Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

Ok so it's great to see we have the new videos added but there are a few issues on it's layout especially around the view counts, like button and embed button as you can see in the image below. Also everythign in the bottom part seemed a bit cramped.

You can see a demo here: New Video Layout For Videos Detail


Now here is the after image once the bit of code was added.

As you can see everything now looks a lot better.

  1. The main thing first was to move the counts and the embed button, also to make the embed button a little smaller
  2. Next was to adjust the social buttons margins
  3. In the counts was to get the word views to show
  4. Also get the word like to show for the like button
  5. Added an about title above description
  6. Make the video Responsive

So that's what I did and here is the code I used.

First is to move the embed button so we need to add a little bit of code into our site&pages custom code end of page section

// Move the embed button on video page
x$('.videoDetailPage-getEmbedCode_wrap ').appendTo('.videoDetailPage-viewVideo');

Next is to add the css for all the adjustments to the page including the repsonsive code for the videos. All this goes in your design studio custom css section

/*Detail Page Corrections*/
.videoDetailPage-viewVideo {
float: left;
margin: 10px 0px 10px 10px;
.videoDetailPage-viewVideo .icon-eye{
.videoDetailPage .icon-love{
.videoDetailPage-mainVideo .button-tiny.likeButton a{ font-size:12px }

/** Adding A Video Input Correction As It Was Cutting If The Text Top And Bottom **/
 padding: 0px 0px 0px 4px;
/* Social Actions Box */
.videoDetailPage .socialActions{
/* Spacing for the social buttons */
.videoDetailPage .socialSharingButton {
margin-bottom:5px; margin-right:5px;

/* Make video Responsive */
.videoDetailPage-video {
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    width: 100%;
    height: 0;
    padding-bottom: 56.25%;
    position: relative;
.videoDetailPage-video iframe{
    max-width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
/* Adjust get embed code button after being moved */
.button.button-secondary.videoDetailPage-getEmbedCode{ font-size:12px }
.videoDetailPage-embedCode{ width:100%; margin-bottom:20px }
.videoDetailPage-getEmbedCode_wrap { text-align:right; width:100%; margin: -20px 10px 10px 0px;float:right }

/* Add a title to the video description */
.videoDetailPage-mainVideo >.entry-content::before{content:"About"; display:block; margin-bottom:5px; text-decoration:underline }

That's it, it should all look a little neater now.
