What are Rich Embeds?
Rich Editor supports embedding of external content within posts. Use the embed menu to transform a link into a rich content embed.
Alternatively, pressing enter at the of a line containing only a link also attempt to create an embed from that link.
While we fetch the data for the embedded content, the link appears as a link with a loading indicator.
Once the embed is ready it will display in its' final form directly in the editor.

What causes the warning icon while inserting a Rich Embed?
Some users using browsers with strict privacy settings or adblockers may not be able to load a Rich Embed from certain sites in their browser.

These embeds will be still be able to load for users with a more permissive browser, even on the same post.
