Social Media Testing: #Instagram Embed and Video Features

      • Yep after posting to a WP forum a WP staffer got back to me and said they had fixed the problem.
        I was so relieved. I’ve been an avid user of embedded IG images for so long now. It looks like it was connect to IG’s decision to allow embedded links in all websites.
