Wordpress Integration

Wordpress allows you to create and manage websites and blogs with ease. By integrating Webdam and Wordpress, you can use your latest Webdam assets in your Wordpress 6 environment. 

By making use of the Webdam reference URLs and our automatic CloudFront invalidation process, the integration ensures that when you update your assets in Webdam, the latest version is also automatically reflected on your Wordpress website. The integration uses custom Webdam blocks for single images and video assets. The Gallery Block is used to showcase multiple image or video assets, and Featured Image is used to showcase a primary image. For those customers with Dynamic Asset Transformation (DAT), the latest Universal Compact View with the DAT-UI is available. 

Available Versions

There are two versions available for the Wordpress plugin. Both versions have an open source version available, which you can customize to your own needs.

  • Version 5.2.0 or later
    This version supports Wordpress 5.9 or later, tested up to Wordpress version 6.0.2. This plugin version is actively being maintained.
  • Version 5.0.0
    This version supports Wordpress 5.8 or lower. This version won't receive updates as Wordpress only officially supports Wordpress 6.0 and later.
