Paris #2

So, the Instagram embed worked somewhat. Let's try it again because I forget to get a screenshot of the "Sorry message" 

Got it now. To reproduce: Click on Insert > use Embed Tab > Scroll to Instagram and select it. Grab the photos Instagram Url from the other window and paste it in the form. 

A Bear with Angels greeted us outside the Gare du Nord in Paris. Later that day, while waiting for our family, I learned more about the artist Richard Texier from his Wikipedia page.

By the way, seems I found the Drop Cap Settings in Gutenberg. Nifty.

Paris #1

We arrived by train from Brussels after our flight across the Atlantic. Gare de L’Est has change quite a bit since 1994. What hasn’t changed is that they don’t announce the platform where trains arrive and leave until 20 minute before scheduled time. So you hang out near the big boards for a while. So, I planned to embed my Instagram photo from this URL https://www.instagram.com/p/BVMf-uOD4-s/ above I just got a note “Sorry, we could not embed that content” Maybe that changes, when I hit publish? I like how I can change the gallery settings for the blog above… 🙂 Let see what happens when I publish. Hitting it now. And the pix showed after publishing. Above error message only appear when looking at it through Gutenberg Editor

Google Drive Direct Link Generator

A few days ago, I was stumped by Google Drive. I upload all my photos and most files to Google Drive, and it’s actually replaced my hard drive most of the time. So one of the graphics uploaded there is an image I wanted to use in a post, but all I could get was the sharing link and not the link to the actual file. For a HTML page to display images you need to able to point to the file not to a pointer to a file. I found the solution! Wooza!

Found this site: Google Drive Direct Link Generator
Paste your ‘normal’ Google Drive sharing link into the top field and it will  convert the Google Sharing link to the actual file location.
The source came from the documentation of Seriously Simple Podcast plugin by Hugh Lashbrooke.
