    div.emd-container .widget_custom_html figure.panel-body .video-img-caption { font-size: 9px; }
    div.emd-container .widget_custom_html{display:none} </style>

How to customize the shortcode

The shortcode we used above displays top 10 videos matching "front" tag and removes pagination support. If you use only


shortcode, there will be pagination support where users will be browse the next set of videos with each click.

How to customize the look

We used font-size:9px for the video caption in the code above. You can increase or decrease this value based on your need.
