Vimeotheque PRO plugin post options

General settings

The following options control how your imported Vimeo videos will be visible in your blog pages.

Embed videos in archive pages

By default the videos will be embedded only on single post pages. To embed on archive pages, this option must be enabled.

Import as regular post type

All Vimeo videos are imported as custom post type vimeo-video. To import them as regular posts, check this options. This will also import tags as regular post tags and will set the regular post type categories.

Include microdata on video pages

This option will include video microdata (things like duration, thumbnail url, title, etc) with all your video embeds. This data is useful for search engines to better understand your page and display it correctly in searches. If using video SEO plugins, just leave this option disabled.

Check video status after import

By default, once imported, a video post can be changed only manually. If the video changes on Vimeo (for example, it’s deleted) that change won’t be reflected on your website. By checking this option the plugin will check your videos on Vimeo once every 24 hours to see if anything has changed. If the video is no longer public or can’t be displayed on your website, the post associated with it on your website will be automatically set to status Pending review.

Video post type options

These settings control the custom post type implemented by the plugin.

Video post type public

When enabled, the video post type vimeo-video will be visible in your website front-end and will display as posts. You will be able to add menus based on the post type categories and widgets.

When disabled, the imported videos can be used only for embedding in other post types using shortcodes or the blocks for the Block Editor.

Include video post type on homepage

If video post type is set as public, when enabling this option, if your front page displays a list of posts, the custom post type video will be inserted among them. Your front-page will display a list containing both regular posts and custom post type vimeo-video posts.

Include videos post type in main RSS feed

If video post type is public and this option is enabled, your main RSS feed that normally displays only regular posts will also contain the post type vimeo-video.
