Video position block

The video position block is inserted automatically into all video posts created by WordPress plugin Vimeotheque. It controls the video position into the post content; by default it can be set to be above or below the imported content from the embed settings in Vimeotheque’s settings page.

All block options are displayed into the editor sidebar when the block is selected. The defaults are set based on the embed settings set in Vimeotheque’s Settings page.
