Embedding assorted stuff in WordPress blogs

Converged communicators who have been looking for ways to embed a wide variety of information can find ways to do exactly that. You’ll want to read the WordPress tips on using shortcodes, strands of text that are copied from a source and pasted into a blog post for viewers to read. The text string required is usually very long, so you’ll want to use right-click to copy and paste rather than typing the code in manually.

Once you get the hang of using shortcodes, you can embed a staggering range of content types in your blogs. One example:

It’s a Google Maps look at the airport in Ouagadougou, capital of Burkina Faso. This could come in handy if you decide to fly out to Ouagadougou as part of the next photo challenge in Assembling Digital Media (DIG3286).
