Support » Plugin: Simple Drop Cap » Installed 1.2.6 and Drop Cap broke

    Initially when I updated to 1.2.6 I had WP 3.9.2 or something like that. The drop cap immediately broke. Instead it inserts drop cap code into the caption area of the leading graphic on the actual post page. On the presentation page the drop cap just went away and the text is just normal size.

    I thought perhaps it was my older version of WP so I backed up the DB and upgraded to WP4.2.2. Drop Cap behaves the same as above.

    I have deactivated it for now but I can post a screen shot if you like. You were very helpful when I fist installed this long ago. Hoping you can fix it.

    Hi Heather,

    In version 1.2.6, the wpautop filter is removed because it changed default WP behavior so that it will be conflicted with other plugins. In your case, there might be code in the plugins or theme you are using that change wpautop filter priority.

    So, try to put this code add_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop', 9 ); in your active theme’s functions.php file. Please be careful because if functions.php is edited wrongly, your site will break.

    Thanks Mauris. I don’t have time to do it right now but I will soon and let you know. Thanks for the fast reply!

    OK, I added the line and reactivated the plugin with no change in behavior at all. Any other ideas?

    Please deactivate the plugin for the moment. I will try to investigate and fix it tomorrow.

    Will do, thank you!

    Please update the plugin to the latest version and make sure your first paragraph is put on new line on the text tab of the post editor.

    Let me know if it works.

    Thanks,
    Mauris

    Yay! Works on all post pages. Thank you so much! Please remind me, was there some reason it isn’t meant to work on the presentation page? It isn’t totally necessary but it would look nice if it did. Still, all good!

    If you want to see what I mean, my sight is vestigegoods.com.

    Thx,

    It should work on posts and pages. If it’s custom post, it may doesn’t work.
