Those of you that know me, know I’m a big fan of WordPress. All of my personal sites run on WordPress, both the Greece Historical Society and Friends of the Aurora Public Library sites which I manage run on WordPress, and Nebraska Libraries on the Web which I’m in charge of runs on WordPress. Ok, I live and breathe WordPress. So, if you do too, you probably know that you can easily embed external content from sites like YouTube and Flickr just by pasting the item’s URL on its own line. But did you know that you can also do this with sites like Instagram, Twitter, SlideShare and TED? No? Well now you do. And, if you’re interested in a complete list you can find it on the Embeds page in the WordPress Codex.
