Hey @rebraf! Interesting turn of events. The Instagram embeds show still, but they all look like this now (see below). Wondering if that's happening to you? We are still a little ways a way from 4.6 (which includes this IG and FB embed fix) so I'd love to see if we can find an answer sooner than later haha ūüėܬ†

Let me know what you think!

I've found that if I'm logged into certain VPNs you get what you are seeing there. Instagram tends to block many public IP addresses (i.e. VPNs and proxies).

If you're logged in to a VPN or proxy, try logging off of it to see if the issue persists.

Hey there. I'm hesitant to ask lol, but would this possibly work on 4.6? It's currently working in my community that's on 4.5. Because of the nature of my community, Instagram embeds are imperative. 

Anyone have any insight? Would be greatly appreciated! I know there's another topic going on about this, but haven't seen much conversation directed at this existing plugin. Thank you ūüôŹ¬†

Jordan, you wrote yourself that this was fixed in 4.6. Why are you not using the latest version of IPS Community Suite as befits a member of the IPS team?

The plugin is not needed anymore, as the functionality has been added to 4.6:

Instructions are here: https://invisioncommunity.com/4guides/advanced-options/configuration-options/facebook-and-instagram-embedding-r359/

A new problem is that Facebook will turn off the embedding functionality soon unless you go through an elaborate review process:

Today, June 8, 2021, we announced v11.0 of the Graph API and Marketing APIs. With this update, there are new requirements to be able to access oEmbed APIs. Some of your apps currently access the oEmbed APIs and might be affected by these changes.

To continue accessing the oEmbed APIs, you will have to submit your apps for review by September 6th, 2021. If you want to request new access to the oEmbed APIs, you will also need to submit your app(s) for review.

To learn more, please review the updated requirements. If your apps haven't been reviewed for the oEmbed API feature by September 6, 2021, your apps will lose access to this feature. To avoid disruption to your apps' oEmbed access, please submit for App Review as soon as possible.

Yea lol nice point. I haven't jumped ship to 4.6 yet because I just¬†wanted to confirm with the community either¬†this review process would still allow for embedding Instagram posts, or perhaps this plugin was an option still¬†- IG embeds are¬†super important in my community. Another reason I haven't upgraded just yet was that I have a bunch of plugins and apps that I needed to make sure were on 4.6 ūüĎľ¬† Most are ready to go though!¬†

Appreciate you reminding me of this. I did this review process a while ago and it did work in my community. I receive a lot of messages from the community asking about embeds for their own community. Might be worth me trying this out in a test environment when I have some spare time. Thanks again!! ūüôŹ¬†
