don't insert p and br around images when editing post in html mode

  1. Jason Lewis


    WordPress automatically adds <p> </p> around images in a post, even when the user is editing in html mode.

    I understand that wp automaticaly adds new lines for the user to make things look nice but I think if the user is editing in html mode, WP should render exactly what the user entered. It makes it very confusing trying to layout a page only to find WP is adding extra html.

    You can solve this by using a plugin like "PS Disable Auto Formatting" but I think it would be nice if there was a way to control this in wordpress by default
