TikTok Feed Review
TikTok Feed is an entirely free WordPress plugin created by QuadLayers. If you are following our blog for a while, you probably know QuadLayers. They are the same team behind plugins like WhatsApp Chat, WooCommerce Checkout Manager, WooCommerce Direct Checkout, Instagram Feed, etc.
It’s a brand new plugin in the market for embedding TikTok videos into WordPress. According to other available plugins, TikTok Feed by QuadLayers offers more comfortable and unique features. Plus, the developer team is working hard on the plugin for making it even better.
Now, let’s take a look at the powerful features of TikTok Feed.
The embedded videos will be 100% responsive. So no matter your website visitors are using desktop/ tablet or even a mobile. The gallery would fit on their screen.
Mobile visitors are increasing according to desktop searches. So, you will need to keep your WordPress site responsive. Otherwise, you will start losing website visitors or potential customers.
Works With Any WordPress Theme
In the market, there are so many WordPress themes and theme clubs are available. In our case, we are using a custom child theme made on top of the Genesis Framework. Anyway, none of us are using the same theme for our blog. We all are using different, or custom made themes for uniquely keeping our brand.
And thankfully, the TikTok Feed WordPress plugin will work with any WordPress theme. There won’t be any compatibility issues or something similar.
In case if you move to a new WordPress theme, it will not affect your TikTok galleries.
You can fetch two types of videos.
- From a specific account.
- Via a hashtag.
While creating a feed, you will see these options. You can enter the TikTok profile’s username or using a specific hashtag. There won’t be any issues. And this is a great feature.
While you cover any specific event or something, the hashtag method would be perfect. As an example, let’s say that we are covering the Diwali related videos. From the whole TikTok database, we will be able to fetch the Diwali videos by entering that hashtag.
Impressive, isn’t it?
On the other hand, if you are planning to fetch contents from an account, the username method is excellent. Well, it depends on your usage.
If you are going to cover multiple TikTok accounts, that’s possible too. There’s no restriction on feeds. You will be able to create as many feeds you need from the plugin’s settings.
So when one of your website visitors clicks on your embedded video, a pop-up box will open with the video, user information, caption, tags, etc.
An example is above. You can also display the total likes they got and the comments. The customizations can be found while you create a new feed.
You can control the
100% customizer ready.
Caching Technology Integrated
The plugin is fetching contents from TikTok using an API. So when a user goes to some page you have inserted the TikTok gallery, the plugin needs to send HTTP requests again and again. And probably, this can slow down your WordPress website.
For keeping your WordPress site optimized for speed and performance, you might want to consider sending only fewer requests. Thankfully, this TikTok Feed plugin comes with an inbuilt caching technology.
The plugin will save all the data to your server and serve when user requests. No need to send additional requests to the TikTok API, and this way, you can reduce the load time of pages.
Plus, this caching technology will always help you to make your videos visible even if there any issue with the TikTok API.
You don’t need to know to code for embedding the feeds to a page or post. Usually, we might want to use some sort of PHP code in the theme’s core files or on the custom template for showing galleries. Thankfully, here in this TikTok Feed WordPress plugin, you can get rid of that.
The plugin is 100% beginner-friendly. Once you have created a feed inside your blog, the plugin will generate a unique shortcode for the feed. All you need to do is, copy it, paste the code where you want to display the videos.
It can be anywhere likes page post/ custom post type, etc. Totally according to your use.
Since the plugin is downloadable through the WordPress repository, the support will be too via there. Once you have checked their support forum, you can see the issues posted by users and the status of the problem.
If you do have an issue that needs their attention, log in to your WordPress.org account, and create a new topic. This way, you can post support requests. And one of their support team will help you there to figure out that issue.
Before contacting their support team, you might want to consider checking the TikTok Feed documentation section. Thankfully, they have a wide range of docs articles. They have arranged the part like:
You can refer to those articles for configuring the plugin. If you need additional help, feel free to contact the support team.

You will need to search for the TikTok Feed plugin there. Once you have found the plugin, install it on your blog.
After installation, activate it.

For adding a feed, you need to click on the add feed button.

- Video Limits.
- Video Settings.
- Pop-Up Settings.

Once you have configured those, click on the Save button.
Embedding is also pretty simple. The plugin will generate a shortcode.
