Captions disappearing (3 posts)

    Ever since I upgraded to 3.4.1 I've been having a problem with my image captions not appearing.

    If I insert the image while in Visual mode it looks OK, but if I then click on to HTML mode, the caption shortcodes have disappeared.

    I think I might be having other issues with shortcodes as well, but it's the captions that I want to work.

    I am using Thesis. I upgraded to 1.8.5 because I was lead to believe that this might help fix this issue, but there was no change.

    Any idea what might be killing my caption shortcodes?

    Hmmmm I found *an* answer in another thread, although not a very satisfactory one.

    In this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/shortcodes-stop-working-after-341-upgrade

    There is a comment about removing a line from shortcodes.php

    I spent a lot of time looking in to it last night and it turned out to be this line of code in /wp-includes/shortcodes.php in the shortcode_parse_atts() function:

    $text = preg_replace("/[\x{00a0}\x{200b}]+/u", " ", $text);

    I did this - commented out this code. And it seems to have fixed the problem. This is a very undesirable situation though - changing core functionality.

    What's up with this?
