You are always my first resource with all things NING.. however, I did post this question on creators... My site is a site for you know various writers.... it used to be no problem to embed a song into a blog page. Now it doesn't work... is there any work around for this..? Your help is greatly appreciated!
I read your discussion Creators. A link like you provided should have never worked on Ning or any site. You need the actual embed code if that exists. Only problem, not sure the Blog module accepts embedded code. Youtube would be a good test.
I wondered about that, thought you were a designer/coder. =) I thought Ning took away the ability to add embedded code/script into our blog pages, except by Admins. I stay confused on where code is allowed/disallowed, and always have to test it as a regular member to be reminded.

Maybe the code you're using is different, not sure. I would try YouTube code just to see. Ning needs to fix the iFrame code bug in 3.0. I'll copy/paste this answer to Creators, too.
It does allow you tube embedded code through the media upload function... Here is where I run into a problem...
These people write their blogs in HTML so they can post it in different places. So when they take their HTML and put it into the NING 2.0 HTML blog editor... It's player shows but the file is blank and doesn't play anything. I am pretty sure You tube videos isn't a problem these are audio files uploaded to a server. (basically just grans the link to play it within the player) I don't think NING is allowing that in the blog editor section for members... Pages can produce this.. but I don't allow members to create pages for their personal stuff on my network obviously. LOL ... Ooh that would be a mess.
Anyhow, that's the nitty gritty of it... Just kind of weird they changed that... it wasn't a great change for me and my members personally.... I hope there is a way I can find a solution around it.
That is odd. Hope you get it worked out.
