Open your WordPress dashboard and open the blog post you wish to embed the media (or start a new post.)

Paste the URL onto a line of its own. Make sure it is plain text and not a hyperlink. Hit return.


Publish your post and you should now have a fully interactive Instagram post embedded into your content.
