Better shortcodes. Embed HTML into your blog's posts, pages, titles, comments, and widgets with this powerful, easy-to-use plugin.

If you are looking for an easier way to create and manage embedded HTML and shortcodes then this is it. Embedder allows you to create as many HTML embeds as you like without writing a single line of PHP code (though if you need to do it, Embedder allows you to do that too).

Create local HTML embeds for blog post simply by adding one or more custom fields. Any custom field name enclosed in square brackets [] will be recognized as an embed when used in the post.

For example, you can quickly create your own tag language for posts (and comments) by adding custom fields like [b], [i], [quote], [link], etc.

And embed YouTube videos, Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter buttons, and much more in a matter of a few seconds.

Embed attributes makes it easy to add much more flexibility to your embeds. For example, to highlight any text in your posts (and comments), just add the following custom field:

    Name: [color]
    Value: <span style="color:%col%">%content%</style>

Then, in your posts, you can use the embed like this:

    The quick [color col="brown"]brown[color] fox 
    jumps over the [color col="yellow"]lazy dog[/color].

The %col% attribute is replaced by the value you set, and the special %content% attribute is replaced by the text between the open and close embed tags.

If you want to use your embeds in all your posts, or use them in your sidebar widgets, you can create global HTML embeds using the Manage Embeds settings page, and take advantage of the following advanced features:

  • Use embed attributes to increase the flexibility of your embedded HTML.
  • Nested embeds (including a workaround to WordPress's nested shortcode problems)
  • Set default values for your attributes.
  • Use embeds in titles and comments too.
  • Auto-embed HTML at the top and bottom of blog posts and pages.
  • Include or exclude auto-embeds from posts/pages based on tags, categories, or parent pages.
  • Wrap your embeds in a div or span to modify an embed's position or appearance.
  • Call out to a user-specified PHP function to generate the embed's HTML for you.
  • Use global embeds in sidebar widgets too, including widget titles.
  • Embed groups -- group your global embeds to keep them organized
  • Import and export embeds. Share your embeds with others, or make backups for safekeeping.
  • Support for embedding all unicode characters (e.g. Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew, etc).
  • Wrap embeds with individual CSS styles.
  • NEW!! Ajaxified Embedder Manager makes managing your embeds much easier and faster.
  • NEW!! Powerful new Embedder parser that solves WordPress shortcode problems.
