Standard Editor changed? (3 posts)

    I use RC3 WordPressMU

    After a few days of testing and tweaking I believe that the standard editor is not the same anymore, I don't know when it changed and why.
    To use a plugin very essential to what i'm doing with video I need the standard editor to save something like this;

    onclick="vPIPPlay(this, 'name=july4us', '', 'active=true, caption=july4us'); return false;">
    Play Quicktime version

    However it strips(removes) syntax like active=true, type= onclick= and that sort of things. Therefore the plugin does not work anymore.

    The same syntax I use in a standalone WP will leave the syntax in place hence the plugin works.

    I realy need the "old" standard editor.

    Disired way here;

    After you click the picture it will popup the video and dim the background. (Like the lightbox picture plugin)

    Wrong way here

    If you look in the source-code you will see the difference.

    That's kses, it strips Javascript for security reasons. You could write a plugin that interprets code and inserts the Javascript when your blog is displayed:
    [vPIPPlay name='' description=''] which would expand out to your code when the post was displayed. That's how youtube and google video works on

    Thanks Doncha.

    This makes indeed more sense, I could not figure out why it would work in a non MU version. Is the single user version going the same way with stripping the code?

    I did try a plugin named named "text control" and that did not work for my purpose either buy I know why now.

    In the meantime I use a media-player from this link;
    You need to change the header.php but then it works automagicaly and plays a video with the same size as the
    picture link.
    It can play MOV, MP4, M4V, M4A,AVI, MP3, WAV, AU, OGG, M3U.
    It autodetects the media and only needs the link in a post very clean and easy for users.


    It does not hurt if you leave a comment (HINT!)on that blog or better vlog as it is a video-log.

    Now I have to figure out the best flash player.
