    I´ve complained about this for a year now. And I have no intent of being nice about it. My last topic got deleted, and since WordPress not giving me back anything as a customer in this issue, I don´t see why I should be giving back any nice behaviour about it.

    Embedded code like Google Maps, will be deleted if you switch back to Visual View, after having put the code in HTML View.

    You are all aware of it, but chose not to do [moronic explicative] about it. And it is really unprofessional do not have embedding working in the biggest blog software of all time.

    I´d slap you all with a rotten fish if I could. Fix it!

    You aren't a customer. You're using a free blogging platform that's developed and supported by volunteers. There's no business model. No one made a dime off of you, unless you donated of course.

    Embedded code like Google Maps, will be deleted if you switch back to Visual View, after having put the code in HTML View.

    Unfortunately, this is how TinyMCE (the third-party volunteer-developed WYSIWYG editor used as the Visual editor) handles code. It can't interpret what it isn't programed to understand, so it just throws it out. I believe the WP devs are working on their own WYSIWYG editor to resolve the issue.

    You are all aware of it, but chose not to do [moronic explicative] about it. And it is really unprofessional do not have embedding working in the biggest blog software of all time.

    Compose your post in the Visual editor, switch to the HTML editor to embed your code, then publish the post. That's all you need to do.

    I´d slap you all with a rotten fish if I could. Fix it!

    I'm glad you feel entitled to fish slapping. I'm sure that will get the volunteers motivated.

    I don't think we'll achieve anything more here.
