    My site uses Lightbox to display videos and that works great on all the pages but is there a way I can add one to a widget area on the home page? I’m not very experienced yet in building sites with WP and would appreciate any help I can get. Nothing I’ve tried so far has worked. Thanks.

    How do you put a video into a post/page currently?

    The same code should work in a text widget… or perhaps try this plugin:

    Nick,

    The code I use now is [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=# width=640 height=480 anchor="name of graphic"] and it works great on regular pages, just not in the widget areas of the home page.

    I actually gave up trying for this website and did something else but it would be nice to know for the future.

    Odd. Genesis runs all widget content through do_shortcode so that should work — though “doesn’t work” can mean a few things (e.g. it could be a different issue than the shortcode — but I don’t have enough info to know for sure).

    You can try this and see if that allows you to use shortcodes in widgets:
