wordpress insta iframe php

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have a strange issue. (or maybe not for you). In wordpress you can put instagram as iframes simply by writing the url on a separate line. That works fine. But I needed to get the url proglamaticly so I did a php code like the following

 <?php
echo '<iframe height="1250px" width="96%" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="', htmlspecialchars($_GET["insta"]), '">', '</iframe>';
?>

What it does is that it takes from the url the variable insta and puts that on the page as an iframe. ex. www.myblog.com/specialpage?insta=https://instagram.com/p/8JEjgAicX7/

 

So this doesent work. it gives an empty iframe, but if I only write that address in a wordpress post or page it do work.

 

However with the exact same code with /embed/ added do work. Problem is that does not show the captions and hashtags.

www.myblog.com/specialpage?insta=https://instagram.com/p/8JEjgAicX7/embed/   <-- this is working

 

I dont know if this a php-wordpress or what problem. but if you have a clue then your help is appreciated
