Plotly figures not showing up on github-hosted site?

I’m having some trouble with Plotly/cufflinks (Python) figures not being rendered on my github-hosted website (here: In order to make the posts on that page, I have to upload a .ipynb file, or .json file to github. Github then renders the notebook in the blog-like format you see on that site. When I do this, though, the Plotly figures do not show up for some reason. If I export the notebook to HTML and upload it to github, the figures show up, but this format does not work for my site.

Some googling doesn’t seem to shed much light on the problem. Other figures plotted using Seaborn or Pandas show up just fine though. Anyone else have this problem and know how to solve it?
