Editor button that "unembeds" all of your content?

Hi,

Sometimes our users post too much content in one post and it doesn't load on some old browsers. We'd like a button that can "unembed" all of your content in your post, programmatically. A button that can just run all the content of your post through, say, JavaScript or some other scripting language that can replace all the oEmbed links with normal links, that would be perfect. It doesn't even need to do exactly that, I can write the JavaScript myself, but I just don't know how to ... add such a button to the editor?

I would be willing to pay a developer to develop something like this, if it's not currently available. It's quite important for our site. So if nothing is available, I would love to know the proper channel to request this if possible 🙂

 

Thanks!

PH

I doubt there is an easy way to achieve this, since the original links aren’t saved. It’s just a block of HTML saved in the database. One would probably have to code a separate detection algorithm for every external source to turn it back into a link. 

I have a code that does this in Python, but I can't ask the users to use it every time. I just want a button that just runs any type of scripting language on the entire post content, is that possible?

Bump, I'd be interested in how at all to process the HTML. I already do it in Python but i have to copy and paste the source and run it with Python code. Our users don't have access to the source so they can't do that. Any way we could do it with a button?
