Embedding Storify in a Post or Page

Someone asked how to do this. I got Storify confused with another app that allows simple embeds. So here is what I came up with.

Here are the directions. There are two ways really. The super easy way and the other way.

The Super easy way.

  1. Log in to your Storify account.
  2. Create and Publish your story.
  3. Click the title of the story open it.
  4. Select the URL of your story front the browser bar.
  5. Open WordPress.com.
  6. Create a new post.
  7. Write a one sentence introduction. Make the sentence a link using the link you copied.

The Other Way

  1. Log in to your Storify account.
  2. Create and Publish your story.
  3. Click the title of the story open it.
  4. Copy the URL. You’ll use this later.
  5. In the upper right corner of the screen there are three little dots next to the Template button.
  6. Click on the dots.
  7. Select “Export” from the menu.
  8. On the Export screen select PDF on the left side of the window.
  9. The PDF will open in its own window.
  10. Right click or Command Click on the Mac and select Save As from the menu. Save it wherever you want.
  11. Double click the file where you saved it. It will open in Preview.
  12. In Preview select File/Export. Select PNG from the drop down at the bottom of the window.
  13. Open WordPress and create anew post.
  14. Elect Add Media at the top of the Edit window.
  15. Upload the PNG of your Storify. Add the URL of your Storify story to the image link box at the bottom of the window on the right..
  16. Use the Insert button at the bottom of the screen to add you story.
