I just saw this feature on the newest version of WordPress so I thought I would share in case anyone missed it. It’s a great new feature that works with many urls and sources around the web. Check out the official WordPress page about embeds.

On this old, old blog the content area’s width is very narrow so when I initially put in the link to the twitter post I got a larger then expected response that overflowed to the right sidebar. It wasn’t what I wanted but no problem as there’s a shortcode to fix this. Try out [embed width=”100″ height=”100″] … [/embed;] when you need to change up the snippet.

Google just launched their new service called Drive. There’s a million articles around the web about it so if you want to find out the details search it up. I was thinking of giving it a go with my files, as you all know I currently use Dropbox, but I started to hear and read about the terms of service. “Worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create, … such content”. Ouch! And if I quit using the service? Ouch again!
I think I’ll be keeping Dropbox but it’ll be fun to try out Google Drive. If you decide to sign up with Dropbox then get some free extra space (for you and me) with my link.
