Instagram oEmbed for WordPress

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 1:53 pm

Apparently Instagram embed for WordPress stopped working around October 24, 2020 due to an API change from FB, so from that point now readers will see the raw Instagram links (example) on my posts instead of the image posts (example).

There are workarounds such as use the embed code, but that looks too long and I prefer to keep the post sources simple and clean.

Update on March 4 2021:
The issues are now resolved via oEmbed plugins.

I spotted this intriguing reflection off a large glass wall and took a photo for potential drawing reference, but have yet to figure out what to do.

The refraction and caustics of the drink on the checkered counter top made a perfect scene for drawing.
