    With Ultimate TinyMCE installed, I cannot switch from the visual to the HTML tab in WordPress Editor.

    Hmm, First I have heard of this issue.

    Do you have any other TinyMCE plugins installed? This problem can perhaps occur when two functions are "competing" for the same result.

    Note: Using the plugin, there is a button for pulling up the HTML of the page. This way, your code does not get mangled when switching between Visual and HTML modes.

    However, we still need to get the issue resolved.

    Also, have you tried using a different browser?

    Hey Josh- Thanks for the fast reply. It's only happening on one page, and your built-in HTML button doesn't work on that page either (comes up blank). I'm using chrome, but will try firefox and let you know if there's any change. The page is here. As you can see, I was trying to build an index using your anchor buttons, but the jam-up is holding me back.

    @Josh- Same problem in firefox. This page has a Youtube video embedded. I can take it out and see if that's the problem?

    Yep- it's this Youtube code: <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/gKV0ARbKP-w" frameborder="0" width="420" height="315"></iframe> How can I embed that without having it fight with your plugin?

    Try using the "Insert/Embed Media" button located on the far right of the bottom row. Choose "iFrame" from the dropdown, and insert your youtube url into the url box. Lastly, set your dimensions.

    Or did you use this button to insert the code originally?

    Hey Josh-

    I tried inserting the video using your button and choosing "iFrame" but it didn't insert anything, so I inserted it directly into HTML. this is still a problem, because WP editor for that page is still not responding unless I delete that video, so any time I want to edit that page, I have to take the video out first, then re-insert.

    Okay. I'm working on replicating the problem now. Be patient with me while I work this out.

    No rush, Josh. I'm just glad I found your plugin- I was just looking for a plugin to add anchors, but yours does so many other things I've always wanted!

    Post back your results!

    I haven't given up on this. In fact, I am making progress. I know it's a conflict using the 'embed' and 'object' tags. There is a way to have to have the editor not strip these tags, but the trick is getting it to work from the plugin. Will post back again with new results.

    I checked your page above and LOVE your use of anchors. I'm going to link to you from my blog page, if you don't mind, showing it as an example of what you can do.

    Thanks, Josh! It's one of the most useful plugins I've found, and well supported- don't know where you find the time!

    Check out the use of anchors created with your plugin in a floating sidebar (Strx floating sidebar plugin) here!

    Okay, I have made a workaround for adding iframes with the editor.

    This is addressed in version 1.5.5. I just posted the update, so it'll take a few minutes to filter down to your upgrade section.

    This is explained in detail in my supporting Microsoft Word documentation found in the settings page in the admin panel.

    If you have any trouble following this, or if you find this works for you, please let me know!

    - Josh

    I haven't forgotten, Josh, just haven't had time. Still can't switch tabs after the update, but I will try inserting the iframe through the plugin and let you know if that changes anything.

    I tried inserting the iframe using the plugin's insert/edit embedded media tool, and no joy.

    Did you read the word document I made for the plugin? You can download it from the plugin settings page, on the right hand side.

    Read toward the end of the document about inserting iframes.

    Please let me know if this works for you.

    Josh- The fix you describe in your document works perfectly. Thank you! Sorry it took me so long to get to it. Ultimate TinyMCE is a super plugin by a super author!

    I'll mark this thread resolved.

    Excellent. Glad we got it resolved.

    I'm working on making the plugin "cleaner". I think that last media embed button is not going to work as it should. I've tried tweaking the code, but I'm limited what code I can change in the tinymce core files in the main wordpress installation.

    So, a few of the "bugs" I've had to learn to live with. And I need to address this somehow in the documentation.

    However... there is always a workaround ;)

    Thanks again for bringing this to my attention... and for the kind words!
