Adding content like social media links to a blog post or article is called “embedding” it. It’s a great way to feature content like YouTube videos or Instagram posts, from you or from others. If you want to embed something in WordPress here is how to do it.
First, create a new paragraph in WordPress by pressing “enter” on your keyboard. You want to then hover over the space and look for a black box with a white cross to appear. Click it to search:
Next, decide what you want to embed in your WordPress post: a YouTube link, an Instagram link or something else. You can search for a variety of options (see image above).
This is what it looks like when you choose an Instagram link, for example:
You would then go to Instagram and copy the URL for the post you want to embed. You would then bring it back to WordPress and paste the URL into the embed (again, there is an example image above).
That is how to embed social media links and more on WordPress!
