[iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/dUpTjDqjQoo” width=”100%” height=”500″] shortcode
should show something like this:

WordPress removes iframe html tags because of security reasons.
Iframe shortcode is the replacement of the iframe html tag and accepts the same params as iframe html tag does.
You may use iframe shortcode to embed content from YouTube, Vimeo, Google Maps or from any external page.

If you need to embed content from YouTube, Vimeo, SlideShare, SoundCloud, Twitter via direct link, you may use [embed]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUpTjDqjQoo[/embed] shortcode.
[embed] shortcode is a core WordPress feature and can embed content from many resources via direct link.

Important: You can not embed HTTP pages into HTTPS pages and vice versa.
So the protocol (http or httpS) for parent and embedded page should match.

  • src – source of the iframe: [iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/dUpTjDqjQoo"]; by default src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/dUpTjDqjQoo”;

An easy to use plugin with fast and practical support from its developer. More frequently and providing options to generate the shortcode on the posting page could make it even better! Thanks so much!

Instructions are not clear, short code just take me to a YouTube video even when I place my own url. Not recommended!

this plugin has been consistently robust throughout its service on a few websites I have built. So i donate whenever I can and encourage others to support vitaly in maintaining this perfectly formed plugin, that allows us to offer a preview of other websites on ours, without wrting anything more complex than the simplest – and excellently documented – shortcode. THANK YOU VITALY! Gea Vox
