Can I make a suggestion? Reply here with the embed code that you used, with the changes you made in the HTML field of Custom Button. Then somebody might be able to look at it and see what you need to change to get it working properly. 

Good call! Here's what I have:

Why custom coding? 


I do not mind paying for a plug-in for this btw, but as far as I remember the Insta embed was working from core earlier..?

It was indeed working fine until Facebook deprecated literally everything public accessible on oct 24 https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/changelog/version8.0#social-plugins and unfortunlaty their new implementation requires following steps, so we couldn't implement it just out of the box:

I have a plugin currently being tested that reintroduces Facebook and Instagram oembed support. Once it has been tested/confirmed I'll get it in the marketplace. Should only be a few more days, depending upon approval time.

Really looking forward to this 😢 Thank you for making it! My community hasn't been the same since heh

Many thanks to @rebraf for restoring this functionality, great work! I commissioned this plugin to be shared on the marketplace and supported by rebraf, to help fellow community admins get their content back on track.

I can confirm this plugin works well, and also restores Instagram embed functionality to older posts with existing embeds that had broken. It will be available for download in the store very soon, it's worth the wait! Installation is easy, and it 'just works' after you enter your App credentials in the ACP.

I didn't see a support topic yet (which I will need.) 🙂 Questions like - do I have to create an app for Instagram and one for Facebook and add the oembed product to both? Or can I just create one app? I don't have any experience with creating and using apps through Facebook, so I'm at a bit of a loss.

If it takes two months every time it changes I can only guess Invision won't bother in the future.

I've had to learn not to rely on it. We adapt.

 

[Edit: Sounds like a Facebook app. is now needed to make it to work. Can't blame Invision for that with FB adding the extra hurdles. Again we've learnt not to rely on such conveniences. It often comes back to bite you in the years that follow.]

Nearly 2 month have past, is this any closer to being sorted ? or will it not be part of the software any more. thank you

IPS is no longer able to support the feature due to changes made by Facebook, which now requires a Facebook developer account App (free) for their oEmbed system. You can however restore the embed functionality with this inexpensive plugin, which updates Facebook and Instagram embeds to use the new Facebook App authentication system.

 

You have to jump through a few hoops, and spend $10, but it's worth the trouble. Once configured with your Facebook App credentials, it's pretty much a 'set it and forget it' plugin. @rebraf will help ensure future compatibility.

When using facebook logins you had to have a facebook developer account and create a facebook app so that's nothing new, not sure why IPS can no longer support oEmbed,

Once again a developer has stepped in and restored the feature back so quickly, not knocking the developer of the plugin. They all have my respect and thanks for restoring dropped features or improving the IPS software. Thank you all

At this particular time i have to stop buying plugins as they all total up per year and start to make the software expensive.

Will this be fixed in the next versions of Invision Community or do I need to buy a plugin for $ 10.00 / 12 months for this primitive feature?

I'm pretty sure the functionality will get sorted by IPS at some point, since they offered it in the past and they stated they were working on it. I'd be really surprised if they don't address this in a future update.

You can also add Media option to your ckeditor :

https://ckeditor.com/cke4/addon/embed

It's permit to add some embed features but it's doesn't work by parsing a link directly to the editor.
