Reusable content and Blackboard automatically modifying HTML

Question asked by mh36038 on Nov 2, 2015

Just wondering if there is any way to stop Blackboard Learn from modifying the HTML of a reusable object?  For example if I were to use the following code within a reusable object, it would automatically apply a default width and height (<p><iframe width="320" height="240" src="example.html"></iframe></p>).


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">



<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<style type="text/css">

iframe {

width: 300px;

height: 150px;





<p><iframe src="example.html"></iframe></p>




Now for this example I know it is not really an issue, however I am finding that valid html is being changed if it does not comply to Blackboard standards. For testing purposes I disabled the safe HTML filter however I am still getting the same result.


The easy solution would be to use a html file and upload it to the content collection, however I require the functionality of reusable objects.  Does anyone know how to add exceptions to the validation rules?
