The WordPress Flickr embed block lets you add photos and videos that you’ve saved to Flickr to your WordPress posts and pages. When a visitor clicks the photo or video, they’ll be directed to Flickr, where they can view and/or play your media. Videos can’t actually play on your website – the visitor will see a still image, and when they click it to go to Flickr, they’ll be able to play it there.
You’re also able to embed albums and galleries that have navigation arrows. (Albums are collections of your own media, while galleries are photos and videos you save from other photographers.) That way, visitors can see all of the media you want to show them without being redirected to Flickr.
In this article, we’re going to show you how to add Flickr media to your WordPress posts and pages, plus cover best practices, tips and FAQs.
