Embed tag won't take (5 posts)

    Greetings,

    I want to display some flash pieces and when I use an <embed src> tag, it always gets stripped out when I save the page/post. Is there something (a plugin, etc) that is required before you can use this tag? The documentation shows it as an acceptable tag for use.

    Tx

    Disable the Rich Text Editor (wysiwyg), bottom left on your user profile page.

    tx, sorry for the wasted bandwidth. This was asked and answered.

    do you have vistors that use netscape? embed is just for netscape, and old netscape at that, nothing else -- you absolutely positively do NOT need it. Just a heads up.

    As described by vkayrl that will work around the issue.

    This is fixed in the development version of WordPress (codename 2.1).

    whoami: your comments about embed are not accurate. In my experience it is the most common way to include in web pages videos hosted else where.
