WordPress Update (4.4) Provides Greater Embed Support

Posted on 12.08.2015

WordPress announced version 4.4 (Clifford) this week and introduced a new feature that will enable administrative users to embed their posts on other WordPress sites. 

WordPress users will now be able to drop in a post URL into the editor and see an instant embed preview that includes title, excerpt and a featured image if one has been set. Site icons and links for comments and sharing will also be included.

In addition to post embeds, which is pretty awesome in itself, version 4.4 also offers support for five new embed providers including Cloudup, Reddit Comments, ReverbNation, Speaker Deck and VideoPress.

The Clifford update also introduces a new default theme (Twenty Sixteen) that features a modern take on the classic blog design, and offers a new take on responsive images.
