I have just discovered a WordPress plugin for the Embed.ly service. What the service does is it allows to paste content via url into WordPress and renders it perfectly for your readers. Similar to what we all do on Facebook all the time. Have a look at a few examples below.
Using Embed.ly with Github
I have recently made use of a walker class in order to integrate the Twitter Bootstrap Navbar into a WordPress Theme. The class I used was provided by Edward McIntyre aka Twittem. I could now simply link to this class , or I could use the Embed.ly service like so:
As expected the Embed.ly result looks much more appealing. Let’s try another service.
How about embedding some code from Pastebin:
Or a Vice “Article”
And a Ted Video
As you can see it is a quite handy service, that allows you to quickly embed rich content into your website. And best of all: It’s free. So, get started with Embed.ly for WordPress and add interesting content with the click of a button.
By the way, if you don’t have a WordPress site yet, I offer a WordPress Installation Service over at Microlancer for just $20 and much more. Have a look and get in touch!
