I would like to set the tinymce config to

valid_elements: "*[ * ]"

I used to do this in /cms/javascript/tinymce.template.js and it then usually allowed HTML code that was otherwise restricted such as YouTube or Vimeo embedded videos.

I noticed that the TinyMCE config changed now with the HTMLEditorConfig class and so I tried this instead in /mysite/_config.php:

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('valid_elements', '*[ * ]');

I also tried

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('verify_html', 'false');

But it doesn't change. The browser cache is cleared, but something doesn't work yet, e.g. I can't add an <acronym> tag.

If anyone has an idea I would be keen to hear it.
