Author user level can not write tags (3 posts)

    I have Author users on my system that I want them to be able to post YouTube videos with the embed tags. However, whenever they post the object and embed tags and save, the post disappears.

    I couldn't find anything in the codex documentation about user levels that says that these users are restricted from writing tags. It only states that they can write a post. I also couldn't find a fix that acknowledges this problem.

    Anyone have any clues for this? I couldn't find a forum post or a search based on this problem, but if it already exists, please point the way!

    Maybe you can use a plugin like EasyTube

    I'd like to bump this thread.

    a "youtube" plugin is not a solution because then you cant embed other videos without plugins either.

    does anyone know how to modify the permissions of "Author" user types to allow embed
