I'm looking at the Essence theme, and it seems to be what I need. BUT, I'm wondering about video use. I am new to ithemes, so I don't know if you have an ithemey-way of handling video, and I didn't see any reference in the tutorials. Questions would be:

- Can the slider be replaced with a video?

- If I want to put a video on a page, would that be done using a widget in a sidebar? Some other in-house secret weapon?

Thank you!

for our in-house (not so secret) weapons, check out our PluginBuddy brand, and the plugins we offer.

The rotating Images on the front page can be replaced by a video, that would require a minor code change, and we are here on the support forums to help out with that. To add video's to other parts of the site, indeed, this can be done using widgets and a variety of readily available WordPress plugins.

hope that helps,
