[resolved] Formatting issues since upgrade to 2.1 (9 posts)

    I recently upgraded my WordPress version to 2.1 and since then none of the formats in my posts seem to work properly.

    I used to have a standard way to set out my posts with text, a centered image, a <more> tag and then the rest of my text (not centered). Since upgrading none of this works. My images will no longer allow me to center them and the text will not allow me to place it underneath an image. You'll see what I mean if you look at any of my posts.

    I also noticed that when I turn off the WYSIWYG editor and look at the code that the <p> tags are being dropped in my posts. It doesn't matter if I apply them manually they are always dropped.. I guess these problems are related. I tried installing and using an alternative WYSIWYG plugin but this made no difference and so now I have disabled this plugin and have gone back to using the in-built version.

    Any ideas as to how I can fix this? This issue doesn't seem to have affected everyone who has upgraded.

    I've just upgraded and am experiencing the same thing. My rich text editor appears not to be working as before, i.e. it's dropping </p> tags and refusing to render block-level <div> tags.

    Take a look at this post


    I have applied the following patch


    This will act as a pseudo fix allowing you to apply DIV tags manually but beware as if you try and re-edit the post your DIV tags will be replaced automatically by P tags once more.

    Really infuriating but it'll need to do until they issue a fix as I'm a complete novice messing with code and I don't want to mess things up completely.

    If anyone has any better ideas as to how to prevent the DIVs being replaced on modification of a post I would really appreciate the pointers.

    Scratch my last post, although the patch will allow current post to be fixed it messed with all of the older posts so this isn't really a pseudo fix after all.

    Thanks anyway posiesplace. I've had to switch off the visual editor and write code manually. This allows me to add <div>s but still it adds rogue <p> tags which is messing with my img styling.

    I tried that but things still look messed up!

    the rogue tags are killing me too. i've happily been using some code to create thumbnails but since the upgrade to 2.1, wordpress is adding <p> tags in places they i have coded it to.

    any suggestions, this is my post on the issue:

    My install of 2.1 was adding stupid P tags in places in shouldnt.

    But thankfully, I found this post:
