Content Filtering

The WordPress Visual Editor and Text Editor both have features built in to filter content and remove undesired tags. If your code is disappearing, it is most likely NOT on the list of Allowed HTML Tags. If you require HTML that is not on the approved list, or need custom CSS or javascript on a page, it must be added by an admin (Web Services & Web Interns).

Blocked HTML Tags

The following tags may only be used by site admins (Web Services). Site admins MUST save code containing these tags inside of a Custom HTML Widget to prevent code form being deleted when an editor edits the page.

  • iframe
  • style
  • script
  • canvas
