Embedding Content into WordPress Sites
Embed rich content from YouTube, Twitter, and much more directly into your WordPress site.
Why is it so hard to embed content?
If you’ve ever tried to insert a video, audio clip, document, or tweet in a post or page on your website you may have ended up giving up in frustration.
WordPress provides a set of functionality called shortcodes that allow you to embed content directly into posts and pages.
The advantages of using shortcodes for content embedding include:
- No coding knowledge needed to include your content.
- Brings your posts and pages alive with video, audio, tweets, and more.
- Keeps visitors on your site rather than them having to leave your site to see other media.
