Embed The Rest of the World: MangoPlugin idxEmbedly
Two weeks ago I found out about Embed.ly and learned more about it's using while testing the WordPress Plugin for NFN4Good members and their blogs. Of course, I wanted to have this available on my various MangoBlogs as well. Here is it the v1 of idxEmbedly Mango Plugin. Feel free to test, to augment and to share.
The Embed.ly API information is posted here: http://api.embed.ly
Embed.ly is the public version of ParrotFish powering the enhanced Twitter Layout.
How to use Embed.ly?
The Embedly plugin allows bloggers to embed videos, images and rich media from 73 sources with just the url. It uses the Embedly API to get the embed code and display it in a post.
Write your post as normal, putting the url to the content you want to embed on a single line like so:
Example Video Embed
Used Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc
Example Twitter Embed:
Example Vimeo Video:
Example embedding a show from NPR.org
Version 1.0 of idxEmbedly
v1.0 places the embed.ly js scipt between <head></head> tags of your MangoBlog pages. .
