Creating code which is not there (4 posts)

    Hi wordpress,
    fabulous script, I love it, first bug I've found is:
    I am editing a page and have toggled the HTML tab so I can input html. I have two divs, one float left, one float right, they should sit side by side. At the bottom I have this code:
    <br class="clearBoth">
    This break is on the same line as the end div tag of the previous div, so there is no line break.
    WordPress however changes that to
    <p> <br class+"clearBoth"> </p>

    thus adding space and a paragraph where there should be none. Why is WordPress putting the paragraph tag in, and how can I stop it from doing that??
    Also, maybe someone should add the latest version (2.7) to the version drop down menu...

    By default, WordPress formats post text with the wpautop() function, which adds paragraph tags. There are a number of plugins that allow you to control wpautop and the other formatting functions (just google it), or you can remove wpautop() with the following line:

    remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');

    Thanks, where would I put that line of code
    remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');

    In a plugin or in your theme's functions.php file.
