    Hey there,

    I`m using the arnold theme and based on it I build this site:

    andreasristau.com

    Question: Is there any chance to have some moving images/a video upfront before you enter the the actual website or the main page?

    like this for example:

    https://www.brandtgolde.com/

    When you click “get started” here, you enter the actual page.

    Is that possible with my arnold theme too?

    Thank in advance,
    Andreas

    Hi,

    Yes, it is possible. You need to add a new page as fornt-page, set the current page as a work page

    Please create a new page, set no template, activate Pagebuilder, insert a Fullwidth wrap, set background video for this Fullwidth wrap, add a button or text module for the button, add work page link on the button

    select this page as frontpage https://doc.seatheme.net/general-topics/how-to-set-frontpage/

    Regards!

    Hey,

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I did as suggested:

    I set the New Page as frontpage (Settings/Homepage…)

    I created the new page (I called it “Start Video”) with: set no template, activate Pagebuilder, insert a Fullwidth wrap, set background video for this Fullwidth wrap…

    So yes, type for fullwidth wrap is: Standard (video background) and I put in this url “https://vimeo.com/453307500” in all 3 Fields.

    But all the new front page shows is the page name (Start-Video), but no video. See here:

    https://andreasristau.com/

    Do I need to put in sth else under “video url” in the fullwidth wrap settings?
    Or does the video need to be saved/uploaded in a different way?

    I`d be happy for more help:-) + thanks,
    Andreas

    Please enter the hosted video file URL, it doesn’t support 3rd video platform like Vimeo, Youtube

    Please enter the different format video file URL for the 3 inputs(enter mp4 at least), the URL should be like:

    https://xxx.com/xxx.mp4
    https://xxx.com/xxx.wemb
    https://xxx.com/xxx.ogg

    Hey,

    it works now great! Thanks a lot:-)

    One last question:

    Height Auto = Browser Height works best for desktop

    Is there any chance for this to work on mobile this way too. Currently mobile just shows a very random framing of the video.

    See:
    andreasristau.com … on mobile
    Is there a quick fix for this so that the video is shown on mobile in full browser heigth too?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Hi,
    Please paste the custom CSS code to “Appearance > Customize: Additional CSS”:

    @media (max-width: 768px) and (orientation: portrait) {
    .fullscreen-wrap.fullwidth-wrap {
        height: 100vh!important;
     }
    }

    Regards
