This image uses Instagram gutenberg Block.

In this image when I pasted the url it this error.

To solve the above issue you need to use “Custom HTML block” instead of Gutenberg block, and add the HTML embed code from Gutenberg.


Go to Instagram and choose the photo you wish to embed and then you’ll find the option which says embed that will give you the above code and then paste in in the “Custom HTML” block.

Please follow the below screenshots for Embedding the HTML BLock for Instagram.
