    When getting the term description the paragraphs that have been added by hitting “return” in the wysiwyg are not included. I would expect them to be as this is how it works for posts and pages.

    Can I ask which method you are using to obtain the term description?

    In taxonomy-{slug}.php

    global $wp_query;
    $term = $wp_query->get_queried_object();

    then

    <?php echo $term->description; ?>

    Apparently that strips the <br>. Solution below for those who come looking. Didn’t find it the last time I tried. Thanks Shea.

    solution: term_description($term->term_id)

    Yes, good catch. $term->description will return the raw term description text, without any of the usual WordPress text formatting functions applied.

    The term_description() function will retrieve the description with proper formatting.
