Support » Fixing WordPress » Biographical Information cannot contain image tags

  • Resolved mike


    I am trying to add biographical information to a user’s profile that includes the <img … /> tag, but it keeps getting stripped (I assume strip_tags() is doing it). Why can’t I add images to the biographical information section? I really don’t want to edit core files or write a plugin.

  • Anyone? I don’t think that this is a bug, but it would be nice if one could include images in the bio field for users. I remember years ago when a response on this board took 5 mins.

    And I rememeber that it has been posted N+1 times: you cannot use html tags in the user profile. Period. That’s how it was done by the devs.

    There is a slight chance that somebody figured out a solution and, eventually, posted it to the forum – but you will have to search for it.

    Thanks for the reply. However, you can put in “a” tags and italics, so there must be an explicit setting for images. I will check the core files for the line of code.

    I believe that this can be modified by messing with the global variable $allowedtags in kses.php. Any help with this so that I don’t have to mess with core files? I can’t find a plugin that does it (yes, I searched!)

    Solution (though ugly):

    – download
    – add an extra field called “FULLBIO”
    – turn on the get_cimy function
    – add the following in your template:

    if(is_single()) { echo "<hr>"; echo get_cimyFieldValue(get_the_author_ID(), 'FULLBIO'); echo "<br /><br />";}
