Applications offering iframe inclusion of multimedia content for WordPressMost of the applications tested and presented in the project allow embedding the created content into a WordPress page (or post).
Technical backgroundMost web-based applications to create multimedia-based content offer a specific embed option. They provide the code that is necessary to insert the iframe into the WordPress page. We show a typical example taken from CANVA. When you have created your content in CANVA, you select the share button. From the menu list, you select the “embed” feature. You get several options to select from. The next paragraph shows the directives that are inserted. You can easily detect the iframe command. The iframe is surrounded by a box with specific settings to create a “floating box”.
<div style=”position: relative; width: 100%; height: 0; padding-top: 56.2500%; padding-bottom: 0; box-shadow: 0 2px 8px 0 rgba(63,69,81,0.16); margin-top: 1.6em; margin-bottom: 0.9em; overflow: hidden; border-radius: 8px; will-change: transform;”> <iframe loading=”lazy” style=”position: absolute; width: 100%; height: 100%; top: 0; left: 0; border: none; padding: 0;margin: 0;” src=”https://www.canva.com/design/DAE_jbelWb0/view?embed” allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen” allow=”fullscreen”> </iframe> </div>You do not have to understand the content and the HTML description given in the text. The only task is to go to the position in the text, where you want to insert the content, and switch from visual to text, insert the text there, and switch back to the visual editor.
