    Can't seem to get a spreadsheet to properly embed in a post. At least, it doesn't render when I click the 'preview' button. This post is an example of what I'm looking for. Sadly, that thread is closed so I can't quote it to copy the formatting. Creating my own quote code for this post didn't work either.
    Code:

    The desired sheet is published to the web and allows anyone to view & comment. I've tried a bunch of stuff beyond just using the 'embed media' button to no avail. Does this work for anyone else? What am I doing wrong?

    Trying something...

    Edit: Alright, it worked! Not sure why that URL isn’t working with the media embed button, but you can just take the document ID and put it into a media tag manually, like so:

    Thanks! I tried a few variants of that tag based on xenforo google results. Appreciate it :)
