Let’s see if it shows with the Insert Link tool:


Nope. But... it shows in the quoted post. An Administrator will check this during the work week.

Interesting. I think the site is trying to display the IG post itself, but is for some reason unable to do so. EDIT: IG link will show if you put text under it. I will tell tech. Thanks for the head's up!

Hi everyone, Instagram posts from now on should embed properly. They changed something on their end, which caused them to not display, but tech figured out who to account for their changes. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
