    this one from Kinsta but when I tested it seems like it’s not working anymore:

    How to Disable Embeds in WordPress

    function disable_embeds_code_init() {

    // Remove the REST API endpoint.
    remove_action( 'rest_api_init', 'wp_oembed_register_route' );

    // Turn off oEmbed auto discovery.
    add_filter( 'embed_oembed_discover', '__return_false' );

    // Don't filter oEmbed results.
    remove_filter( 'oembed_dataparse', 'wp_filter_oembed_result', 10 );

    // Remove oEmbed discovery links.
    remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wp_oembed_add_discovery_links' );

    // Remove oEmbed-specific JavaScript from the front-end and back-end.
    remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wp_oembed_add_host_js' );
    add_filter( 'tiny_mce_plugins', 'disable_embeds_tiny_mce_plugin' );

    // Remove all embeds rewrite rules.
    add_filter( 'rewrite_rules_array', 'disable_embeds_rewrites' );

    // Remove filter of the oEmbed result before any HTTP requests are made.
    remove_filter( 'pre_oembed_result', 'wp_filter_pre_oembed_result', 10 );

    add_action( 'init', 'disable_embeds_code_init', 9999 );

    function disable_embeds_tiny_mce_plugin($plugins) {
    return array_diff($plugins, array('wpembed'));

    function disable_embeds_rewrites($rules) {
    foreach($rules as $rule => $rewrite) {
    if(false !== strpos($rewrite, 'embed=true')) {
    return $rules;

    btw the Disable Embeds plugin doesn’t work, apparently it’s designed only to disable the rich previews of blog posts when your articles are shared on other sites and vice versa… kinda stupid name in that case IMO

    You’re right they don’t work. At least, not fully.

    There’s been like 20 plugins for doing this I think, none of them ever seemed to work correctly. Is it a difficult code to disable or something?
