This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Embed Posts


Embed a Post within another Post or Page. Use double brackets and the post’s Slug (ex. [[about-us]]) to embed.


  1. Upload embedposts to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place [[post-slug]] in posts or pages where post-slug is the Slug of the post you want to embed


Q. Why isn’t my post embedding?
A. Your theme might not be using the_content() to display the page (get_the_content will not work).

Q. Can I change how the title or post looks?
A. Yes! How the embedded post looks can be changed using the CSS classes post_title and embedded_post.

Q. Can I stop a post from embedding?
A. Yes! Use backticks before and after the double brackets to display the original text. For example, '[[about-us]]' will be displayed as [[about-us]] rather then rendering the embedded post. This can be useful to show users how to use the plugin.

  • The title of a embedded post can now be toggled. Set a custom meta field called embed-hide-title with a value of true in either the child embedded post or in the parent page or post. If you set the field in a child post, then the title will not be displayed on any parent page. If you set the field in a parent, then none of the embedded posts on the page will have titles.


  • Added backtick support to disable embedding a post. The original [[post-slug]] text will be displayed in a code element


  • Embedded Titles now use the h2 element. Use the css class post_title to override the style of each title.
  • All types of posted content are now searched for, including children of other posts.
