Locking A Content

  1. Create your post as usual.
  2. Wrap your locked content with FWTube shortcode.
    This is your public content
    [fwtube id="XXXX " width="560" height="315" autoplay="false" info="false" control="false"]
     This is your hidden content
    This is your public content.
  3. Notes:
    • XXXX is your Youtube Video ID
    • You can set the width and height to your needs (Default width: 560, height: 315).
    • You can set autoplay to true (Default autoplay: false).
    • You can set infobar to true to show top information bar (Default info: false).
    • You can set control to true to show bottom control bar (Default control: false).
  4. You can use image or other media inside the FWTube shortcode.
    If you want to show a video without locking any content, you can wrap nothing inside the FWTube shortcode and position it to your likes.
  5. Save your post.
