oEmbed styling

This plugins wraps oEmbed generated HTML with divs that allow for styling them with CSS (style sheet of the theme).

Support for oEmbed, which was added to WordPress in version 2.9, is very nice. Unfortunately the generated oEmbed code is not easy to be centered in the text, which is a common request. This plug-in allows for centering (or even other styling), although it will not solve it by itself, just makes it possible.

This plugin wraps all oEmbed code into div tags with several classes set:

  • oembed
  • oembed-mediatype (e.g. oembed-video)
  • oembed-server (e.g. oembed-youtube-com)
  • oembed-mediatype-server (e.g. oembed-video-youtube-com)

Then you can specify in your theme CSS (in the file style.css) the way you want the embeds to behave. E.g. by adding the following code to style.css:

.oembed {
  text-align: center;

you will make all oembeds (videos and pictures) to be centered; anyway, if you understand CSS, you are not limited by centering, but you can add much more (like frames around pictures etc.)
