I just found out that editors are not allowed to post iframes (e.g. YouTube videos). Is it possible to allow it somehow? I use WP Multisite.


try the iframe shortcode plugin


Embed iframe using shortcode [iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/819138" width="100%" height="480"]

ps: you can also use the default oembed shortcode:

[embed width="123" height="456"]...[/embed]

it supports YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Flickr, Twitter, ... and more.


[embed width="600" height="456"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTDNLUzjkpg[/embed]
