Wordpress Embeds Feature

A drastic change is had been rolled out by Facebook and Instagram is set to affect the content embedded on most of the WordPress site.

For the specific, this launched API update will no longer have support for unauthorized content embed on WordPress from Facebook and Instagram.

Now from October 24, embed Content only be supported for publishers with the developer Facebook account and also should be registered with the Facebook app.

All the Facebook and Instagram embed content on WordPress site of the unauthorized publishers will soon be broken. This will certainly affect millions of site owners.

But the new requirement of Facebook for embed content is not a viable option for all types of publishers. However, just creating a Facebook developer account by registering in the Facebook app is not a reliable solution for this problem.

So what is the solution for the publishers who want to embeds the content from Facebook and Instagram on their WordPress site?

Let's talk about the things that are changing and How can publishers prepare for it.


oEmbed Endpoint Changes


The previous oEmbed Endpoint for embedded content had already been disapproved on October 24,2020

oEmbed Endpoint designed by Facebook to allow publishers to embed content on web pages.

It allowed the publishers to have basic HTML code and meta tags for several pages and post or any video content in a way to show them on other web pages.

The support for this endpoint is no longer available in Facebook API. In response to Facebook dropping support, WordPress is removing Facebook and Instagram as oEmbed Source.

How does this affect Publishers?


The decision from all these sides Facebook, Instagram, and WordPress will make all the content broken.

If you have the embed content on your WordPress site from Facebook and Instagram then that content is going to be broken for sure.

The new set of rules is obvious to follow by all publishers in order to have solutions.

Requirements :
