Media, Shortcodes

Videos »Flickr Video

Find a video on Flickr you would like to use on your blog. Copy the URL (or the video ID from the URL, which is the very last portion).

📌

Please make sure your flickr video is not “hidden from public searches”, or else it cannot be embedded.

Embedding with the URL

Copy and paste the URL for the video directly into the editor of your post or page.

We take care of the rest! You will be able to preview and play the video directly from the editor and it will show live on your published page or post for anyone to view.

Embedding with the Shortcode

You can also use shortcode to embed the video into a post or page. This will let you add additional options like specifying the height and width of the video. Embedding with a shortcode will not show the Flickr information overlaid on the video, the way that it will with the link embed option.

Here’s an example of  how to use the Flickr embed shortcode (do not include the space after the first bracket):

[ flickr video=http://www.flickr.com/photos/chaddles/2402990826]

or

[ flickr video=2402990826]

You can add a shortcode to any page or post using a Shortcode block.

Publish the post or page, and the video will appear on your site with a Play button.

Additional Options

To specify the width and height, add w=n (width) and h=n (height) to the shortcode. For example, [ flickr video=2402990826 w=200 h=150] will embed a video in 200 x 150 px. (Do not include the space after the first bracket.)
