- Embed in widgets using the Widget Logic plugin
- Global embedding allows you set up some code in one post or page and then access it from another
- Modify the keywords or identifiers used for embedding the code to your own choice
- Search for embedding code via a simple search option
- Add a simple suffix to the embed code to convert videos to responsive output
- Embed an external script directly using just the URL
- Fully internationalized ready for translations. If you would like to add a translation to his plugin then please contact me.
Here's how easy it is...
- Once you have the plugin installed start a new post or page.
- In the
Custom Fieldsmeta box enter a name of CODE1 and your embed code as the value. Save this.
- In your post add
%CODE1%where you wish the embed code to appear.
And that's it - when the post or page is viewed
%CODE1% will be replaced with the code that you asked to be embedded.
Although this plugin works for both posts and pages for simplicity I will simply refer to posts - bear in mind that pages work in the same way.
Responsive Output Conversion
Responsive output is where an element on a web page dynamically resizes depending upon the current available size. Most video embeds, for instance, will be a fixed size. This is fine if your website is also of a fixed size, however if you have a responsive site then this is not suitable.
Artiss Code Embed provides a simple suffix that can be added to an embed code and will convert the output to being responsive. This works best with videos.
To use, when adding the embed code onto the page, simply add
_RES to the end, before the final identifier. For example,
_RES should not be added to the custom fields definition.
This will now output the embedded code full width, but a width that is dynamic and will resize when required.
If you don't wish the output to be full width you can specify a maximum width by adding an additonal
_x on the end, where
x is the required width in pixels. For example,
%CODE1_RES_500% this will output
CODE1 as responsive but with a maximum width of 500 pixels.
It should be noted that this is an experimental addition and will not work in all circumstances.

Frequently Asked Questions
My code doesn't work
If your code contains the characters
]]> then you'll find that it doesn't - WordPress modifies this itself.
What's the maximum size of the embed code that I can save in a custom field?
WordPress stores the custom field contents in a MySQL table using the
longtext format. This can hold over 4 billion characters.
Which version of PHP does this plugin work with?
It has been tested and been found valid from PHP 4 upwards.
Please note, however, that the minimum for WordPress is now PHP 5.2.4. Even though this plugin supports a lower version, I am not coding specifically to achieve this - therefore this minimum may change in the future.
