A feature I love using and sharing in WordPress is the ability to embed media from flickr, YouTube, etc via a plain URL on a blank line.
But it seems that some themes automatically convert URLs to hyperlinks, which then break the embed. I am using the I2 theme on a site where we are asking people to post tributes by email, and the URLs on a blank line end up as links.
On my self hosted WP sites, I know how to de-activate that, but cannot do that of course on WP.com
Shouldn't themes or WP have a setting to turn off the autolinking of URLs? or can the autoembed functionality be modified to manage URLs that have been made links?
These features seem to conflict with each other.
