Looks like your CMS (Vanilla?) is stripping out the HTML embed code.


Did you “Enabled Embedding”. From doc:


Embedding Checklist



  1. Choose the embed friendly theme. This theme has minimal padding around it and will look good at any width. (Make modifications in Customize theme as you like).
  2. Ensure you have “Enabled Embedding” in your dashboard.
  3. Make sure that the page in which you embed is free of javascript errors.


Otherwise, you could add the embed code directly to the theme file?

Off the top of my head, I'm not sure if you can add javascript links. i.e security reasons. That should be put in the head section of the theme file.
