Whew! That is a long title. I felt that I needed to get all those words in there because this issue put me in a pickle this morning.
So how do you embed Articles and Ideabooks from houzz.com in you self-hosted WordPress site? Unfortunately WordPress does not allow you to do this without a plugin (if you are on a WordPress.com blog they have added support). The plugin that I used on my TheMastersHouse.net site is EmbedIt Pro by SuperThemes.
The EmbedIt Pro plugin allows you to enter the embed text separately in a custom post type and then creates a short code to use in your post or page. The cool thing about using this plugin for this is that you can use the same embed code on multiple posts and/or pages or on your sidebar.
Here are a couple of examples of this plugin. The first is the article that sent me on my quest. It is about Stair Runners.
This is my “Back Yard Ideas” IdeaBook.
