Imgur Embed

Go back to the list of Blocks

Using the Imgur Embed block you can include an Imgur post into your post/page, so your visitor can stay on your site to view the Imgur post directly, without redirecting to Imgur. Also note that you don’t need an Imgur account to embed an image, GIF or video, although it needs to be public.

Steps to embed an Imgur post in your post or page:

  1. Head over the Imgur URL of the post you want to embed and copy the URL of the post from the browser bar.

2. Add an Imgur Embed block to your post 

Detailed instructions on adding blocks can be found here.

3. Paste the Imgur URL from Step 1 in the text box

4. Click on the “Embed” Button

If it’s a link that can be successfully embedded you will see a preview in your editor.

If you use a URL that can’t be embedded, the block shows the message “Sorry, this content could not be embedded.” You will have two choices: Try again with a different URL or convert to link.

5. Click on “Preview” to see how it will look on the front end of your page
