  • At least tell people in the description they have to pay for a monthly subscription fee to use the plugin.

    Why hide the fact it’s paid one? I installed, tried to figure out why it doesn’t work only to find out it’s a paid thing in the settings.

    Bloody waste of time.

    Thank you.

    Description says “Iframely is powered by server API. API Key is required. Get one at”.

    The service may or may not require a subscription, depending on your use, as described on our site. Plus, there are no limits in the first 30 days upon signup for a key.

    Also, the plugin will actually work out-of-the box, with default configuration, and even without API key configured (although you won’t be able to save other settings without a key).

    Additionally, you can also self-host the server APIs as described in this support thread.

    Therefore, the reason it didn’t work for you is likely one of this:
    – Iframely will work only with the new posts out-of-the box. We don’t drop the WordPress cache for older posts upon install (and neither does WordPress by default until after you edit/save a post). See this thread.
    – Or Iframely simply couldn’t generate an embed code for your test URL (we require at least an image for general sites to create a summary card. Check how our parsers see your pages at

    We answer every support request to Usually within 30 mins during business hours. Connecting multiple systems might require patience. With over at least 1900 different systems Iframely connects your WP to – it is worth the effort.
