What is the Embed Widget
Have you visited a webpage or blog and noticed social media content embedded on the page? If yes, you're already familiar with the concept behind EveryoneSocial's Embed Widget.
In a couple of clicks, the Embed Widget creates the HTML code (iframe) you'll need to embed a post from EveryoneSocial in a website you own or manage. HTML doesn't sound easy, but we've made it copy-paste simple. In addition, the Embed Widget does not share any private information about users of the platform.
When someone sees the Embed Widget on your webpage, they’ll see the post’s content, links, and images. Readers will also see the number of engagements and comments but can not see who made the interactions or what the comments read.
Here’s an example of what you’ll see once the Embed Widget is added to your site.
What you'll need
- Shareable post to copy the widget code. Click here to learn how to create a shareable post.
- Access to your website's editor to paste the widget code (iframe).
Copy Embed Widget Code
Copy the embed code directly from a published shareable post.
- Select the post you want to embed
- Click the three dots menu
- Select “Copy Post Embed Code”
- Click Copy Code.
Paste widget code into your website
Paste the copied code into your site's editor on pages you want the Embed Widget to display. It's that simple!
You will need to know how to add the Embed Widget code into the editor; if that sounds complicated, please provide your website administrator with the Embed Widget code you copied so they can add the code (iframe) for you.
🔷 Note: Most websites support embedding external content using iframes, but instructions vary depending on the web editor used to manage the website. If you’re looking for the best location to paste your widget code (iframe), please connect with your website’s support team. They’ll be able to point you to the best location.
Here’s an example of steps to take when adding a Facebook Feed widget to a Hubspot Landing Page.
What happens if someone tries to interact with an embedded post and they are not a user?
Embedded posts act the same as a post you will see on the Public Post Page. You’ll be able to see the share copy and media. When you click the Share or Engage buttons, you’ll be taken to the Public Post Page where you’ll be able to interact as a registered or unregistered user. Registered users can comment, like, share, and see who engaged with the post. Unregistered users can see tallies for like, comments, and shares and can see the Share buttons.

What happens if I embed the widget but the post is unavailable, removed, or deleted?
An alert will display if your embedded post is no longer available but the code remains on the site. Here’s an example of what readers would see.
I can see options to engage with an embedded post. What happens when someone takes action to comment, like, or share a post?
Great question! When someone engages with your post, they are taken to the post on EveryoneSocial where their actions will be made.
