    Hi guys,

    I encountered a weird bug in WP 2.0

    I have several writers set as Author.
    When they try to save a post with the tags <center></center> in it, it doesnt save the tag.
    Same for the embed tag of youtube video for example.
    When they hit save or save and continue editing, the tag disapear.

    It does work for me as an admin.

    Any suggestions on that one?

    They probably need to turn off the rich text editor. It mangles/strips a lot of code.

    I believe there's a plugin you need in order to embed the youtube code... i'm not sure exactly what it is - but try searching for something like "embedding scripts in posts"...

    Hi Ladydelaluna,

    Actually, it does for me as an admin. I dont understand why it doesnt work for the authors.

    No i'm not running PHP plugin. Is that important?

    Even with a very simple tag, it doesnt work.

    For example one of my author wrote :


    When he saves the note, the center tag disapear.

    well we're talking about two different things here...

    the <center>hello</center> thing and the thing about embedding youtube videos.

    i'm not sure why your author can't center text, but it usually depends on which of the two types of editors they're using (either the rich-text or the plain-text), so I'm lost on that one.

    as far as the youtube thing goes, i'm guessing it has to do with the permissions of an author versus the permissions of you, the admin. You can try this role manager plugin here: http://asymptomatic.net/2005/12/31/2189/role-manager-plugin/ and see if maybe there's something you can do that your authors can't, that can be fixed with this plugin.

    I had a similar problem like that with <center>hello</center>, see http://wordpress.org/support/topic/68577#post-361786.

    I gave the plugin mentioned in the previous post a try and it works like a charme!

    You need to install and activate the plugin, go to "Users", "Roles" and add the permission "Unfiltered Html" to the role "Authors".

    Thank you both!
