    Hi,

    I am using BBPRESS for my website, I checked this option from backend:

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

    but only administrator can embed youtube and other embed just reflect the IFRAME code.

    can you help what I am missing, I need it to be allowed for CONTRIBUTORS to embed the youtube embed code.

    Thanks Sanny

    Just place the url of the video and it should automatically embed.

    as long as you have embed media checked

    and also a full hyperlink from youtube.

    then it should work.

    did you add the iframe code into ‘text editor’?
    it won’t work if you put it into ‘visual’ tab

    i found it somewhere on the web that users cannot use iframe code because wordpress prohibits it for the sake of security. -it says that – if they r allowed to use iframe codes, they might be able to attack you –
