When I first began my Forum, I asked if there was a way to load Videos onto the Side Bar Area of the Dashboard Page.
I was given information as to a Plugin for this purpose. I installed that Plugin and it works fine.
But here is my problem:
The Side Bar Area is of a certain size; and the Forum Posting Area to the left of the Side Bar is also of a certain size.
Videos which I load onto the Side Bar (taken from various sources online) usually have Width and Height such as:
<iframe width="492" height="277" ....
So, in order to get the entire "Still View Pic" of the Video to display, I usually have to change the settings to: width="280" height="280"
That works OK except for one thing: MOST videos have an "expand to full screen" link to click on ... however with the Side Bar Area NOT allowing for the original WIDTH of the "Video Still" to display, that LINK cannot be seen.
So my question is: Is there a way to EXPAND the SIZE of the Side Bar Area Temporarily? [For the Admin and Visitors and/or Members]
After viewing a particular Video in the Side Bar, the Size Ratio of the Side Bar and the Forum Posting Area would be changed back to the regular size. Is this possible?
I have included two screen snap shots of my Forum to illustrate what I have mentioned above.
Any help on this issue would be appreciated!
An additional thought: The Side Bar Area has an "expand and collapse arrow", and when clicked on that collapses the Side Bar
so all that is seen is the expanded Forums Area.
So my thought is .... if there were the same "collapse arrow" option for the Forum Side - and then when clicked on
the Side Bar would fill the screen. That would solve the problem of the "width issue" regarding the uploaded videos I mentioned above.
