Facebook Embeds

This guide explains how you can embed Facebook posts onto your site.

Unlike the Facebook Page Plugin Widget, which displays a Facebook page’s feed in your sidebar or footer, Facebook embeds allow you to display any individual update, photo, or video from a public Facebook timeline on your site, complete with:

Embedding with a URL

First locate the Facebook update you want to embed. Make sure the timeline and update are both publicly visible. Then click the timestamp.

Where to click on a Facebook post to find its URL

You’ll be taken to the page for that individual update. Copy the URL in the address bar.

Next, in your blog’s post editor, paste the URL directly onto a new line or add it to the Facebook block.

Embedding with a Shortcode

You can also use a special shortcode to embed Facebook updates, photos, or videos.

To use this method, copy and paste the following shortcode into a paragraph block or text widget, replacing the Facebook URL with the one that you want to embed.

[facebook url=""]
