Support » Networking WordPress » Filtered HTML permission with WordPress 3.0.5 Network

  • I am the “super admin” for – which is setup as a WP network (with paths for user accounts, not subdomains).

    We are having an issue with the default “admin” role of each provisioned wordpress blog. WordPress native filters for multimedia are ignored and object / embed code is stripped out of each post when a user tries to embed content from another site (youtube, etc.)

    I understand this behaviour happens to users with permissions lower than “admin”, but I’m baffled at the behaviour for administrators.

    Am I missing a simple site preference?

    Thanks in advance,

    no, you’re not missing a setting. this (multisite, formerly mu) has always done it.


    Thanks Andrea_r, I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

    My concern is not that the feature is available: (It _should_ do the oEmbed shouldn’t it?) – but that the feature does not work for my users who have admin access or lower to their multisite blogs.

    When I log in as super admin, or the root blog – the feature works for my account, but not for others.

    I assumed this was permissions based, but a user with a level of “admin” on their own blog should not have their HTML stripped out, and the oEmbed translating of media URLs should work – but doesn’t.

    Still puzzled.

    Yes, I do understand and I’ve gone around explaining it before.

    Don;t use the youtube code they give you. Put the URL all on one line all by itself. it *will* work.

    Otherwise, super admin can embed some code, while blog admins cannot. You have to allow for extra code via a plugin.

    But again, NOT for supported ones like youtube. Which, to reiterate must be like this:

    blank line here
    blank line here

    And then regualr blog admins can embed it.

    Thanks again Andrea_r,

    I’ve asked one of my users to try this on her blog in three posts:

    1. In the visual editor
    2. In the HTML editor
    3. Inserting the provided object / embed code

    It DOES work when she uses the [embed] shortcode, but not with the bare URL.


    It is my understanding that it is intended to work simply with the video URL as you’ve described. But it doesn’t.

    Thanks again for the help!

    That’s odd and shouldn’t be happening. What plugins are you running?

    Then she’ll have to stick with the embed shortcode.

    the URL works for me (and my users) as long as there is a blank line above and below it.
