Guide to Creating Custom Templates

Version 2.0

The HTML for Feeds for YouTube can be customized using a setting and PHP files added to the active theme’s folder. Please note that using custom templates may require maintenance when updating the plugin and may limit the amount of support Smash Balloon can offer.

To enable the use of custom templates, navigate to your WordPress dashboard > Feed for YouTube > Settings > Advanced tab > Enable “Custom Templates”, then save the changes. 

Next, create a new folder in the current active theme’s directory with the name “sby”.

In the new folder, add templates files to customize. You do not need to add any files that you do not want to customize.

Copy and paste the contents of the existing templates found in the YouTube Feed’s plugin’s folder under the templates/ directory. Make edits as you would like. Please note that removing existing content may result in certain features of the plugin not working.
