Support » Plugin: Classic Editor » P and BR tags for no reason

  • Resolved chayton


    I love the fact that I can go back to the classic editor. I normally just use the html editor because it’s easier for me to see what I’m doing.

    I’ve noticed that I’ve had a bit of an issue now with line breaks and empty p tags appearing where they shouldn’t be. Even if I write in my p tags with no spaces in the html editor like this:

    <p>This is the first paragraph.</p><p>This is the second paragraph.</p><p>Third paragraph.</p>

    When I view it on the front end of the site it’s sticking <br> tags between each paragraph. Is anyone else getting that? Driving me bonkers.

    Hmmm, sounds like there is some code somewhere that tweaks how autop works. It never inserts <br> tags before or after <p>. Actually on e of its functions is to remove them. Perhaps “standard” plugins and theme troubleshooting is in order: disable one by one until you get to the culprit…

    You’re right, it’s actually the theme causing it. I’ll have to dig in to their functions and see what’s going on. Thanks for the response though!
