Fliptu: Embed beautiful media feeds

Description

Due to the fact that our service is renamed, we created the new plugin. It has
a lot of new features, you can download it
here. This plugin is no longer
maintained.

Embed your social media feeds, hash tag feeds, or personal media collections on your WordPress blog using Fliptu’s export & embed tool. First, sign in to your Fliptu account or create an account Fliptu.com.

(1) Social Media Feeds – upon sign up at Fliptu.com, you will be prompted to connect your social media accounts. You will then be re-directed to your ‘Flipstream’ page (profile). Click on the ‘Export Flipstream’ button and customize your embed. Copy the ‘iframe’ code that is generated in the text box in the plugin Admin (see Installation section).

Example Social Media Feed Aggregation – Rally America Social Page

(2) Hashtag Collections – after sign-up, you can create Flipbooks (collections) by visiting the ‘Flipbooks’ tab. Click on ‘Create Flipbook’, select ‘Import Based on Hashtag’,and enter your desired hashtag. Fliptu then imports Twitter & Instagram media based on your hashtag (takes a few minutes). To export, hover over your Flipbook, Click ‘View Flipbook’, and then click on the ‘Export Flipbook’ button and customize your embed. Copy the ‘iframe’ code that is generated in the text box in the plugin Admin (see Installation section).

Example hashtag collection – #UFC157

(3) Manual Collections – you may also create manual collections of media, using the same Flipbook instructions above (without selecting the hashtag option). To export, hover over your Flipbook, Click ‘View Flipbook’, and then click on the ‘Export Flipbook’ button and customize your embed. Copy the ‘iframe’ code that is generated in the plugin Admin (see Installation section).

Example manual collection – Miami Music Week ’13

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

You can create a new page for your embed or set your embed to appear on your home page.

  1. Locate & click on the ‘Fliptu Social Media Streams’ link in the left column of your Admin screen
  2. Click on the ‘Create New Embed Page’ button
  3. The default tab is ‘Page Settings.’ To add an embed to a new page, enter the desired ‘Page Name’ and paste the embed code you created on Fliptu into the text box. The plugin will automatically create the new page & display your embed.
  4. The alternate tab is ‘Home Settings.’ To add an embed to your blog’s home page, paste the embed code you created on Fliptu into the text box. Then, insert short code [FLIPTU_HOME EMBED=’HOME’] on your home post or page.

Note: for most WordPress themes’ Full Width PAge, the ideal maximum width for your embeds is 900px. This will accommodate a 3-column embed. See Silicon Beach LA for a real world example.

Create Embed With Widget

  1. Go to the Appearance -> widget screen, drag the Fliptu widget to a sidebar, and fill out the necessary fields and options. It is recommended that you only create embeds in single column format for inclusion in the sidebar.
