    I use WP 203 and a strange thing happen. When I use a author account, object/embed tag disappear ! I save the post and open again, and it's totally blank.
    When I put the object/embed code like the admin, there is no problem... Tags object/embed are forbidden to author ???

    I have seen many post on forum about object/embed problem but no one which speaks about mine...

    The author needs to have the wysiwyg editor disabled for it to work.

    No, having the wysiwyg editor disabled for it to work is wrong.

    I was looking into this same problem very recently and I discovered that author accounts don't have the same priveliges as the owner account - mainly in our case, the ability to use object/embed tags.

    From the codex:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities#unfiltered_html

    unfiltered_html

    Allows - if enabled - the user to post HTML markup or even Javascript code in posts, pages or comments.

    Note: Enabling this option for non-privileged users may result in their posting malicious code to your blog.

    I'm looking for a role manager plugin right now so I can add this unfiltered_html option to author accounts (they are already on blog owner and editor accounts).
