Trust me when I edit HTML

    i support this simply because I never use the fancy-whatever-its-called editor because it is too clumsy in trying to implement what i want.

    I use the wysiwyg editor because most of the time it is a real timesaver.

    BUT I agree, changing html in the code tab shouldn't be corrected, even is the post is edited AGAIN with the wysiwyg-editor.

    I am a teacher and use WordPress for our schoolhomepage. A lot of content is written from people without knowlede of html. So wysiwyg is needed.
    Sometimes I add some html-code for them. Pages are updated a lot and I have to make changes again and again.

    also... if there was any way to STOP the rich text editor from accepting MS Word formatting... for my clients afraid of the code editor... that would be icing on the cake.

    Another vote for "let me hang myself" .... it is a pia to clean out all that formatting in a way that is update-friendly, or doesn't interact with other random plugins for ungodly reasons.

    Oh yesssss please. HTML edit should be just that, no interference after the fact.

    It's as simple as adding an option to turn off HTML cleanup in the admin panel. You can currently do this by manually editing the js code for the TinyMCE editor and messing with the wpautop settings, but editing this code is much more likely to break something than invalid HTML.

    This has bugged the crap out of me for a long time, so I decided to write a plug-in to fix it.

    Here's a link to what I came up with:

    Trustworthy XHTML

    It's a combination of a hacked version of wpautop() and some controls on TinyMCE that allow for less auto-formatting, including one level that disables them entirely. I also included the ability to have different users have different levels of auto-formatting, as well as let the admin decide which Roles will get to choose their own levels.

    I wrote it using a test blog updated to v2.3.1, in case anyone is curious, and it makes use of

    Hope this helps!

    I've implemented a solution on my site that seems to have done a pretty good job of accomplishing this. Of course, it shouldn't be so hard, but it is what it is.

    First things first, go into /wp-includes/js and delete or rename the tinymce folder. That disables the built-in wysiwyg editor altogether. Then install the xinha4wp (http://baptiste.us/plugins/xinha4wp/) and disable wp-autop (http://urbangiraffe.com/plugins/disable-wpautop/) plugins.

    I then used Role Manager to allow posting unfiltered HTML. At this point, I think all of WordPress' auto-break-my-html features have been disabled.
