Support » Fixing WordPress » IMG and DIVs Stripped with External Posting Since WP 2 Upgr (Delicious/MarsEdit)

  • 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=””]

    It had instead posted as:

    [IMG /]

    And, in a somewhat similar mechanism, when 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?

  • Bump.

    Please, help me, folks, I desperately need your assistance on this one!

    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.

    For more detail, read my post about it.
