Embed Wikimedia


The Embed Wikimedia plugin adds support for embedding photos from Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and Wikidata.

It requires no configuration, and to use you just add a URL of any of the above sites on its own line in a WordPress post or page.


Install in the usual way.
