Embed Content from Social Networking Sites

Another special effect to consider is embedding social media content: public Facebook posts or Twitter tweets. This can be a way of quoting from famous social media feeds, or displaying a testimonial about your club that originally appeared on social media. Or it could be an image originally shared on Instagram.

The procedure is the essentially the same as for embedding a video:

  • Use one of the blocks provided for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other services. Paste in the web address and click Embed.
  • Paste the web address of the social media post on a blank line, and WordPress will infer that you’re trying to embed that content.
