Embedder

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

If I put two embeds right next to each other in a post (e.g. [myvid][mylink]) the second embed doesn't work. Why not?

By default, the plugin uses the WordPress shortcode feature to do the embedding, and there is a long-standing bug in the shortcode parser where it skips past the first character after the end of a embed tag, so it misses the second embed completely.

To fix this problem, simply select the option to use the new Embedder parser at the top of the Settings >> Embeds administration page.

Using an embed nested inside the another instance of the same embed didn't work as I expected. What happened?

By default, the plugin relies on WordPress's shortcode parser to find the start and end tags of embeds, but the parser fails when you put one copy of an embed inside another with the same name. This is a well known WordPress limitation.

To fix this problem, simply select the option to use the new Embedder parser at the top of the Settings >> Embeds administration page.

What are the minimum versions of software the plugin has been tested with?

  • WordPress 2.5 is the known minimum required (will definitely not work with older versions of WordPress)
  • WordPress 3.0.1 is the minimum version the plugin has been tested on
  • PHP5 5.2.6 (will probably work with earlier versions of PHP4 and PHP5)
  • MYSQL 5.0.5 (will probably work with earlier versions of MYSQL 4.0 and 5.0)
