Subscribers not able to publish Flickr HTML codes

    Hello,

    My users are not able to publish photographs in the forum by embeeding their flickr html code into new threads ( it looks like bbpress deletes the html code ). Example of the code :

    <a href=”http://www.flickr.com/photos/josue_arzate/7982828578/” title=”Milpa Alta por Josué Arzate Ontiveros, en Flickr”><img src=”http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8036/7982828578_9b9bd93c21.jpg” width=”500″ height=”332″ alt=”Milpa Alta”></a>

    I have “Embed media (YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, etc…) directly into topics and replies.” checked.

    The code embeeds perfectly when I do it (administrator) but is not working with my users.

    Does anyone knows how can I fix this?

    Thank you for your help,
    Luciano

  • Embed Media means you don’t have to copy all of that HTML to post an image. It should be enough to just paste the link the the relevant image or video. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds.

    As an admin on your site, you have the ability to post unfiltered HTML. There should be a warning above the post box that says this.

    Regular user’s HTML is filtered to prevent malicious code from peeking through, and it’s possible images and/or specific attributes aren’t allowed on your installation, and they are getting filtered out.

    Thank you for your responses but I haven´t been able to fix the problem yet.

    Unfortunatelly the embeeding is not working even using just the image or video url. It is only showing hyperlinks to the URLs.

    As suggested by the codex embeds page I used the [embed]…[/embed] shortcodes with the same results.

    By the way, I have wordpress “Auto-embeds” and bbpress “Auto-embed Links” checked

    Any other idea on how to fix this problem?

    if necesary you can use this test user:Username: ricardo2012

    *** UPDATE ***

    I was able to fix it. My problem was I was pasting the URLs in visual mode and wordpress converted it in hyperlinks. Pasting the URL in HTML mode fixes the problem.

    Thank you for your help,
    Luciano
