HTML Purifier strips non standard protocol links such as rtsp


    • Type: Bug

      When upgrading a site from 2.1 to 2.2, we find that the HTML Purifier setting is no longer listed in Site Policies. Un-checking this setting was allowing us to access to thousands of video links on our site, which were created as in-line text links inside Glossary entries (essentially forming a video library).

      The streaming links (both Quicktime and Flash) are stripped during the HTML Purification process to just <a>tagged words like this</a>. When we un-check the setting in 2.1, the full links are returned. The Enable Trusted Content setting is on, and so is the Embed/Object tag setting.

      With the setting gone in 2.2, we are facing a huge content access problem.

      Can anyone describe why the setting was removed, and/or let me know if this is something that can be brought back? If not, what can I do to ensure that my links are not cleaned? Thanks so much for your help!
