Embed gfycat to site



Site URL: https://gdvfx.net/

Hello, I've found som instructions on embedding gfycat videos or gifs to my site, but haven't been able to get it working.

I am a coding novice, so I'm likely doing something wrong.

The instructions found here: https://github.com/gfycat/gfycat.js state to enter this code right after the opening <body> tag:

      (function(d, s, id){
         var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
         if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}
         js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
         js.src = "https://assets.gfycat.com/gfycat.js";
         fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
       }(document, 'script', 'gfycat-js'));

Then to include an embed tag:

<div class="gfyitem" data-title=true data-autoplay=false data-controls=true data-id="BestYellowishElephantseal"></div>

So what I've tried is selecting the settings gear on the page I'd like to add the embed to, go to advanced and entered the code into the 'Page header code injection'

Then I tried to add both a code block and an embed block with the above example embed tag with no luck.


What am I doing wrong?

Any help woudl be greatly appreciated!
