode. This video directory plugin works the best when you create a few Video Lists or Video Galleries – each conatining about 15-20 List items. This is the most usual use case scenario. But you can do differently once you get the idea.

  3. Now go to a page or post where you want to display the directory. On the right sidebar you will see a ShortCode Generator block. Click the button and a Popup LightBox will appear with all the options that you can select. Choose All Lists, and select a Style. Then Click Add Shortcode button. Shortcode will be generated. Simply copy paste that to a location on your page where you want the directory to show up.

That’s it! The above steps are for the basic usages. If you had any specific questions about how something works, do not hesitate to contact us from the Support Forum. 🙂
