IMG and DIVs Stripped with External Posting Since WP 2 Upgr (Delicious/MarsEdit) (5 posts)

    Since I have upgraded to WordPress 2.0 (and to the K2 Beta Two theme), I have found an alarming "symptom." It appears that incoming posts from an external source -- either an external weblog editor such as MarsEdit (a popular Mac OS X blogging client) or from Del.Icio.Us' automatic daily blog post -- have information stripped from their tags.

    For example, from MarsEdit, I posted a weblog post that had an image. When I looked at it, instead of being posted as:

    [IMG SRC="http://www.blah.com/blah.jpg"]

    It had instead posted as:

    [IMG /]

    And, in a somewhat similar mechanism, when del.icio.us automatically posts its information, instead of posting as it usually does:

    [ul class="delicious"]
    [div class="delicious-link"]
    [div class="delicious-extended"]
    [div class="delicious-tags"]

    these instead appear as:


    Please note that in the latter case, there were the appropriate closing tags.

    I would imagine that this probably has something to do with WordPress' XML interface, or with an obscure setting I need to switch.

    Can anyone suggest to me what needs fixing here?

    I've deactivated all my plugins -- it still posts this way to WordPress's main database.

    I've switched themes -- same problem.

    I compared my blog's version of xmlrpc.php with a fresh install -- identical.

    Nothing left to eliminate, as far as I can tell.

    Anyone? How the hell do I get this solved if no one's willing to help? Is there any way to consult, file a bug, do SOMETHING to get this fixed?!?!?

    I've got the div class issue figured out. In a nutshell, edit kses.php.

    To make img tags work, add a space and close the tag.

    CSS attributes also get stripped off when you post from flickr
    It never happens with WordPress 5.1
