Hi there,
is there a way to stop the html edittor removing tags it thinks aren't good?

eg

<div style="border:2px #999 solid; padding:10px;">
<div id="fb-root">-</div>
   <fb:like href="http://www.surveystation.info/public-surveys/shopping/why-i-hate-daily-deals-sites/" send="true" width="450" show_faces="true" font="arial"></fb:like>
</div>

in this example the editor is removing the FB tag - which is facebooks tag...

also it removed empty divs, so I have to put a dash or something in there - is there a way for it not remove empty tags?

Cheers

I'm not sure if there is an easy way to do that... An alternative you could look into would be to create a shortcode

See this tutorial http://www.ssbits.com/tutorials/2010/2-4-using-short-codes-to-embed-a-youtube-video/

Then you would just write something like this into the editor

interesting.
for now, i did it by just adding the link into a text field in the CMS, and having the rest directly on the page. but the 'shortcode' method below could be more useful, as I could allow for a short code link on any page, and reuse the template.ss to style this are on lots of pages.

thanks
