I would like to add a link in my navigation bar that points me to a blank page, that means no widgeds or anything at all, just a blank page, background doesn't matter. The reason for this is that I would like to post video's on there of fight we've been to, that I uploaded to youtube. But what happens now is that he wants to put the video in the center next to my widgeds and goes off-screen if you know what i mean
Hi Doubledamage, yes this is possible. First I'd like to point out that you can change the size of your videos so they do not overlap your widgets. After you insert the youtube link, click on the yellow square and just drag it to the size you want.
Here is how our 'blank page' looks, I have filled in background and added some things but I made it from a blank page. We call it The Raid Page and we post videos there. To do this, you work from your control panel and create a page under News & Media. In your case name it Videos or something that suits you, then save it as a Post Collection and publish it. Now you can go to Site Configuration and Navigation, also on the Control panel. Just click on 'Add Custom Link' at that top, then name it, and fill in the link which will be /the name you gave your blank page. Now submit and you are good to go.
mmm When i click on the link I stil see a navagation pane, the widgets, and everything on the sides, I know i can scale it so it fits in between, but I want to use the entire page for my videos, so with black page I mean nothing on it or at least as least as possible (if that is een english phrase)
If you follow my instructions for making a blank page and it will have what you need. I have added privledges for you so there should be no reason why you can't click on 'Blank Page' in blue letters above and see it.
When I clik on your link, I come to a photo, there is no video and I do not see your website anymore. But when I go to The Mythic Delegates it appears you have solved the issue by removing the widges from the side of your page.

Np Double, that is because I gave that page those attributes. But if you follow my instructions , you will have a blank page you can fill with your videos.
Go to the Control panel and create a page under News & Media.
In your case name it Videos or something that suits you, then save it as a Post Collection and publish it.
Now you can go to Site Configuration and Navigation, also on the Control panel.
Click on 'Add Custom Link' at that top, then name it, and fill in the link of the page you just made. You see the link at the top of the page when you create it. it will be / the name you gave your blank page.
sorry Brighttree but I think you don't understand what I am try to make, after creating a page just like you said and like I usually do, I still see my navigation to the left side of the page I created and widgeds on the left and right side of my screen. what i mean with a blank page is a page (the entire page that fill my screen to be blank, Nothing in it, ar at least nothing to the left and right side of the 'page' so my video's can be show bigger then just that smal page that we otherwise create. If there is another way to make it so that my video's can play in full screen without going to youtube first by all means that will be good to, in de windows player I tried selecting full screen under advanced when you ad a youtube clip, but that di not work
I understand what you mean now Double. There is no way to make any page look different than the others. As shankill suggests above, you can change the look of any page, but all pages made will follow the same format. So you can have an empty page with no widges , but then your home page will not have widgets either.

If by opening in fullscreen mode you mean that when you click on a link your whole screen will be filled with the video in a new window, no I do not know how that would work. I'll leave the question open in case shankill knows of a way to do code that.
