Iframely Responsive Embeds

Iframely converts URLs in your posts into responsive embed widgets for over 2000 domains and summary cards for others.

Oh, the Facebook!

Yes, Iframely knows the embed codes for Facebook posts, photos and videos. However, some of the posts can be private and not accesssible to our parsers. For those, we can not convert the URL into embed code. Also, Facebook events don't have native embed codes and so Iframely doesn't support these too.

I thought Iframely would wrap my URL into iframe?

That's not a purpose of the plugin. Iframely works with original URLs and will detect the frame's src itself. If you just want to use <iframe>, switch your editor to HTML format and past iframe code in there.

How do I resize my widgets?

Well, that's the point of responsive embeds. You don't have to.

Iframely widgets will take 100% available width. If you need to limit it, just define your CSS styles for iframely-widget-container.

Please, note that not all the embeds codes will be responsive. Some of hosting domains can not be converted responsively. In those cases, Iframely will left-align the embeds. You might want to consider padding and alignment styles, if you don't have generic ones for iframes and images yet.

Is it compatible with other embeds plugins I have?

  • Iframely works in the same WordPress embeds framework as other plugins would.
  • Since default WordPress embeds are not responsive, Iframely can disable the standard code and replaces it with the responsive embeds. Otherwise, you might be wondering why is some widgets are not responsive
  • You can conifugure Iframely to only work in its own shortcode, thus leaving other plugins intact.

What about embeds in my previous posts?

Iframely works in native WordPress embeds framework. All your new posts should start seeing responsive widgets. The older posts will be re-cached via WordPress logic itself (usually when you edit and save the post), and should granually get the new embeds code too. However, we do not interfere into this default process and do not re-cache older posts upon install.

If there's a specific post you'd like to update, just go to Edit and Save it again. It should re-cache it and trigger Iframely.

Will my other shortcodes work?

Iframely does not change behavior of other shortcode plugins. Everything should work the old way, except for [embed] shortcode, which will now start producing responsive widgets unless limited in size.

Does it support WordPress MU?

Iframely will work well with multisite installations. Iframely options page is available for super admins only, and the settings will be the same for all blogs on your WPMU setup.
