XKCD Embed


Allows display of XKCD comics through a simple widget or shortcode. Both can be configured to display the latest comic, a random comic, or a specific comic.

For example, to display comic 100 using the shortcode, simply put the shortcode [xkcd id=”100″] where you want it to be shown.

[xkcd id=”random” title=”false”] will display a random comic, without the title.
