How To Embed TikTok Videos On WordPress

Franklin WordPress Tutorials Aug 16, 2020

TikTok is a social platform based on Videos, that is gaining more and more attention. Indeed, the latter made its appearance in 2018. It is an application that is primarily aimed at young people, but it still remains in tune with the times. The goal is simple: each user can create and post of short videos of all types: dance videos, humorous videos, cover songs, etc.

At present, it is a platform that has a very large audience since it has not less than 500 million active users every month that you can easily find. As such, it is a practical tool that you can use with WordPress, in particular by integrating your Tiktok publications into your WordPress content. But how to do it?

This can be done mainly in two ways: by configuring manually, or by using WordPress plugins.

How To Integrate TikTok With No Plugin

This method is considered to be the easiest way to embed any TikTok video on your WordPress site. Simply copy and paste the URL into your post or onto your WordPress page.

First, you need to copy the URL of the TikTok video you want to embed by visiting it in your browser.

Next, you need to edit the post or page where you want to display the TikTok video. On the post edit screen, simply paste the URL in the content area.

As soon as you paste the TikTok link, WordPress will automatically load a preview of it in the post editor. You can now save your post or page and visit it to see your TikTok video in action.

You can also accomplish the same thing by using the TikTok block. On the post edit screen, click on the (+) to add a new block and then search for ‘TikTok.

Next, insert the block in post editor and then paste the TikTok video URL into the block settings. WordPress will automatically load a preview of the video.

You can also insert TikTok videos into your WordPress site’s sidebar by using WordPress widgets.

Simply go to the Appearance » Widgets page and add the ‘Text’ widget into your sidebar.

After that, go ahead and paste the TikTok video URL into the text area. WordPress will now automatically display a preview of the TikTok video in the widget area.

Don’t forget to click on the Save button to store your widget settings.

While this method allows you to easily embed TikTok videos in WordPress, it doesn’t automatically display your latest TikTok videos. For that, you’ll need a plugin.
