    Please allow us to embed Storify-curated materials. Current it seems our WP blogs do not allow us to do this.

    For example, after embedding the following code

    <script src=”//storify.com/GeorgeOnline/disability-studies-the-mla-and-the-aaup-report-ac.js”></script><noscript>[<a href=”//storify.com/GeorgeOnline/disability-studies-the-mla-and-the-aaup-report-ac” target=”_blank”>View the story “\”Disability Studies, the MLA, and the AAUP Report ‘Accommodating Faculty Members Who Have Disabilities’\”” on Storify</a>]</noscript>

    A blog post should look like this http://ow.ly/gAZF9 (a post on my WordHerders-hosted WorkBook) and not this http://ow.ly/gAZYr (the same content as it appears on my MLACommons-hosted WorkBook).

    See my post on your topic about <embed>s and <object>s. Unfortunately Storify is currently not included in WordPress’s shortcodes. I’ll look into a separate plugin to provide this functionality.

    How about this Storify plugin? From the “features” description: “Embed stories with ease — simply paste the URL to the story, and WordPress takes care of the rest.”

    I want to limit the number of plugins, so the best approach is to take these up one at a time and include them all in a single plugin. Where possible I’ll use oEmbed, which provides the user-friendly approach of being able to paste in a URL on its line. I’ve added SoundCloud:

    https://soundcloud.com/english254/chris-adrian-reads-donald

    (Note that the SoundCloud-provided “WordPress Code” doesn’t work; just paste in the URL on its own line instead.)

    I’ve also added Storify:
