How to Embed Instagram posts to WordPress manually

Spread the love

Instagram also gives you the option to embed photos manually. If pasting the URL isn’t working or you want a bit of extra control (you can choose to hide the description), this is an alternative option.

Again you’ll need to find your photo, but to embed you’ll need to use instagram.com – you can’t use the app. As before, navigate to the full-page photo with the unique URL.

Now, instead of copying the URL, click on the ellipsis (…) on the bottom right and click Embed.

Copy your Instagram embed code.

Instagram will now give you embed code which you can copy. If you want to hide the caption, untick the Include caption box.

You can now embed the photo to any post or page. As before, either add a new post or page, or edit a pre-existing one. You now want to switch to the Text editor and find where you want to add the photo. Hit return twice to add space for the photo and paste the embed code.

Instagram generates a lot of code, but switch back to the Visual editor and you’ll see the photo added. If there’s a grey space where you’re expecting to see a photo, don’t worry – the photo will display on the front-end of your site.

Publish or update the post or page, and you’ve got an Instagram photo added!
