How to embed an Instagram story into your website or blog

How to embed an Instagram into your website 📱

You have just made a great Instagram story what happens next? If like me you don’t want your story to go to waste, keep reading.

Using Snappd you can easily repurpose your content either in an article or to share across social media. In this post I will cover 3 simple ways to embed a Instagram story onto a website.

The first step is to upload your story into Snappd, there are two ways to do this. You can either use our StoriesWidget service which will automatically upload your stories each day. Or you can save your Instagram story to your phone and upload via the Snappd app.

If you use the StoriesWidget you can also display your stories using the widget itself which can be styled in a number of ways (we also offer free installation support to help you get the display you want).

To embed a story you first need the story’s Snappd link. To get this, you must upload your story to the Snappd app (or for StoriesWidget users look for the link in your dashboard) and play it, then tap the share icon (bottom right in picture one below) and copy the link. Alternatively, you can share the story to yourself via AirDrop or social media to get the link.

Tap Share Icon Share Snappd Story

Embed Options


To embed your story on WordPress simply install and activate the Embedly plugin then paste the link to a story from Snappd such as into your post in a new paragraph and hit enter.

Your story will then take a moment to load and then appear within your post.


Embedding on Medium is similar to WordPress in that all you need to do is have a Snappd link to your story (such as ) pasted into a new paragraph and then press enter.

After a moment your story will then appear within your post.


For this method you need to have access to edit the code of your post/article or website.

Visit the link to your story again for example and click on the Embed button at the top of the page.

The code needed to embed your story will then be shown, now just copy and paste this into your editor and save.
