"About Yourself" aka "About the user" field removes formatting (5 posts)

    When you save the info in this field, the paragraph markers are removed. That leaves any page that calls this info (like the author.php page) with a bunch of hard-to-read text.

    Why are links and bold, italic, etc. preserved, but paragraph markers removed. Is there a way to get them back? My author bios look stupid.

    Umm... dupe?

    Did you see the response here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/111864?replies=5

    Yes, the response doesn't work as far as I can tell, as per my response to the response. :) I tried a number of things I got from other sources, too.

    So, I'm putting this in the "Request and Feedback" folder (as opposed to the "How-To and Troubleshooting" folder that the other is in) in hopes that it can be addressed at some point.

  4. Please stop posting the same question in multiple threads. Everybody will see it no matter what section you post in.

    I'm sorry. I thought the "Requests and Feedback" was for, well, "Requests and Feedback." It appears--from the title--that this area would be one where the WP programmers would look for implementation ideas or for future development. So, I was hoping that future versions might include the ability to add HTML in the "About Yourself" field.

    I was unaware it was inappropriate to leave feedback about something I had already requested assistance with elsewhere.

    Again, my apologies for the inconvenience.
