How do I post/embed a Google Street View image on the Forum? Using the Google Maps embed a map function, I'm able to copy and paste code such as:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!4v1524120398534!6m8!1m7!1sOvHOa99qmOv9bjALK38S9g!2m2!1d39.60587540819751!2d-86.15865693850336!3f301.7122472630216!4f-7.424413896826437!5f0.7820865974627469" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

But, so far, I'm unable to get an image produced using various Forum functions. So what do I need to do to embed an image, such as the above?

Thanks.

There probably is a way to directly embed the actual GMSV image in a post on here, but if not, and if all else fails, I would recommend taking a picture of the image with your phone (or if looking at it on your phone, take a screenshot, which would have even better quality). For example, from time to time when participating in the "Daily Picture Challenge" thread, I have taken a picture of the GMSV on my computer screen with my phone, then uploaded those photos to Flickr, then embedded them in my post from there. I couldn't tell you how to directly embed it, though.
Now alternating between different highway shields for my avatar - my previous highway shield avatar for the last few years was US 76.

Convince the forum operators to allow iframe embedding. My understanding is that it can be done, but they prohibit it here.
