Then click on the Code button again to close out the HTML code (</code>). 

Step 5. Save, preview and publish!

Tip: Know that you can the embed code only works from public accounts. Make sure the content you’re sharing isn’t from a private account. If your Instagram account is set to private (even you can't share your own content), and you want to share your photos with this method, you'll need to publicize your account.
