Embedding prezis into third party sites

With the help of HTML code, you can embed a prezi into a blog or social media site.

For detailed instructions on how to get this code, you can go to this Knowledge Base article.

Unfortunately, different service providers support the embedding of HTML code in different ways. Below is a list of some ways that you can embed prezis into popular third party sites. These were all tested by me or someone I trust, so I know that they work. If I have not included a particular provider, it does not mean that a prezi cannot be embedded with that service, it just means I have not been able to test it yet.

IMPORTANT: Whenever embedding a prezi, make sure the prezi is set to public, otherwise it will NOT work.

1) Social Media Sites Facebook
We embed prezis into our Facebook pages (it’s not yet possible to put one into a timeline) using an app called: Static HTML: iframe tabs. You can search for it through the Facebook search bar. It looks like this:

LinkedIn You can embed a prezi into your LinkedIn profile as long as you are a paying user and have the new look. Look for the rectangle/plus icon, click it and add the URL to your prezi. It looks like this.

2) Blogging Services  
Embedding a prezi works just like any other normal HTML code. When in editor mode, select the cog shaped icon (‘Insert Code Block’) and then paste the HTML code for your prezi into the window that appears. Select ‘Save and Close’ and your prezi should then be embedded into your blogpost.

Wordpress If you download Wordpress, it requires a plugin (that can be found at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/iframe/) before it is possible to embed a prezi into a blogpost.
If you are using the online version of the service, it is not yet possible to embed prezis because Wordpress does not support iFrames.

More sites will follow as I test them out.

What about Wikis?

Here’s a tricky work around to embed iframes in wiki articles http://www.mwusers.com/forums/showthr…

Will this work for Wikia.com Wikis? I made an attempt following the instructions but failed miserably.

As far as we know, Wiki doesn’t support iFrame, so the workaround/hack is very tricky and not supported. We haven’t tested it ourselves, if and when we do, I’ll make a post on how to do it. Until then, the best suggestion i can make is to experiment and search for solutions.

Many thanks for the help. :slight_smile:

When you talk about wordpress, you mention ‘the online version’ - what does this mean?


To the best of my knowledge (because I don’t use either) there is an online cloud-based version of Wordpress as well as a downloadable application.

Hey David,

I just paid for a year subscription yesterday and am finding that this is a great presentation tool for our company. I have embedded the Prezi I wish to use on our site, my question is this. Is there a way to Embed it as to where when it is clicked on the Presentation will begin instead of having to click each slide? I have about 12 audio clips, one for each of the paths I have made. When I do it in presentation mode it gives me the option for it play automatically but not when I embed it. Do you know of a way around this?

Hi David
I would like to embed the Prezi on my company website but it does not support iframes. Has any workaround been tested yet?

Yes, I am in the same situation. After I’ve embedded it on my website, the user presses the big button in the center “Start Prezi”, but it doens’t start! We want the user to be able to feel like it’s easy and not have to understand the Prezi software (clicking from slide to slide). Is this possible?

Same question here. I don’t think we should need to purchase third party software to make this happen. Nor should we force the viewer to control the rate at the which the presentation advances.

SharePoint 2010?

Have you had success embedding a Prezi into a M.O. Publisher email format? We would like to include the Prezi in an email blast but get the html code and a link. Thank you!

I’m in the same boat. Once a user clicks “Start Prezi”, they then need to click the “Play” button in the bottom left corner to start the audio. I’ve added user directions for the time being, but this is crazy. When’s a fix coming, David???

I agree with you guys that we can improve the autoplay feature. It is something we are working on, but I can’t guarantee you a fixed date for when this will happen. When I do know more, I will let you guys know here.

actually you can embed into the wiki – at least up till a few days ago, when my prezi’s suddenly stopped showing up when the wiki page was saved. When the wiki page is ‘edit’ mode, they are still there. I am not sure if it’s a prezi - or a wiki problem.

Hello! I recently created a Prezi for our non-profit’s website and want to embed it within the text of a page. When editing the content of the page I have simply been copying and pasting the code created by Prezi into the text body. When I then view the page, it just displays the code instead of the presentation. Am I missing a step or is it possible that our site doesn’t support iFrames or Prezi?
