#AceSocialDesk – says here are some useful helpful hints on Embeds on your blogs enjoy fellow readers and bloggers and thanks for visiting need any help just ask …..

Embedding content using the Embed block.

Since WordPress 5.0, the WordPress block editor has an easy way to add videos, images, tweets, audio, and other content from third-party services into your WordPress site by embedding. An example of this is embedding a YouTube video in your post or page.

When you are embedding content, you don’t need to upload the content to your WordPress site. You are creating a link to the content, from within your post or page.

Using the generic Embed Block, you can paste the URL from the third-party site that you want to embed the content such as YouTube, Vimeo, TED, etc on your post or page. 

You can also use Embed blocks build for specific third-party services such as YouTube Embed, Vimeo Embed, etc. 

For a full list of embeds, check out the article: list of all embed blocks.

  • Facebook and Instagram: Due to Facebook’s decision to close the oEmbed end point for embedding Facebook and Instagram links, the block will not work anymore after October 24, 2020. To embed Facebook and Instagram links into your site, you need a developer account and an appid, and provide an authentication token with their call to the endpoint. Refer to the Facebook Documentation.
