Advanced Custom Fields
Line breaks being added to custom fields (1 post)

    I'm using WP All Import to bring in posts and assign custom fields for those posts. In every custom field that uses a text box of WYSIWYG box, there are tags being added. Lists now have <br> in between all <li> tags. There is a <br> after every <p> now. I thought maybe if I altered the XML file that I was importing to have everything on one line, instead of each <li> on it's own line, the problem would be solved, but it's still persisting. In the actual text box or WYSIWYG box, the HTML looks fine, no line breaks, but when I view the content on the front end, that's when the line breaks appear.

    I'm using a custom theme, one that I use for all sites I develop. I am no stranger to the ACF plugin, I've used it on many websites. But this is the first time I have experienced the problem with the <br> tags.

    Any insight into this? I'm using version 4.3.7 of the plugin, so it's not entirely out of date (I know there is a minor update, but I haven't updated it just yet).
