Next, I scrolled down to the "Details" section on the left and clicked on it to reveal some important information, the "Contract Address" and the "Token ID" as seen here:
⚠️⚠️⚠️NOTE: This only works with NFTs using the ERC-721 contract⚠️⚠️⚠️

Right, so that's in the paste buffer, I go back to the draft and paste it in- but do I hit enter? Goodness, no! I go back and click the Token ID to similarly copy its value into my paste buffer because typing the 4 digits is too hard and you can totally trust websites to fill your paste buffer, right? 🙅 No, you can't, really.

If all goes well, you will see the embedded NFT load in after a few seconds. Congratulations. 🎉
If you see it loading forever, undo the embed and try again. I have seen it hang the first time and then work quickly the second time 😐. If that doesn't do it, make sure you aren't missing the #tokenId bit at the end the end. Also be sure that the token standard is ERC-721.
