Embedding a Podcast Episode on Your WordPress Site :
Podcasting has exploded in popularity in recent years, with millions of people tuning in to their favorite podcasts each day. Just like WordPress websites, podcasts cover a seemingly endless number of topics.
Embedding a podcast episode on your WordPress site can give your audience a new way to engage with your own content, or allow you to recommend quality podcasts to your readers. Here’s how to do it:
Choose the podcast episode you want to embed: First things first. You’ll need to choose the podcast episode you want to embed. Most podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts, allow you to embed episodes on your website. Find the link that is specifically associated with the individual episode you want to embed.
Copy the embed code: Once you’ve found the episode you want to embed, look for the embed code. To get this code, you’ll often need to click on a button near the share button. Sometimes the embed code pops up as an option after you’ve clicked the share button. Once you’ve located it, copy the code to your clipboard.
Paste the embed code into your WordPress site: To embed the podcast episode on your WordPress site, open the post or page where you want to add the episode. If you’re using the block editor, create a new block and choose the “Embed” block format, then paste in the code. (In some cases, you will need to use the “Custom HTML” block format instead.)
If you’re using the classic editor, switch to the “text” or “HTML” editor and paste the embed code into the editor. You can then switch back to the “visual” editor to preview the episode on your site.

It’s not just for lip-syncing teens anymore! With millions of people of all demographics creating and sharing short-form videos on the platform, TikTok has taken the world by storm. Embedding a TikTok video on your WordPress site will add a taste of this popular social media app to your site.
Here’s how to do it:
Choose the TikTok video you want to embed:
To embed a TikTok video on your WordPress site, you’ll first need to find the video you want to embed. You can do this by visiting the video’s page on TikTok.
If you’re using the block editor:
Click on the “Share” button.
Next, find the video’s link and click the “Copy Link” button to copy the code to your clipboard.
Head back to your WordPress website.
Create a new block and choose the “TikTok” block format.
Paste the link into the block.
If you’re using the classic WordPress editor:
Click on the “Share” button of the TikTok video.
Click on the “Embed” option from the sharing options. This will give you the embed code you need to add the video to your WordPress site.
Copy the embed code to your clipboard.
Paste the embed code into your WordPress site where you want the video to appear.
