Social Post Embed


A temporary plugin solution to add embedding of various social media platform posts, until such time that they become of WordPress Core. At this moment this plugin will support embedding of Threads and Spoutible posts.

Using the plugin is incredibly simple. Once it’s installed and activated…

  • Head to your social media conversation and click on the option to copy a link to it (or just grab the URL from the browser)
  • You should be able to paste that link straight into a post and it will appear as an embed

There are no additional parameters that you can specify, and the embed appears as specified by their originating sites.

Iconography is courtesy of the very talented Shawon.

Please visit the Github page for the latest code development, planned enhancements and known issues

Please Note:
This plugin makes use of external scripts, to provide the embedding, all of which are provided by the originating website (rather than a third-party solution). These are…

  • Threads (part of Meta). Their privacy policy can be found here.
  • Spoutible. The Privacy Policy is here.


Social Post Embed can be found and installed via the Plugin menu within WordPress administration (Plugins -> Add New). Alternatively, it can be downloaded from and installed manually…

  1. Upload the entire social-post-embed folder to your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ menu in WordPress administration.

It’s now ready to go and there are no settings.


Which social networks does this plugin support?

At the moment Threads and Spoutible.

I’ve checked the following and either they have no embedding capability or it’s not possible to create an embed from a post link…

  • Bluesky
  • Cohost
  • Discord
  • Gab
  • LinkedIn
  • MeWe
  • Next Door
  • Pocket
  • Quora
  • Stackoverflow
  • Weare8

And, if you’re not already, WordPress natively supports…

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • Reddit
  • TikTok
  • Tumblr
  • Twitter / X
  • Vimeo
  • YouTube

Will you add a new social network to this plugin?

Yes. If it’s not listed above, please let me know and I’ll take a look at it.

Threads embeds are not appearing

A number of plugins which make use of JavaScript appear to conflict with Meta’s code. Known plugins so far include Query Monitor and Tada.

I use semantic versioning, with the first release being 1.0.
