Blog By Email with YouTube Code (2 posts)

    According to .. http://codex.wordpress.org/Blog_by_Email

    WordPress will use the Subject line of your email for the title of the post, and all body of the email will be used as the content of the post, with common HTML tags stripped. WordPress will file the post under whichever category is selected for "Usual Category" in Step 1, and will use Site Admin as the poster.

    Any images and attachments in your email will be posted inline.

    However .. on one of my blogs I have a Vlogger doing videos and we wish to just email the YouTube code directly to the blog for posting. It's stripping the <object> and html for the code for the YouTube.

    Is there a way around this?

    Hello? Anybody?

    I've now tried this about a dozen times and it just will not include any javascript or object codes from the YouTube site - that you embed in wordpress blogs - by email.

    That HTML tag strip statement in the codex link doesn't make sense either - because in my text body area .. i can manipulate it with the H2 and H3 and FONT=COLOR tags.

    Has anybody written a plugin or script to allow YouTube code to be posted via email to blog?
