Welcome to Mathematica.SE! I suggest the following: 1) As you receive help, try to give it too, by answering questions in your area of expertise. 2) Read the FAQs! 3) When you see good Q&A, vote them up by clicking the gray triangles, because the credibility of the system is based on the reputation gained by users sharing their knowledge. ALSO, remember to accept the answer, if any, that solves your problem, by clicking the checkmark sign` – Vitaliy Kaurov Feb 25 '13 at 19:33

This free video course available from Wolfram Training site goes through details of CDF web embedding:

Computable Document Format: Deploying Ideas to the Web

Word Press CDF embedding and some other platforms are discussed in detail. needs to be checked - but if it does work, then it will use same ideas as explained in the course. Most platforms I know use the same set of procedures. There are two main cases to be aware:

1) Advanced site: your site can host files and allow JS plugins - like full Word Press platform hosted on your own domain. Then you host CDF on your own site and use one of two: - Play directly with JS: Web Delivery: Embedded and Full-Screen CDF - or use Wolfram CDF Plugin form - Here is an example

2) Basic generic blog: your site cannot host files and/or does not allow JS plugins. Then external storage and iframe tags can help. Here is an example

You also maybe interested to take a look at: CDF and MediaWiki. All of this is discussed in details in the linked video course.
