Hi Boone,

Please see the inquiry below from Bret Maney, and English/DH Prof at Lehman. I've created an account for him and added him as a watcher to this ticket




Dear Commons Team,

I initially forward the request below to the GC Digital Fellows and they recommended I get in touch with you. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Thanks, Bret

Dear Fellows,

I’ve started putting together a site on the CUNY Academic Commons to feature student writing. You can see it here ( . On this site, I’d like to include some mapping projects I’ve done with students.

Embedding CartoDB maps in WordPress has been made extremely easy. You just insert the link into your post or page and voilà. The process is described here ( , and I’ve tested it in another WordPress site. I can’t however, get it to work on my CUNY Academic Commons site and I was wondering if you knew what might be the problem and if there is a workaround.

Thanks, Bret

It looks like this is possible by activating the Jetpack plugin. Once you've done so, URLs pasted on their own line (as in the gif in the linked post) should result in embeds.

Many thanks, Boone. I installed the jetpack plugin and can verify it now works.
Cheers, Bret
