For the first method, we are using the default block editor and will copy a URL from TikTok and paste it into a post or page. WordPress should automatically generate an embed that you can see in your edit area.

You can also use the plus icon and add a TikTok block to your post to include it that way. Should you want to add it to your widget area, you would want to add a Text widget and paste the TikTok URL there, WordPress should automatically change the URL to an embed for your visitors.

If you want to show your most recent posts on TikTok you would want to install and activate the QuadLayers TikTok Feed plugin found below:

You should now be able to go under TikTok Feed in your wp-admin area and the feeds section in the submenu is where we head next. Click the +Feed button where you can start creating your first feed. You can choose a hashtag or user name and customize how the feed is displayed. Once you save it you will now be given a shortcode to add where you would like it to appear.

For in post/page content you would want to use the shortcode block for embedding. The plugin can be edited to change how the videos are displayed including a popup and how hovering over the different sections works on your site.
