WordPress supports oEmbed to add videos, polls, quizzes, slide shows, and other media to posts and pages. oEmbed allows you to insert this content by pasting the URL inside a post or page. WordPress provides a list of services that use the oEmbed format. This article explains how to embed media in posts or pages.
We do not support uploading videos. Services such as YouTube and Vimeo will provide a better experience for you and your readers.
Shortcodes for embedding media are not supported.
Iframe tags are only supported on Premier Managed Platform sites.
Script tags are disabled for security reasons.
Before you start
- Find or upload media on a service that supports oEmbed.
- Copy the media's URL from your browser address bar:
- Open a post or page to edit.
- Paste the URL into the visual editor. The URL must be on a separate line from all other content:
- Update the post or page.
