Embed Social Media sites using WordPress

Embed Social Media sites using WordPress. I just discovered a little wordpress feature that I was unaware of that you’ll like. Really easy too. To embed social media sites using WordPress, you can often just paste the link into the editor on whatever page you want it on.

To insert an instagram post just go to that instagram image page and copy the page link: https://instagram.com/p/5QhpP9yqed/?taken-by=ilstr8r

Then put the link in the editor (but just paste it, don’t tell wordpress to make it a link) . You’ll see it update in the editor immediately if you are using the visual editor.

Here’s the Instagram page:
