FeedWordPress
Formatting stripped (5 posts)

    I have a number of sources (from the same WP installation in a multi-site set-up) pulling, with the 'Permalinks point to: The local copy on this website' setting chosen.

    On the 'local copy' of the post, the paragraph breaks are stripped.

    See original post at:
    https://news.ok.ubc.ca/2011/04/29/ubc-honours-outstanding-teachers-in-biology-engineering-and-sociology/

    and syndicated copy at:
    https://news.ok.ubc.ca/engineering/2011/04/29/ubc-honours-outstanding-teachers-in-biology-engineering-and-sociology/

    Note that when I view the post in Edit mode (Visual mode) the paragraph breaks are retained.

    If I manually wrap the paragraphs with <p>...</p> in HTML mode, the issue is solved. (This obviously isn't something I want to do for every new post that is pulled in by the syndication manager...)

    Thoughts on how this can be rectified?

    Thank you!

    I have same problem. The paragraph formatting is not working even if I copy and paste manually from a site which worked before.

    The enter key that separates the paragraphs does not work either. Of course, it could be a WordPress issue too.

    Getting desperate! Hope a solution is on the way.

    This is definitely the FeedWordPress bug.

    If you first inactivate the plugin and then just open each post and save it as it is, the problem will be solved. Of course, this is a temporary solution until an update is available.

    You shouldn't need to change the post with tags or alike.
    Please inform the author on his website.

    The plugin breaks wordpress galleries and only the shortcode is displayed intead of images. I believe it's a result of same issue that mentioned above.

    Any word on when this will be fixed? It's super important to something I'm working on. I'm guessing the plugin author needs to send the content through wpautop automatically?
