    ive attached this same code in the post above and as you can see its nowhere to be found, the only site that seems to work with embedding is youtube is this true?

    It might just be htmlpurifier (enable by default on v2) that disables this.

    @luc well i kno for a fact thats the source of the problem however would u happen to know how to edit the purifier to get this working?

    In your config.php file add the lines:
    $Configuration['HtmlPurifier']['HTML']['SafeObject'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['HtmlPurifier']['HTML']['SafeEmbed'] = TRUE;

    @garymardell worked like a charm thanks alot gary! check ur inbox when u have a moment
  • Stuff like this should go in the main documentation...
  • Right now I think the v2 docs are more for programmers than end-users. This kind of info might belong better in an end-user FAQ section.
  • Unless you really want a plugin called Enable Embedding, i could just add in a second.
