A student said she could not embed Insta posts in her blog. My knee-jerk reply is that the two probably didn’t play nice together.
Now, i’m testing it with the embed code provided by Instagram with each post.
First: I tried getting the Insta URL by simply clicking on the copy URL option. It wouldn’t take. so, then I went to the field showing the code, and copied it there. OK. Then i pasted it into the Visual option in the WP post. It showed the code; no good. Then I posted it in the HtmL option, and got a blank square.
But wait, there’s more.
Then I did the smart thing. I looked it up in WordPress support. And it’s much simpler to do.
Bottom line: Instead of using embed code, grab the post’s URL. Then paste it on a line in the Visual editor view. Voila. It’s there.
Tip: Switch to the HTML view so you can see what the code looks like.
