Hi, I'm using version 220.127.116.11 with Bluehost
I can't embed youtube video or slide from slideshare or document from scribd. It only show a link. But I can embed a flash object properly.
Can somebody help me out? Thanks you very much.
You can embed youtube videos just by pasting the link from the browser.
Unfortunately, slideshare and scribd embeds via iframes which open up a vector for malicious code. We have plans to whitelist external sites for embeds, but until then you can't embed those sites.
I'm looking for a solution to this very problem myself.
I need to allow my users to post google maps, which also uses iframes.
To avoid the problem with hazardous html-code, i want to use htmlawed rules to only allow iframes starting with "<iframe marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google" to be posted.
I will try to figure out how to configure htmlawed to do this, and if i'm successful, i'll make a plugin.
But right now i'm completely lost. =P
Btw. you can allow all your users to post raw html code using the AllowRawFormat plugin, but i would not recommend it.
@todd any news on the whitelist? @turblego, did you ever figure this out? Need to find a way to embed Gists from Github. Have had no success trying to create a filter

It would be great if we could embed slideshare files.
