It’s pretty easy to embed YouTube videos or tweets in WordPress. Just paste the URL to the content on a new line and you automagically get a preview of the embed. We wondered why this doesn’t also work with WordPress blogs and created this little plugin here. This plugin makes WordPress an oEmbed provider, which means you can easily embed your blog posts somewhere else. Even on your own website! The beautiful embeds contain a short summary of the post and (if available) also its featured image. Everything is easily extensible. You can completely change the look and feel of the embedded content. Note: We are working on bringing this functionality to WordPress core at one point. See WordPress Core ticket #32522 for more details. Get Involved We hold weekly chats about this plugin in the #feature-oembed WordPress Slack channel. Read the announcement post for more information.
