Support » Plugin: Disable Embeds » Please Disable Self-Domain Embeds

  • Resolved Jeff Starr


    Hey thanks for this plugin, I use it on all of my sites.

    I have a request, please disable self-domain embeds. Currently they are not disabled. For example, if your site domain is, and within any post or page you include a link such as:

    The result (with your plugin active) will be this output HTML:

    <blockquote class="wp-embedded-content" data-secret="eCcoDo7d81"><p><a href="">1</a></p></blockquote>
    <iframe title="“1” — Example" class="wp-embedded-content" sandbox="allow-scripts" security="restricted" style="position: absolute; clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);" src="" data-secret="eCcoDo7d81" width="600" height="338" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Please add a way to stop this from happening if possible. Also if it helps, I’ve been using this plugin for a long time and never have noticed any self-domain embeds happening anywhere. Then suddenly I am noticing them on latest WP version 5.2.2.

    Thanks again for this essential plugin, I hope you can provide a solution.

    Hi there

    I cannot reproduce this. The plugin actually disables self-embeds. You might have run into a situation where the embed code was already cached by WordPress.

    Please try again by creating two new posts, and then past the URL of post 1 in the content of post 2. You should get an error saying “Sorry, this content could not be embedded.”

    If that doesn’t happen for you, there is something else going on on your site and I’d suggest opening an issue on GitHub so we can further debug this.

    This issue is not resolved, please give me some time to reproduce the issue and report back. Sorry I do not use Github, will keep discussion posted here at Thanks.

    Nevermind. The issue seems to have resolved itself since my original post a month ago. Sorry for wasting your time.
