How to have "about" this video appear when video display


As is right now when viewing a video one has to click on about tap to see the description; How to have it appear without clicking on tap like on mobile site?

    this is code mod, very simple but for this kind of stuff you need basic html, otherwise pay someone. Sorry but people asking for basically free html mods are getting on my nerve.

    Am gonna help you since i already did

    the video part is on cc-content/themes/mobile-default/play.phtml (look at every file yourself and you will find all you need, that is the beauty of open source)

    this is what i left after <div class="tab-blocks">

    <!-- About -->
    <div class="about-container">
    <div class="block">
    <p><strong><?=Language::getText('duration')?>:</strong> <?=$video->duration?></p>
    <p><strong><?=Language::getText('views')?>:</strong> <?=$video->views?></p>
    <p><strong><?=Language::getText('by')?>:</strong> <?=$video->username?></p>
    <p><strong><?=Language::getText('description')?>:</strong> <?=$video->description?></p>

    <!-- Suggestions -->
    <div class="suggestions-container">
    <div class="block block-listview">
    <ul data-role="listview">
    <?php if (count($relatedVideos) > 0): ?>
    <?php $this->repeatingBlock('video.phtml', $relatedVideos); ?>
    <?php else: ?>
    <?php endif; ?>


    this will remove your taps, as shown on the example website above because thats how i wanted. So you get an idea. Again if you don't know html find someone.

    @ eric3000: If it gets on your nerves so much, then don't help anyone. Everyone has to start somewhere, and your attitude doesn't encourage people. Not everyone is good at stuff, we weren't born good at stuff, we learn by doing and being helped.
  • I'm looking for the same. I want the About tab on the full site to be automatically selected. I have tried Javascript, but nothing works. Can Damien help at all? I'm using the default theme.

    Very nice erick3000, I took the "about-container" code you wrote, added it just above the tabs and did an HTML comment hide for just the "About" tab and kept the other tabs. Looks awesome.
