Embedding Instagram posts is an easy way to add Instagram photos and videos to the stories
Embedding Instagram posts is an easy way to add Instagram photos and videos to the stories you want to tell on articles or websites. You can embed your own content as well as photos and videos from public profiles. As always, people own their Instagram content, and embedded posts give the proper attribution by showing the username and linking back to the original content on Instagram.
Embedded posts are responsive and automatically resize if the embedding container becomes smaller. This means that the content will look great both on desktop and mobile websites.
WordPress makes it even easier to embed Instagram content on your blog. All you have to do is to copy the Instagram URL of the media page and paste it on its own line in the WordPress editor. For example:
You can also use the Wordpress shortcode which allows you to remove the caption or manually specify the width. Just paste this in your blog post as an example:
[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/bNd86MSFv6/ hidecaption=true width=320]
