Embedding with a URL

Embedding a Vine video is really simple and all you have to do is copy and paste its URL. If you’re on the mobile app, you can copy the URL by clicking the arrow at the bottom of a Vine post, and selecting the chain icon.

Once you have copied the URL, paste it on a line by itself in your WordPress post/page editor. You can view the video directly from editor! It will look something like this:

Alternatively, you can also access a Vine video from Twitter or Facebook, by clicking “View on Vine”:

Embedding with a Shortcode

If you’d like to specify a particular width and height for the video, you’ll want to add a shortcode to a post or page using one of the following formats. Be sure to replace the URL/video ID listed here with the one for your own video.

[vine url="https://vine.co/v/bEIHZpD2JWz"]

To change the width and height, for example to 300×300 pixels, you would use the following shortcode:

[vine url="https://vine.co/v/bEIHZpD2JWz" width=300 height=300]

Vine videos are always square and the minimum Vine embed size is 300×300 pixels. If both a height and width are defined, the Vine video will be displayed using the smaller of the two values.

If you don’t add either a height or width, the video will take up the default width allowed by your theme.

You can also set the video to be either postcard or simple type, by adding a type parameter to the shortcode.

Here’s an example of the postcard type:

[vine url="https://vine.co/v/bEIHZpD2JWz" type="postcard"]

Here’s an example of the simple type, which is also the default format if you don’t specify a type:

[vine url="https://vine.co/v/bEIHZpD2JWz" type="simple"]

Troubleshooting

  • Make sure the Vine link is not hyperlinked. If the URL is shown in your theme’s link color (as the second line in the screenshot below), then it is hyperlinked. Simply select the URL and click the “Remove” icon.
    remove-hyperlink
    Once the URL is unlinked, you will be able to see the video in the Visual editor.
  • Make sure to place the Vine URL or shortcode on its own line. This means there should be no character or whitespace before or after the URL/shortcode.
  • Make sure that the video has the appropriate privacy settings.
  • If the embed still isn’t working, make sure you also check our guide to troubleshoot embed links and shortcodes.
