post_embed_url filter

Filters the URL to embed a specific post.

 apply_filters( 'post_embed_url', string $embed_url, WP_Post $post ) 



This hook is used for filter the URL to embed a specific post. By using it we can fitters the embed URL for a specific post.


  • $embed_url : (string) The post embed URL.
  • $post : (WP_Post) The corresponding post object.

Live Example

To run the hook, copy the example below.

$embed_url = apply_filters( 'post_embed_url', $embed_url, $post ); 
if ( !empty( $embed_url ) ) { 
   // everything has led up to this point... 

The following example is for adding a hook callback.

// define the post_embed_url callback 
function filter_post_embed_url( $embed_url, $post ) { 
// make filter magic happen here... 
return $embed_url; 

// add the filter 
add_filter( 'post_embed_url', 'filter_post_embed_url', 10, 2 ); 

To remove a hook callback, use the example below.

// remove the filter 
remove_filter( 'post_embed_url', 'filter_post_embed_url', 10, 2 );
