With the Kickstarter Embed block, you can embed Kickstarter projects into your posts and pages. You don’t need a Kickstarter account to be able to embed projects.
Embedded Kickstarter Project:
Steps to Embed Kickstarter Projects:
- Find the Project you want to embed on Kickstarter.com, and click “Share this project”
- Click the “Embed” link to copy the URL
- Find the “Project short link” and copy the URL
- Add a Kickstarter Embed Block to your post/page
- Paste the Kickstarter Project link from step 3
- Click 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.
Besides the Mover and Drag & Drop Handle, the Block Toolbar for the Kickstarter embed shows four buttons:
- Transform to
- Change alignment
- Edit URL, and
- More Options.
You can transform a Kickstarter embed to a Group. This would give you the ability to change the background and text color around the Kickstarter embed.
Change Alignment – use reusable Block
- Align left – Make the Kickstarter embed post-left-aligned.
- Align center – Make the Kickstarter embed post alignment centered.
- Align right – Make the Kickstarter embed post-align-right.
- Wide width – Increase the width of the Kickstarter embed post beyond the content size.
- Full width – extend the Kickstarter embed post to cover the full width of the screen.
“Wide width” and “Full width” alignment need to be enabled by the Theme of your site.
Via the edit URL, you can change the Kickstarter embed URL in the embed block. To overwrite the existing URL and click on the “Embed” button.
These controls give you the option to copy, duplicate, and edit your block as HTML.
Via the Media Settings, you can control the behavior of your post embed when viewed from a smaller device, like on a phone screen.
The Toggle switch turns on or off the resize functionality for smaller devices. The default setting is “on” or blue.
“Off:” This embed may not preserve its aspect ratio when the browser is resized. In the off position, the toggle switch is gray.
“On:” This embed will preserve its aspect ratio when the browser is resized. The toggle switch turns blue in the “On” position.
The advanced tab lets you add a CSS class to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and style the block as you see fit.
