Description

Abigail Torres, from Hunter's Center from Online Learning, noticed that Padlet embeds are not working. According to Padlet's documentation - https://padlet.com/support/embedding_wordpress - it should automatically embed using the url. I tried and it is not. I tried activating JetPack and I tried using Gutenberg editor - but it is not working.

Here is the url Abigail is trying to embed.

Hunter uses Padlet a lot and would like a way to embed content into the Commons.

According to Padlet's documentation - https://padlet.com/support/embedding_wordpress - it should automatically embed using the url. I tried and it is not. I tried activating JetPack and I tried using Gutenberg editor - but it is not working.

It looks like embed support via URL is built into WordPress.com only and not for self-hosted WordPress installs like ours.

For the regular embed code, Padlet's embed code uses an <iframe> tag, which we disallow for security reasons.

Like the Sutori ticket (#11038), it would be possible to write a shortcode plugin to enable this functionality. If Gutenberg is enabled, a Gutenberg block plugin would need to be written.

I have added Voicethread support as an embed shortcode. (Reference - https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/023719f22e63e19e09b28eff865c74472dbda538)

I chose to implement this as a shortcode because Voicethread requires an embed key that is not displayed in the URL.

The shortcode is as follows:

[padlet key="XXX" height="800"]

height is optional.

To get the key, you'll need to visit the Padlet URL and find the embed key. You can do this by viewing the attached GIF:


In the Classic Editor, simply put the shortcode in the editor.

In Gutenberg, there is a Shortcode block you'll have to use to paste the shortcode. View the attached GIF to find out how to use the Shortcode block:

This will be deployed next Tuesday afternoon.
