WYSIWYG Editor bug (5 posts)

    For mw one of WordPress's less endearing features is the way in which the WYSIWYG editor "helpfully" removes any HTML it considers excess to requirements when you click the "Visual" tab. It can be flaming annoying when you have just spent time putting it in. An example is HTML code for an advertisement relevant to the post immediately above it.

    Thanks for your contribution to a topic that has been bandied about for months - which you apparently haven't bothered searching to find.

    It's not a bug - it's intentional. If you want to enter code manually you should use the code editor - not the visual editor. The visual editor is not designed for that and it WILL strip what it considers extraneous code from posts. Do not switch back and forth - there are dozens of posts about this.

    So this editor decides that all text has to be one big block without any white lines between it. This is what happens when I switch back and forth. Sometimes it's necessary to do so.

    I totally understand Leslie's frustration as I just came here to find a solution because this great editor ripped off a post I had worked on for several hours.

    Nice intention.

    I voted.

    It's very frustrating that I even can't decide that a effing banner has to be centered and then switching back and forth without WP having it changed to align=left.
