Wordpress is a great blogging platform. It’s easy to make posts and revisions, or to customize your theme. There’s a smorgasbord of plugins at your fingertips. To that smorgasbord, we have now added our own Wistia plugin!
In the past, our solution at Wistia was to provide an oEmbed link and a Wordpress plugin to enable it. This worked well enough for a while, but it’s ultimately an imperfect solution. Our feeling at Wistia is that, if you need to use a plugin, then why shouldn’t any Wistia embed code work flawlessly?
To get the Wistia Wordpress Plugin, go into the Plugins section of the Wordpress admin panel, click “Add New,” and search for “Wistia.” You should get a result for “Wistia WordPress oEmbed Plugin” or “Wistia Wordpress Plugin” — we’re trying to get the name changed. Click Install Automatically, activate it, and you’re done! Now any embed code generated from Wistia’s SuperEmbed Builder should work flawlessly in your Wordpress posts. Paste it when you’re in HTML mode, then feel free to switch editing modes. The embed code might change slightly, but it should still work just fine!
