The New Instagram Embed Feature

The new Instragram embed feature announced a couple of days ago, uses iframes.

I know it works with self-hosted Wordpress blogs because I embedded some images on the Quillcards blog yesterday.

It does not work with blogs because Wordpress strips iframes out of posts - leaving nothing there at all. I tested that as well.

Embeds cannot be pinned with Pinterest. I tested that.

And as far as I can tell, embeds do not work with Blogger blogs. At least, the code didn't show as as image when I looked at this post in 'preview' mode a second ago.

Here is the code; let's see what happens when I publish.

<iframe src="//" width="612" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>


Let's try something else - such as turning my brain on and writing this post in HTML mode rather than Compost mode...
