How to Embed a Facebook Video in WordPress


Do you want to embed a Facebook video on your WordPress site? With the popularity of Facebook live and Facebook’s videos, we’ve had several of our users ask if it was possible to embed Facebook videos in WordPress. In this video, we will show you how to easily embed a Facebook video and a Facebook live video in WordPress.

To start, you will want to visit the Facebook Embedded Video and Live Video Player page found here:

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/embedded-video-player

Here you will add the URL of the video from Facebook you would like to display as well as set the pixel width you want the video to display at and it should display below. There’s even the option to include the full post in a checkbox under the URL of the video box.

Now that your selected video is set, click the get code button to bring up the required code. For a Facebook video to display on your site you will need to add the first code block to your theme’s header. If your theme does not have a built-in method, you can use the Insert Headers and Footers plugin found here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/insert-headers-and-footers/

With the above plugin, you would go under Settings, Insert Headers and Footers and add the code in the top box and click the Save button. This will automatically add the code in your site’s header for you. With that added you can add the second code from Facebook and it will embed the video the same as it would a YouTube video.

For a Facebook Live video, you will first need to go live due to Facebook’s limitations. That will allow you to right click on the date that you went live and copy the live video’s URL. Take that URL back to the Facebook Video Player Configurator to customize the display to how you’re wanting and click the Get Code button.

If you’ve already added the JavaScript to your header from another video or embed then you don’t need to add that for this new video. Add the second code block to your site where you want the live video to appear.

How to Easily Bulk Delete WordPress Posts on Your Site


Trying to delete multiple WordPress posts in bulk? WordPress has built-in tools to help manage multiple posts but selecting and deleting them can take some time. In this video, we’ll show you some of our recommended ways to handle bulk deleting posts in WordPress!

The first method will be using the built-in WordPress method in the Posts, All Posts page. You would want to check the box next to the post you are wanting to delete or click the check at the top of the list to select all of the posts. Using the screen options in the top right you can decide the number of posts to display on one page.

Use the dropdown at the top to select the bulk action, in this case, we will select delete to delete the images. To sort the posts so you have more control over what is selected, if you click the author’s name it will display all of the posts by that author while if you click a category it will show all of the posts in that specific category.

For our second method we will be using the “Bulk Delete” plugin:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/bulk-delete/

With the plugin installed and activated you will want to click on the Bulk WP menu option to see the plugin’s settings. This plugin allows you to decide posts by date range, post type, and even delete post revisions using the plugin.

How to Add an Image in the WordPress Sidebar Widget: 4 Simple Ways


Are you looking to add an image to your WordPress site in the sidebar? WordPress has methods to easily upload images including into widgets and we will walk you through few methods to add the image to your site. In this video, we will show you how to add an image in the WordPress sidebar widget.

For the first method, we will use the built-in image widget. You can set the title then click the add image button to have the choice of using an image from your media library or upload an entirely new image. You will even have the option to add a link to the image to point wherever you would like.

For a second method, you could use a text widget and click the add media button to add the image as you would with a page or post and have the option to add additional text to the widget that does not require it to be connected specifically to your image in the sidebar.

The third method is to use the Custom HTML widget. Start by going to your media library and copying the location of the image. Next, add the widget and include the img tag with the src and alt attributes. Add the location of the image for the src and a description of the image for the alt.

With the fourth method, we will be using an image widget plugin found here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/image-widget/

If you do not know how to install a plugin, take a look at our article:

http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/step-by-step-guide-to-install-a-wordpress-plugin-for-beginners/

Once activated it will add a new widget called Image Widget that you can add to your widget area. Click the Select Image button to upload or choose the image and be sure to insert the image to your sidebar using the Insert to Widget button. The plugin also allows a link, link title, link ID, alt text, image size, and a caption compared to the normal image widget.

As with all of the methods you would want to ensure you save the widget for it to appear on your site.
