I don’t know yet how or if I’ll use this feature, but it feels like something that will be very useful once I figure out what it means to me.
Look at that GIF up above. That’s a post graduating from the dashboard and living wherever it wants. Like: inside a blog post elsewhere on the internet. Or: on a content-driven site for social news and entertainment. Totally up to you.
Wherever you put it, it behaves the way a post should. It’s likeable, rebloggable, has its tags, is properly credited, all that.
How to do it: From your dashboard, just copy the embed code from a post’s share menu, then paste it anywhere embed codes can go. Enjoy.
