Hi,

I noticed that depending on how you share a TikTok link on a forum, the video would be open inside the post or in a new window.

If you use the URL in the address bar, the video will be embedded in the post and played in the post.

If you use the "Copy link" inside the TikTok app, then the video will be embedded in the post BUT play in a new video, and the user will leave. your forum!

 

Example 1 with URL in the address bar: (xxx.tiktok.com/@andcarli/video/7155581979956808965?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1)

 

https://www.tiktok.com/@andcarli/video/7155581979956808965?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1

 

Example 2 with the "Copy Link" from TikTok app: (xxx.vm.tiktok.com/ZMF9Sjb6q///vm.tiktok.com/ZMF9Sjb6q/

 

https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMF9Sjb6q///vm.tiktok.com/ZMF9Sjb6q/

 

99% of users are sharing TikTok from the app, using the "copy link" feature and not from a desktop window.

How to prevent users from seeing the video in a new video.?

Thanks

Hi @Kyle,

I did the update on WordPress.

On chrome, TikTok is still opening on a new window.

On Firefox, it shows only a link.

Please advise.

@ldj72,

Maybe you have ad blocker or something like that?
