Embedding Content

    Hello helpful friends!

    I am still relatively new to WordPress (2 months), and I am running into some issues when it comes to embedding different pieces of content into my pages and posts. If you can offer help on any of the following, please let me know!

    First, I’m wondering if there’s any way to embed an entire live (able to be clicked around in, etc.) webpage into one of my pages or posts?

    Next, how would I go about embedding some HTML or iframe code, such as a stopwatch widget?

    And lastly (for now), how can I embed searches from twitter (like this one, for example: https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/new/search?query=%23grumpycat) into a page?

    Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is itsspencerbrown.com.

    No you cannot do that.

    We cannot use iframes on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. The software strips the code out.

    You cannot embed any dynamic script as the software will strip it out to preserve security on this multiuser blogging platform. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    Okay, thanks for the info!

    Is there any possible way to embed the live feed at this link into a page?

    I know some people have used gigya to embed usually non-usable items, would this work?

    It depends entirely on the code, but you can give it a shot.
