Vimeo shortcode: Why do WP.com hosted blogs get it but we don't? (2 posts)

    Hi everyone!

    I had a whole lot of confusion today around Vimeo embedding, because all my searches were turning up the wordpress.com Vimeo shortcode: http://support.wordpress.com/videos/vimeo/

    But clearly the downloadable WP 2.7 doesn't support this. Why? Not even as an official plugin? I found this custom plugin: http://siarto.com/2008/10/02/vimeo-wp-plugin/ , which works, but I'm just baffled that the hosted blog would have this feature but the downloaded blog does not.

    Am I missing something? Thanks everyone! :D

    WordPress.com is a different beast entirely, running a customized version of WPMU. Quite a lot of what is on there is very custom to them specifically.
