TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Two young women from Mountain Home are safe after a hike took a bad turn Sunday in the Snake River Canyon near Shoshone Falls.

The Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office says the incident happened up river from Pillar Falls. Twin Falls deputies were called around 5 pm. County search and rescue and Twin Falls Fire also responded.

Two 18-year-olds were on a walking trail and hiked down to the river’s edge. However, they were not able to hike back out.

The sheriff’s office said they call Southern Idaho Regional Communications dispatch for help.

Search and rescue took its jet boat along with what's called an inflatable zodiac boat to Pillar Falls, and then carried the zodiac boat over the falls. This effort took six firefighters and three search and rescue crew.

Search and rescue picked up the uninjured girls and transported them back to Centennial Park, where their parents were waiting at about 7:30 p.m.

Embedded Posts
Embedded Posts are a simple way to put public posts - by a Page or a person on Facebook - into the content of your web site or web page. Only public posts from Facebook Pages and profiles can be embedded.

fluid width


Applied to photo post. Set to true to include the text from the Facebook post, if any.


Getting your Code from a Post
1. Navigate to your Post
You can get the embed code directly from the post itself. If the post is public, click on the icon that appears in the top right corner of the post on Facebook.

Choose Embed Post from the drop down menu:

For photo posts select the Embed Post button on the bottom right:

2. Copy and Paste Code
You will see a dialog appear with the code to embed your post in it. Copy and paste this code into your web page in the place where you want it to appear.

For technical details please refer to the section Add Code Manually

Add Code Manually
Besides the Code Generator, you can also embed the code manually.

1. Get Post URL
First you need to get the URL of a post you wish to share. The post must be public, which is indicated by the gray world icon, right next the post's publishing time:

For testing you can use this example URL:

2. Load JavaScript SDK
To use the Embedded Posts Plugin, or any other Social Plugin, you need to add the Facebook JavaScript SDK to your website. You need to load the SDK only once on a page, ideally right after the opening tag:

You can find more help on implementing the JavaScript SDK in the JavaScript SDK - Quickstart.

3. Place Embedded Post Tag
Next place the Embedded Post tag at any place of your website. Replace {your-post-url} with your posts' URL.

4. Testing
Once you completed these steps you're able to test your Embedded Post. A completed integration will look like something like this:

My Website


The result of our test example is shown in the screenshot below.

5. Customizing
Follow the instructions further down this page to adjust size, language and other settings.

Getting a post's URL
There may be scenarios in which your embed code is created by a CMS and you just need the raw post URL. There are two ways to get a post's URL:

Copy the URL of the permalink from your browser's address bar.
Right-click the post's publishing time and copy the link address.
Both methods are highlighted in red in the screenshot below.

Via Graph API
If you wish to automatically integrate embedded posts into your website, you probably use the Graph API to aggregate posts. For example you may use the Page Feed API endpoint and the fields parameter permalink_url.

The response to your request to /{page-id}/feed?fields=permalink_url will send you a response like this:

"data": [
"id": "1234567890_3456789012",
"permalink_url": "https://www.facebook.com/1234567890/posts/3456789012"
Layout on Desktop
You can adjust the width of Embedded Posts on desktop via the data-width attribute in the Embed Post tag as shown in the example below. Chose a value between 350 and 750 pixels.

Do not use CSS style tags to adjust the size of a plugin. It may result into display errors.



Layout on Mobile Web
On mobile web, Embedded Posts automatically scale to the width of the container.

If you are already using the Facebook SDK for JavaScript in your Wordpress site you can use the Embedded Posts plugin by simply adding the fb-post tag to your Wordpress post:

If you are not using the Facebook SDK for JavaScript and embed a Post via the copy&paste snippet, which you can get from each Facebook post, the Embedded Posts plugin will most likly not render as Wordpress will convert all & chars to #038; and break the plugin.

Instead use the following code to add the plugin:


A new, easy Wordpress integration will be released in the near future.
