Is there an easy way to insert hr tag in posts? (5 posts)

    I'm running multisites, some users would like to insert a line in their posts, but I don't like to tell them to switch to HTML mode and add the <hr /> tag everytime they need it.

    So is there an easy way to do this, any plugin, or another way of adding a horizontal line rather than the hr tag?

    I would suggest creating a ShortCode that simply outputs "<hr />".

    I prefer the Shortcode Exec PHP plug-in for creating shortcodes (and php, in general) because of its high level of security. With it, the entire definition would be return '<hr />';

    Your users would simply type [line] or whatever you choose to call the shortcode.

    As for my discussion of hr tags, I don't exactly know why, but I had one Page of my site containing the hr tag twice that looked odd when I switched to Theme Twenty Eleven a few days ago. Other pages with hr worked fine.

    Just a Heads Up.

    As for Shortcode Exec PHP plug-in, I am still a huge fan!
