en WordPress.com Forums › Support Troubleshooting G Embeds Author Posts September 16, 2013 at 4:04 pm #1442282 justjenniferModerator I’m having trouble embedding a publicly shared Google Plus post as per the Support Doc instructions. http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-plus-embeds/ Staff can see my test post on my test site. Although I tried the direct embed method, the URL shows up as a link in the post, although if you look at the Editor, it is not a link. I then tried it with the shortcode in the same post, and here the post simply does not show up. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks. The blog I need help with is ablogdemo.wordpress.com. September 17, 2013 at 1:51 pm #1442490 kraftbjStaff Hey Jennifer, I was able to get it to work by tweaking the URL. The original URL was https://plus.google.com/u/0/100004581596612508203/posts/2UKwN67MBQs which includes the /u/0/ (typically meaning the first user you signed in as while signing in to multiple Google accounts with /u/1/ being the next, etc. I removed the user identifier to make it https://plus.google.com/100004581596612508203/posts/2UKwN67MBQs which worked as expected. I’ll check with the Social folks and will update the documentation if there’s not a code fix they can put in. Thanks for pointing that out.

September 23, 2013 at 9:29 pm #1442525 justjenniferModerator Hey Brandon, The embed is working correctly now, even with the additional Google account user identifier bits in the URL, so thank you and thank Beau for me as well. :) September 23, 2013 at 9:35 pm #1442526 kraftbjStaff Will do :-) Thanks again for pointing it out!
