Can't embed VIMEO code in VIDEO INSTRUCTABLE, can't enter contests Answered

Hi, I am trying to create this VIDEO INSTRUCTABLE: https://www.instructables.com/id/ETCXMR0HMEXSW8C/ but I can't get the page to save the VIMEO embedding code (<iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/76296797" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/76296797">Frankenstein Mad Science Lab - film set build</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/user21594626">damian zuch</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>)

ALSO: I tried to enter this in the Halloween Decoration contest but I get this message: "Sorry, your instructable isn't eligible; it may have been published before the contest entry date."

The dates are right, I don't know what's wrong?




Use the "embed media" icon in teh toolbar and paste the code in there. Sometimes the code box at the bottom of the page doesn't accept the iframe code for some reason.

I edited your project and tried it and it worked. Try it yourself!

Did you click on the "embed video" button?

As for the dates, you haven't properly published the video yet. If you had, it would have actual words in the URL, instead of that block of random letters and numbers.
