<h2><?= $page->titel()->html() ?></h2>
<?= $page->videos()->toBlocks() ?>
<p><?= $page->description()->html() ?></p>
The title field and the description render just fine, but the video embed doesn’t.
I actually just need a simple video field for youTubes and Vimeos, but I couldn’t find one in the docs, so I took a block with just a video block.
That is because
videos is a native Kirby method ($page->videos() | Kirby CMS).
See also naming fields: Fields | Kirby CMS
You can get the field via
<?= $page->content()->get('videos')->toBlocks() ?>
Or rename your field to something else.
Yes, it was the field name. I thought the forbidden name was “video”.
But still, what is the blueprint field type for video if it isn’t a block? Can I only have a blocks field to have a video field? I couldn’t find it in the docs.
You would use a files field and limit what type of files can be uploded via a file blueprint (using the
accept option (if you want to use a video file).
If you only want to use a video url, you can use a
url field, that’s what’s used in the video block as well. There is no
video field type.
Maybe there should be one?
A video embed isn’t really a file that you upload to a site, thats why I thought that would be the wrong way to do it. The files field I think of as something to upload and then present it to the user like an image or for downloading it like a PDF, but a video embed feels different to me. But maybe that’s really just me.
I didn’t say you should upload a video. As I said, use a
url field to put your video url into.
This is the video block blueprint:
It uses a
url field as well.
If you want, you can add a validator to the field that checks for youtube/vimeo urls.
PS: That video blocks blueprint I got from the starter kit that I used this time.
