WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Embedding Social Media

This document will walk you through the process of embedding social media feeds into a text area of your website. There are two options for this: to embed using the 'Embed Content' page element or to paste the embed or iframe code into the source view of a Text Block.

Option 1: Embed Content Page Element

The Embed Content page element will allow you to paste a URL into the designated field. This will pull in social media content like a Twitter feed or a YouTube video. 
  1. Navigate to the page you would like to add the content to. 
  2. Click on the blue "Add Page Element" button and choose "Embed Content."
  3. In the "Enter URL" field, paste in the URL for the content you would like to share. 
  4. If it is working, your content will populate in the large space below the URL. If not, please try adding into the source view of a text block (see below). 

Option 2: Paste Code into Source View of Text Block

Another option for embedding content is to paste it into the source view or "Text" tab of the Text Block. 
  1. Navigate to the page you would like to add the content to.
  2. If you don't already have a text block on that page that you can add this code to, click on the blue "Add Page Element" button and choose "Text Block."
  3. Switch from the Visual tab to the Text tab (top right corner of the text editor box).
  4. Locate the place where you would like this content to appear and paste in the entire <embed> or <iframe> code chunk.
