    Hello. Can authors include code in a post? I have several people working in a blog and they are unable to post code. As soon as they save it as a draft the code disspears. Any ideas? Thanks

    There is a bug in wordpress ... oh, sorry, I mean "feature", that won't let you use any embed code. This is supposedly a security thing, but does not make a lot of sense to me given than strangers are unlikely to embed anything on your blog!

    So, it seems like, every single time you want to use a new type of embed code (you tube, flickr, whatever) you have to install another plug in. Seriously annoying, but I don't know any other way!

    There are lots of flickr slideshow plugins that will do it, just look in the plugin directory.
