  • Component changed from Embeds to Editor
  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Version changed from 4.5.1 to 4.4

That actually sounds like a bug in the editor to me.

Embeds should only work if they're on a separate line on their own, not inside a blockquote or paragraph. Note that a change to the behaviour of embeds inside paragraphs is being discussed in #25387 though.

Hi @andreasnrb,

Sorry that this ticket was overlooked for so long.

A lot has changed since this was created. Most notably, the new block editor has been merged into WordPress Core. Because the block editor is the new editing experience, only high priority/major bug fixes are being worked on for the Classic Editor (which this post references). Because of this, I am going to close this out as a wontfix. If someone feels passionately and wants to work on a fix for this, they can reopen this ticket.

That said, I did some testing in the block editor, and it appears that the experience is the opposite. An embed link in the blockquote block does not render in the editor. But, it does render on the front end. I have documented this with screenshots above, but this will need to be addressed on the Gutenberg GitHub repository. I have opened an issue there for further investigation.
