Support » Fixing WordPress » IE 11 & Edge Adding Empty Paragraphs in Editor

  • I have been searching around and this seems to be a fairly unique issue that we’re experiencing.

    When making edits to a Custom Post Type while using IE 11 and Edge, within our company’s network, extra empty paragraphs are being added automatically after clicking update. These will be added to the editor as well as custom fields we have set up.

    I will go back in to remove the extra empty paragraphs which will then revert back after the new save and also, sometimes, add more to the affected areas.

    The only way to fix this is to go into the site using another browser (Chrome, FireFox, Safari – all tested) and remove them again and then they do not reappear.

    The strange thing is this does not seem to happen when using Edge out of our network. I have not been unable to test IE 11 outside the network as I do not have access to a machine with IE 11 capabilities.

    I have set up a test site on a copy of the same server and environment in which I’ve recreated the issue. I’ve then disabled all plugin’s and have ruled them out. All plugins and core are up to date. The theme is custom but this issue just started sometime between last Friday and this Monday, in which time no plugins or core or theme updates have been made.

    Has anyone ever ran into this issue or have any suggestions as to what may be causing this? And, before you say it, we just simply cannot just not use IE. We’re a fairly large company and that’s just the browser we unfortunately use. I know, I too wish we would just move to Chrome or anything else.

    Thank you in advance!

    UPDATE: I’ve bandaged this by using the following jQuery to remove paragraph tags with inside of it, however, I am still searching as to why in the editor additional line entries are being created and present.

    ` $(‘p’).each(function() {
    var $this = $(this);
    if($this.html().replace(/\s| /g, ”).length == 0)
    $this.remove(); }); `
