Do you need a SIMPLE plugin for incorporating any HTML code (including Youtube, Metacafe, Ustream.tv html embed code) into your WordPress posts? WordPress 3 compatible?
How many times have you been feeling frustrated because the WordPress built in WYSIWYG editor would destroy your HTML code, no matter what you do?
This light and easy wordpress plugin will solve your problem.
The Current situation as of the year 2017: [Since 7 years,] WordPress handles directly all video embeds just pasting the URL in the content editing window.
Excellent! This makes these plugins no longer useful.
Back in the days it could be really helpful to embed some HTML in a separate window.
This plugin takes advantage of WordPress custom fields. If you haven’t heard about them, you’ll soon understand what we’re talking about. Just have a look to your wordpress post editing page, under “trackback”.
WHAT IT DOES: WHY DO I NEED IT?
EmbedIt is simple plugin that allows you to embed any html code in a post, deciding precisely where to embed it, allowing you freedom of coding your html without being annoyed by the wysiwyg editor. It will save you a lot of time, a quick solution for many occasions. No messing around, and compatible with any html embeddable service. And of course, you can write your own html code, without having the hassle of dealing with the WordPress WISYWYG editor.
USAGE: While editing a post, create a custom field with key HTML1 and paste the code you want to embed into the Value field. Then just write [HTML1] in your post where you want to embed the html code. (Just use the standard wysiwyg post content editing window, no need to switch to Code view).
A QUICK EXAMPLE TO GET STARTED ON HOW TO EMBED VIDEOS OR WHATEVER HTML I WANT INTO MY POST
There you go.
Let’s say that you want to embed an youtube video into your post.
- Install and activate the plugin. You may know how to do this.
- On the Youtube video page, copy the HTML code of the video.
- Now in the WordPress post editing window, place your cursor where you want your video to appear and just type
- Create a custom field using key HTML1
and paste the HTML code that you’ve copied from Youtube in the Value field on the right.
Here is what things will look like.
Do not forget to click Add Custom Field.
Have a look at the post: exactly where you wrote [HTML1] the video appears.
Here is our result! Have a look at this funny video post
CAN I HAVE MORE? SURE!
If you need, you can use up to nine times the trick: just use the “tags” [HTML2] …. to [HTML9]… in order to embed up to nine html different snippets per post, placing each snippet in a different custom field called HTML2 … to HTML9.
You can also “print” the same html snippet more than one time calling the [HTML1] tag more than one time. No problem with it.
This plugin can come real handy when using wordpress as a CMS. Your clients will no longer destroy their embeds when editing pages and posts!
