    This doesn’t work anymore, at least.

    This is a very old method. In the new WordPress, just click the HTML tab on the post edit page and paste it there, then go back to Visual.

    Fantastic, thanks so much for such a simple solution which was so easily found in youtube but impossible to get a straight answer on in the wordpress forum. Cheers :)
