Facebook and Instragram Embeds

Embedding Before October 24th, 2020

Before the October 24th, 2020, all you need to do to embed Facebook and Instagram on your site was to put a URL into post content. Thanks to the oEmbed protocol, WordPress could load content from Facebook/Instagram without any other requirements.

Embedding After October 24th, 2020

After the October 24th, 2020, you have to send an access token with every oEmbed request to Facebook/Instagram (read more). Refer to the next section to create an app for Facebook and provide creds so we can generate the token for you and allow embedding.
