How to Embed Google Wave on Your WordPress Blog?

Mark Essel has written a nice article on how to embed Google Wave on a WordPress blog. Follow the simple steps below:


1. Install the wavr plugin and activate it.

2. Once you have activated the plugin, you would need the WAVE ID to embed the wave.
[wave id="WAVE_ID"]

3. In order to find the Wave ID, check out the wave URL. If Google Wave URL is
https://wave.google.com/wave/#restored:wave:googlewave.com!w%252BSsJfE3HIC

the wave ID will be googlewave.com!w%252BSsJfE3HIC
