I have a very perplexing problem. That is defying an easy answer. My problem occurs when I attempt to copy and paste anything into the post or page editor of WordPress. The situation arises every time I save or attempt to preview an item that has been copied into the text editor from any document.
I like to create my post and pages in Word and then copy and paste them into WordPress. This works well on my other WP site but not this new install. I have used text editors to strip out formatting. I have also used the text editor copy and paste feature within WordPress but nothing works.
Here’s some background. I first installed WordPress through Bluehost. But that's when I discovered the problem. I then reinstalled WP through BlueHost. This did nothing to resolve the issue. I then downloaded WordPress and uploaded it to BlueHost.
I tried using the 20/10 theme. Then I tried using the Genesis Framework theme. I also tried using the Genesis Framework with the Prose child theme. The problem would occur each and every time.
I should note here that all plugins are turned off while attempting to create a post.
Now, if I manually type in the post through the WordPress everything works well as it should.
I also should note that the text that appears in the text box only fills up about 65% of the box from left to right. It does not extend completely to the right side of the box before it text wraps to a new line. It makes no difference if I manually type in the text or copy into the text box.
I have been working on this problem for about a week and could use any help available.
