Allowing Unfiltered HTML for WordPress Editors

In a WordPress Network site, Editors are prevented from being able to edit html. This is for security in case that Editor should not have capabilities outside of their own site.  If the Editor user is trusted, then use the code below in your theme’s functions file to allow them to modify iframe or other html embeds:

function add_unfiltered_html_capability( $caps, $cap, $user_id ) {
	if ( 'unfiltered_html' === $cap && user_can( $user_id, 'editor' ) ) {
		$caps = array( 'unfiltered_html' );
	return $caps;
add_filter( 'map_meta_cap', 'add_unfiltered_html_capability', 1, 3 );
