Can't embed videos after upgrade to Multisite (22 posts)

    All of my users with the Editor role used to be able to paste embeds into new posts just fine. After the upgrade to Multiuser, their embeds get stripped away like they were a contributor or Author role. How do I fix this so their embeds don't get stripped?

    That's a security feature of MU.

    Not sure if this plugin works with 3.0, but you might want to try:

    There is more about that here:

    I kinda feel ignored ;) - Is my reply hidden because it contains two links?

  5. @tordavis - try the plugin mentioned above.

    tried two plugins and still embeds not working. They work for me, the administrator but no longer work for Editors. I made someone an editor and they still weren't able to embed. this is weird.

    The only way it will work is by making someone a super admin.

  9. .. and you don't wanna do that...

    What about the built in embeds?

    I have specific parameters for my Blip.tv embeds. There's GOT to be another way.

  11. whipping up a quick plugin to allow it? that's what we did with mu.

    We too are having this issue as well with our 30+ blog network. Upgraded to WP 3.0 yesterday and blog/site administrators who in 2.9 could add video embed code to their posts are not allowed to, it strips out the code. As a Super Admin I have the ability to add embed code all day long, unfortunately with 30+ blogs that's exactly what I will be doing if this is not resolved.

    Anyone have any ideas? Did they strip out permissions from site/blog admins that can be changed by super admins giving them that capability. Really need some help with this.

  13. I wonder if one of the various members plugins could be used to grant this access. But yeah, one of the (major) downsides to MS/MU :(

  14. and blog/site administrators who in 2.9 could add video embed code to their posts are not allowed to, it strips out the code.

    So what did you have in place in 2.9 for them to do that?

    In 2.9, by default, it stripped code. You had to allow it, so if you hacked the kses.php file, then it got overwritten on upgrade.

    It may have been a hack.

    Unfortunately I did not build the network, I just maintain it. The developers have been made aware of this issue, yet they are a little slow to react.

    Initially I was wondering if there was a simple on/off switch that got turned off in the upgrade, but it appears that you may be onto something. Our blog network is rather custom so it would not surprise me that functionality that was important to us upon build, were not native to any version of MU at the time and required mountains of hacks and programing to achieve our results.

    In 2.9 it worked for me and anyone with the role of Editor. It was never an issue. I know it has something to do with WP3.0 MU. None of the MU plugins work though. There's got to be something in the database that can be changed to turn it on.

    [Edit] Added the role manager plugin and Editor Role has unfiltered_html checked. This is a bug in WP3.0. Something that is going to have to be fixed. Until then, Vipers will do.

    WordPress has support for oEmbed now, have you tried using that instead? It's WAY easier to do, and most sites now support it.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

    There's a plugin to enable oEmbed discovery too, which will let it work with sites that aren't known already by WordPress: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/enable-oembed-discovery/

    I like to embed using the code from blip.tv which has defined colors and settings. With oEmbed you can't do that.

    I want this to work like it did in 2.9.

    Unfiltered MU is broken for us since 3.0 and others as well, just a heads up.

  20. Other plugins, other embeds?

    Also, maybe notifying Donncha directly about his plugin would help. ;)

    The safest way is either to use the internal one-line embedd, or if it's not included, whip it up so it's suppoerted via plugin.

    I was going nuts until I found this thread. I had created test users with author, editor, and admin roles and in all cases embed code dissappeared. I had already tried user roles plugin, and editing functions.php to allow unfiltered html to authors to no avail.

    Since I have a video sharing site with multiple authors, I need to deactivate the multi-user network but leave the permalink structure with siteurl/blog/... intact. Not sure everything I need to do so that when the times come I can re-activate the multi-user network.

    I suppose as long as I keep my mofified wp-config and .htaccess files when I swap them out with the original files, I can restore, and that I just need to make sue that Category Base and Tag Base are set to /blog in permalink stucture after I dectivate the network.

    Anything else I should be concerned with? How will I know when the problem has been fixed? Has it been acknowledged by WP developers?

    It's intentional behavior, always has been.

    WordPress now has oembed for most videos.
