This is just a little extra I thought I'd throw in for you. I'm going to show you how to set up a quick video gallery using the videos on our site.

First we need to Install a couple of modules.


Then we'll enable the modules we need.

Enable Modules

  • Chaos Tools
  • Views
  • Views UI

Now it's time to create the gallery view.

Create the view

  • Go to “Structure => Views” (admin/structure/views)
  • Click "Add new view"
    • View name: Video Gallery
    • Create a page
    • Display format: Grid of fields
    • Items to display: 9 (I'm going to have three columns, so I'm going to show nine videos because it's a multiple of three, and it will give me an even grid.)
  • (Continue & edit)
    • Select the grid settings
    • Number of columns: 3
  • (Apply (all displays))

Now we'll add the fields we want to our view.

  • Add fields:
    • Content: Video
      • Uncheck “Create a label”
      • Formatter: Video player
      • Dimensions: 160x120
    • Video: Duration
    • Content: Body
      • Uncheck “Create a label”
    • Content: Link
      • Uncheck “Create a label”
      • Text to display: View more…

Now, when we save the view, we can see our gallery at "/video-gallery". Looks good!
