    • Hello TrevH2,

      Thanks for the question about adding a 30 second video to open your website. Basically, you would be creating a landing page either with code and then re-directing your back to your WordPress site, or by using a plugin like WordPress Landing Pages. You could use the plugin to add a video landing page that would display before (or above) the login screen based on the template you obtain.

      I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

      Regards,
      Arnel C.
