WP Release Notes (1.10)

The NYU Web Publishing 1.10 release focused on iFrame functionality in addition to plugin and theme maintenance.

 iFrame embeds

This release included code to allow content creators to copy and paste embed codes from around the web for use in Web Publishing.  Until now, content creators needed to use the iframe plugin and manually edit embed codes to match WordPress shortcodes. In an effort to improve user experience, it is now possible to copy and paste an iframe embed code from another location into your Web Publishing content. Sites that allow you to embed their content usually have a code snippet wrapped in <iframe>...</iframe> tags.  Simply paste this into the WordPress text editor.

 For example:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xcJtL7QggTI" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>">
