Latest version destroying data -- horrifying (9 posts)

    I've used and recommended this plugin a ton, and has mostly been a big help.

    But I like others have stumbled upon a buggy update, and this is literally the worst thing that a plugin can do to a WordPress site. It's data that is not unrecoverable thanks to revisions, but this is still totally unacceptable to destroy data.

    1) Switching between languages erases data
    2) Update erases data

    Look at this screencast (.mov only, sorry)

    Version 2.5.28 on WordPress 3.3.1.

    Didn't work for me though...
    Maybe someone got an other solution?

    Adding this code to function .php worked for me

    function cbnet_tinymce_config( $init ) {
    
    // Don't remove line breaks
    $init['remove_linebreaks'] = false;
    // Convert newline characters to BR tags
    $init['convert_newlines_to_brs'] = true;
    // Do not remove redundant BR tags
    $init['remove_redundant_brs'] = false;
    
    // Pass $init back to WordPress
    return $init;
    }
    add_filter('tiny_mce_before_init', 'cbnet_tinymce_config');

    If you have this problem you should list all your other plugins (if any). I've noticed a similar problem if qTranslate is used together with Magic Fields 2, but qTranslate alone doesn't produces this for me.

    Conflicting plugins are really hard to debug, so please test if you experience this with only qTranslate enabled, and also try to pinpoint which plugin combinations are causing this.

    @Loulou78 - work perfectly doesn't mean translates perfectly
