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


<div style="border:2px #999 solid; padding:10px;">
<div id="fb-root">-</div>
<fb:like href="" send="true" width="450" show_faces="true" font="arial"></fb:like>

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?

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

Then you would just write something like this into the editor

[fblike url=]

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 to style this are on lots of pages.
