Quick Start – Global Embeds

To embed the same snippet of HTML in more than one place in your blog, you need to create a global embed:

  1. Go to the Manage Embeds settings page at Settings >> Embeds.
  2. Click the Add New Embed button at the top of the page.
  3. On the Add Embed page, enter the name of your embed (note: you do not need to use square brackets).
  4. Optionally, enter a short description to remind you later of what the embed does.
  5. Now enter (or paste) the HTML you want to embed into the Value field.
  6. At this point, your settings page should look something like this:
  7. Ignore the other options for now and click the Add Embed button at the bottom of the page to save your embed. It will appear in the Default group on the main embed settings page.

Now all you have to do is use the embed in a post, page, or widget. You can also use the embed in their titles too:

Of course, there is a lot more you can do with embeds than covering your blog with smiley faces 🙂
