Iframely Responsive Embeds

    We've tried
    [iframely]url
    [iframely="url"]
    and a bunch of other variants though none seem to work. What is the basic usage?

    The usage instructions are mentioned there, perhaps not that explicitly though.

    Basically, the usage is the same as for default WP embeds:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

    You either put a http link on its own line(easiest),
    or wrap it into [embed] shortcode (width and height in shortcode is not required as Iframely doesn't use it - the embeds are responsive).

    For example:

    Check out this cool video:
    
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ
    
    That was a cool video.

    Ok. Thanks. I guess I was hoping for an iframe embed for a site that looks like it really isn't supported; subdomains on wetransfer.com

    Yes, we could not add wetransfer unfortunately, as it seems to be download only. Iframely is about embedding the actual content, like images, videos, etc. We'll monitor and add support if they make actual content accessible in any way.

    But in any case, I see most of their download links expire in 28 days. Perhaps, not the best to put these into blog posts.

    Donno, this plugin never worked for me, on anything at all.

    Doesn't work for me, either, unfortunately. Was just looking for something to embed Google+ posts.

    Not all Google + URLs can be embedded. Here is the restriction by Google:

    The link to the Google+ post must be in its canonical format:
    https://plus.google.com/110174288943220639247/posts/cfjDgZ7zK8o

    https://developers.google.com/+/web/embedded-post/

    Here's an example of the embed:
    http://iframely.com/debug?uri=https://plus.google.com/106601272932768187104/posts/iezWej2wQmw

    But, this plugin won't automatically make basic default YouTube (or other sites) <iframe> codes work? They have to be inserted into the post as only the URL or as [embed]?

    Iframely plugin works the same way the native WP oEmbeds work. The plugin does not change the behaviour of the Editor in any way.

    This means that the plugin simply does not know when you enter <iframe> in the editor. We only get WP triggers when there is a URL on a separate line or [embed] shortcode.

    To enter the embed/html code yourself, I believe, you can just switch to HTML view as an admin and paste it in there.

    Is it possible to embed a mailchimp newsletter (from the archive) with this plugin? As in, we actually see the newsletter (not a link to it) on the webpage.

    Thanks for your excellent work!

    Sorry, no MailChimp newsletters support at the moment.
