🤔 ABOUT THIS VIDEO 👇
WordPress supports embedding external content such as Facebook videos, Instagram photos, YouTube videos, etc from the URL.
Facebook deprecates legacy oEmbed API on 2020 October 24
The legacy API WordPress used to fetch embed contents did not require any credentials such as an access token to function, which made it possible to embed Facebook and Instagram content without any additional configuration.
Facebook is to deprecate the legacy oEmbed API on 2020 October 24.
The new self-plug WordPress plugin oEmbed Plus brings back the support for Facebook and Instagram oEmbed using Facebook’s new API endpoints.
Once installed, this plugin needs to know a Facebook App access token to function. You can set the API key and secret in Admin Dashboard → Settings → Writing.
With a Facebook acccount and logged into it, head to Facebook Developer Apps list to create a new app. Click “Add a New App”, and select “For Everything Else” for the use of it.
You will need to enter a name for the app and an email. The app name can be any name. Name and email will not be shown in the WordPress front end at all.
Add oEmbed to the app. Once the app is created, you need to enable oEmbed feature for the app.
From the “Products” list, add oEmbed by clicking “Set Up”.
Enter additional App details
In order to complete and retrieve API keys, the app needs to be live and complete.
Switch App to Live mode
Using the toggle on the top of the page that says “In Development”, you can now switch the app to live mode.
You will be asked to enter additional details if anything is missing.
Get App ID and Secret and enter in plugin settings
To retrieve the App ID and Secret key, go to Settings → Basic in the Facebook app. You will see the App ID and Secret, which you can enter in the WordPress oEmbed Plus settings.
That’s it. Your existing embedded content will continue to work (as they are stored as rendered HTML content). New Facebook and Instagram content will use the new authenticated API.

🤔 ABOUT CODEREVOLUTION TV 😃
Hello, I’m Szabi, a 32 years old guy living with my wife and our beautiful 4 year old daughter Maya. I started my journey in WordPress plugin development back in 2017, when I quit my programmer job and became a full time stay at home WordPress plugin developer, entrepreneur, blogger and also daddy. Since then, I implemented over 100 WordPress plugins, earning my full time income from them.
I started this YouTube channel to share tutorials for my plugins with people who are using them, however, since then, the channel has evolved into a daily VLOG, besides of tutorials for my plugins, I am sharing here also my insights about how to be a successful entrepreneur in our current times.
I really enjoy finding problems and solving them using creative and easy to use solutions to make life easier, this will reflect also in this YouTube channel!
