Formerly WP Embed Facebook. Automatically embed any content from Facebook directly into your site just by copying the URL into the editor, using shortcodes or the new embed block.

Replace the WordPress comments system with Facebook comments on selected post types or manually using a shortcode.

Use simple shortcodes to invoke like, send, share, save buttons or any other Facebook Social Plugin.

There are two types of embeds: Custom Embeds that are entirely native to this plugin and Social Plugins which are pieces of code created by Facebook developers.

All custom embeds examples

All social plugins examples

As an alternative to automatically embed your content, you can use the [embedfb url] shortcode instead and pass on some parameters to change each embed examples.

You can also use the built-in WordPress [embed] shortcode .

Facebook Social Plugins

Shortcode variations

[fb_plugin like]
[fb_plugin send]
[fb_plugin share]
[fb_plugin save]
[fb_plugin comments]
[fb_plugin quote]
[fb_plugin page href=]
[fb_plugin post href=]
[fb_plugin video href=]
[fb_plugin group href=]
[fb_plugin comment href=]

Change the default attributes for each plugin on settings or individually using shortcode attributes, see the list of all available attributes using the “help” attribute like this: [fb_plugin like help=1]

For example: To embed a complete Facebook fan page with the latest post, events, and chat; use the shortcode like this:

[fb_plugin page href= tabs=timeline,events,messages ] 

To only show events use tabs=events. For posts use “timeline” and for chat use “messages”.

Embed a share button for your main fan page

[fb_plugin share href= layout=button_count ]

Remove the “href” attribute to share the current page even if its invoked from a widget.

Find all possible attributes on the plugin settings “Social Plugins” section. See live examples here.

Custom Embeds

Set up the use of custom embeds when possible automatically on settings, or change the type of embed individually using the main shortcode.

For example: To embed an album, individual photo, post or fan page from Facebook use the shortcode like this:

[embedfb href= social_plugin=false ] 

Set the number of photos on embedded albums using the “photos” attribute

[embedfb href= photos=200 ]

Select between different styles of embeds using the theme attribute

[embedfb href= social_plugin=false theme=classic ] 

Available themes are “default”, “classic” and “elegant”. Look on the FAQ on how to fully personalize your embeds.
