Embed Links Not On OEmbed List (4 posts)

    This is a great plugin. I am currently using embedly (please let me know if there is a better plugin to allow embedded images) to embed images from non-oembed sites and was wondering if there was a way to get URLs that are not on the oembed list to embed in the comments?

    I just tested this in a fresh WordPress install and it works as expected, any Embedly sites I have activated automatically work in comments as well.

    When you say "non-oembed sites" I assume you're talking about sites that aren't in WordPress' oEmbed list, but are in Embedly's. If you mean sites that actually have no oEmbed support at all, then that's a much harder problem. In short, if a site doesn't have its own oEmbed support you either (1) can't oEmbed it or (2) have to make your own.

    It might be helpful if you could give an example of a site you're trying to use, but can't.

    Imgur is one that doesn't seem to embed. I am not sure if they support oEmbed. I did have to disable Embedly for the time being until I can figure out how to get it to work on a multiisite.

    I just tried an imgur link and it works for me. It also happens to be on multisite, but it's unlikely that multisite would affect this plugin.
