Please note, some blog services strip script tags and this prevents Medium embeds from functioning. You will need to convert the script tags to the one the blog service use. If you are trying to embed on wordpress dot com, just paste the Medium story, profile, or collection URL and hit return (enter). No need to copy the embed code.
