Want to embed TikTok videos on your WordPress website?
As one of the newer social media platforms in recent years, you might be wondering if you can embed TikTok videos on your WordPress website? The good news is yes, and there’s a few different ways you can do it, so finding one to suit your site should be easy.
In this quick news post, we’ll show you a few different methods to display TikTok posts in WordPress. Before this, let’s give you a quick overview of the platform.
What is TikTok?
TikTok is only five years old, so it’s understandable that not everyone has heard of it yet, but it’s growing fast, so being able to embed it on your site is sure to come in handy.
Display TikTok Posts on Your WordPress site (2 different methods)
The first method is to embed TikToks using WordPress’ native functionality.
1. Use WordPress’ Native Embedding Functionality
This method is by far the easiest way to embed a TikTok video on your WordPress site. All you need to do is copy and paste the URL into your WordPress post or page.
First, you need to copy the URL of the TikTok video you want to embed by visiting it in your browser.
Then, you should edit the post or page where you want to display your TikTok video. On the edit screen for the post, paste the URL in the content area.
After you’ve pasted the link to the TikTok video, WordPress should automatically load a preview of it in the editor. Now all you have to do is to save your post/page and visit it to see your TikTok video in action.
2. Use WordPress’ TikTok Block
You can also accomplish the same thing by using the TikTok block. On the post edit screen, click on the (+) to add a new block and then search for ‘TikTok.’
Next, insert the block in post editor and then paste the TikTok video URL into the block settings. WordPress will automatically load a preview of the video.
There are other methods to embed a TikTok video on to your WordPress website such as using a dedicated plugin such as WP TikTok Feed which allows you to use shortcodes to add a feed to your site, but that’s a little beyond the scope of this article.
We hope this short blog post helped you learn how to embed TikTok videos in your WordPress website.
