Paste plain text with 2.8

  • What’s wrong with 2.8 about pasting absolutely PLAIN text via clipboard? Whatever text I paste in Visual mode, it gets invisible and styled like this:

    <div id=”_mcePaste” style=”position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: hidden;”>

    HIGHLY ANNOYNG, I must say. Anyway, anyone has a cure for this?

    Thank you

  • okay…seems that this problem actually occurs with Google Chrome…so I have to use Firefox to paste text…unless this is resolved in the future.

    I use Safari and get the same thing…

    I don’t think this is the issue. From where you copy and paste the code? Use notepad or some Good Plane text editor.

    I ended up with the same div id=_mcePaste stuff when I upgraded to WordPress 2.8.

    I have to use the “Paste as Plain Text” button in the tinyMCE editor to get rid of the problem.

    And where did you copy this content from?

    Just confirming you that the div id="_mcePaste" is a polution generated when using Webkit browsers (Google Chrome/Safari) to paste (clean) text within the Tiny MCE module.

    Even if I cleaned my copied text (using Notepad) before, I still get the #_mcePaste in my plublished markup.
    As mentionned by cbird1057, the only fix I know for now is to use the Paste as Plain Text little button.

    Now does anybody know of a plugin that would force the Tiny MCE module to be set-up by default to treat any pasted text as plain text?
