Description

A user writes: I am having difficulties with embedding an Instagram video into a post. I have posted the code into the text portion of the Add Post module. Upon preview (and after published) the video itself does not appear.

Do we not allow them for security reasons? Thanks!

You are correct that we do not support iframe or embed use, for security reasons.

WordPress ought to handle Instagram embeds using its oEmbed feature. Just take the URL of an Instagram post, and paste it on its own line in the editor. WordPress will build the embed code automatically.
