I have created a template and am trying to match the posting style to that of my old news script. The problem I am having is that whenever the php is rendered, I end up with a < p > tag at the beginning of my content. I did not include a < p > tag in my theme's index.php, yet it renders it without fail. I assume that this < p > tag is somehwere in the filter_content subroutine? I can't find it anywhere to get rid of it. It dosent seem to make it to the DB. I used phpMyAdmin to look at all my posts, none of them contain the tag in question. Weird. It's pretty annoying, I have everything else exactly the way I want it.
