Do you own a website that creates content and provides a lot of helpful video posts? If so, you need to have a great way to show an eye-catching and informative video library.

Today, we’re going to create a video gallery page with Meta Box and Oxygen. Here is my example:

The example of creating a video gallery page with Meta Box and Oxygen

Video Version

Before Getting Started

The gallery includes a lot of videos, and each one will be saved as a post. So, we'll have a custom post type for it. All the information about the video such as title, description, and author is the post’s default information.

To avoid making your site heavier, we will save the videos somewhere else, for example on Youtube. Then, I will save the video link in the custom fields of the post.

Places to save the video's information

For the custom post type and custom fields, we use Meta Box and its extensions:

The last one is Oxygen. You should use the 3.9 version or higher which has the native integration with Meta Box.

Step 1: Create a New Custom Post Type

Go to Meta Box > Post Types > New Post Type to create a new custom post type for videos.

Create a new custom post type for videos

In the settings of the post type, we have the Supports tab that provides some features to add to your post type. In this case, we will display the author’s information for this post, so I check the Author box here.

In the settings of the post type, choose some features of the Supports tab to add them to the post type.

Step 2: Create Custom Fields

Move to Meta Box > Custom Fields > Add New.

As I said at the beginning, I’ll create only one custom field to save the video’s links. Normally, we use the URL field to save links. But if you use it, Oxygen will only display the link as text on the frontend. Then, we must take a few more steps to convert the link into the video preview.

Instead, Meta Box has the oEmbed fields that allow you to save the link and display it as the video preview on the frontend. Thus, in this tutorial, we choose the oEmbed for more convenience.

Choose oEmbed fields that allow you to save the link and display it as the video preview on the frontend.

After creating the field, go to the Settings tab, set the Location as Post Type, and choose Video to apply the created field to this post type.

In the Settings tab, set the Location as the Video Post Type to apply the created field to this post type.

Then, in the Post Editor, you will see the newly created custom field.

In the Post Editor, you will see the created custom field.

Since I added the Author feature in the Supports tab, we will have the Author section to choose the post’s author like this.

As we added the Author feature in the Supports tab, we will have the Author section to choose the post’s author.

Let’s move on to the next steps.

Step 3: Create a Template with Oxygen

In Oxygen, create a new template and apply it to the wanted page. Then, edit the page with Oxygen.

First, set the preview as usual.

To get the title of the page automatically, add the Heading component, then click Insert Data > Post > Title to connect it with the title of the page.

Get the title of the video gallery page automatically

Then, add a Section component to display the video gallery.

Add a Section component to display the video gallery.

Inside the Section component, add a Repeater component and set a data source for it. Go to Query > Custom > Post Type and find the ID of the created post type.

Inside the Section component, add a Repeater component and set a data source for it.

Add the Video component inside the Repeater. You will see the default video preview from Oxygen. Now, we need to change the URL of this component to the one in the custom fields.

To get the wanted video preview, we need to change the URL in Dynamic tag.

Click the Data button. Then, in the Meta/Custom Field section, find the field’s ID that you saved the video’s link.

Get the wanted video preview step by step.

For other information about the video, such as the video’s title, description, and author, select the corresponding component as Text Link, Text, Image, etc. Then, use the Data tag in the same way to automatically get the data from the post.

After adding all the wanted components, you will see all the video’s information displayed like this.

After adding all the wanted components, you will see all the video’s information displayed.

For easy styling, you can add some div tags for each element or group them together and add classes for them.

After saving the template, you will see the video gallery on the page.

The video gallery on the page before styling.

Let’s style this page.

Step 4: Style the Page

Go back to the page editor with Oxygen.

Set the Preview Render of the Repeater to the Normal Mode to see all the posts.

Set the Preview Render of the Repeater to the Normal Mode to see all the posts.

You can change the layout of the gallery in the settings of the Repeater, or choose each component and change its settings.

Use some CSS codes to style the video gallery page.

If you want to style the page like the above, let’s use some CSS codes. All the code I’ve uploaded to Github, so you can refer to it.

.oxy-stock-content-styles p {display: -webkit-box;
    -webkit-line-clamp: 3;
    -webkit-box-orient: vertical;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;
}
.author-infor {display: flex;flex-direction: row;align-items: flex-start !important ;padding: 10px 0;}

.author-infor img {border-radius: 50%;}

.author-infor a {color: #000;font-weight: 700;text-align: left !important;}
.author-name {
    display: inline-block;
    width: 100%;
}
.date {

Go to the video gallery page on the frontend, you’ll see the new look.

The video gallery page have a new look after styling.
