I was able to follow instructions to create a Videos page, using instructions provided by your Support gurus.
However, now I cannot create the thums corresponding to each video article on my test blog, at http://testsite.sandal-woodsblog.com/video/
. I simply get a huge blanks space where the video would "normally" display - and *no* thums anywhere on the page. I followed the following instructions:

<?php else: ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php the_content(__('Read more'));?><div class="clear"></div>
now to implement you would put in custom fields
value: the embed code of the video
I wonder what could have gone wrong if the thumbs are not created? I would like to know:
- When entering the custom fields, is the main embed code left in place, too? I normally have the embed code, entered in HTML, at the beginning of each post.
- Where will the thumbs reside?
