Social Media Embed

Most social media feeds can be embedded into a WordPress page. To do this, search for the appropriate embed block and click on it to begin the process. When searching for a block, there is a dropdown menu labeled “Embed” that holds social media feeds and other types of feeds as well.

Note: At this time, only individual Facebook and Instagram posts are able to be embedded, not entire feeds.

Once you click on the block you want, enter the URL of what you want to embed. You can embed specific posts or entire feeds depending on the URL you post.

The block can also be aligned left, center, or right. The alignment options are located in the upper-left corner of the block.

There is now also a specific Twitter block called “Latest Tweets.” By inputting the specified Twitter handle in the inspector on the right, the latest four tweets from that handle will appear on the front-end of the page.
