So I’ve been working on rolling some shortcodes into one of my themes recently, and have run into this issue.
I type out the shortcode in the Visual Editor. No problem.
[shortcode att1="value1" class="some-class"]
I select it, copy it, and paste it on to another line.
BOOM! The attribute “class” is gone from sight, but the other attributes are still there.
Is there something going on here behind the scenes when I paste it? Because if I then paste it into a plain-text editor, it copies the shortcode, including all attributes like it should.
What’s up with this? TinyMCE Bug, or am I missing something here?
This happens even on a fresh install of WordPress 3.5.1 with the default theme and no plugins activated, and on multiple different servers, accessed using multiple browsers.
I know this can be avoided by using a different attribute name, but I’m curious as to why it does this. Can’t seem to find anything on it.
