Every time a user updates their profile, the ‘HTML code’ version of their bio replaces the public ‘visual’ (neat looking, no code) version of their bio, which is visible in all of their published posts on our site.
In order to prevent this from happening, the user must first (somehow know to) copy the HTML code (which is displaying in the visual editor) and paste into the HTML editor.
This must be done before updating *any* profile information in order to prevent having their public bio replaced by HTML code.
Granted, the HTML editor does show the HTML code (by design), however it is squeezed into a (much) smaller area. It would be great to have the full width of the editor to work with here.
Also, the visual editor doesn’t seem to be recognizing pressing the ‘Enter’ key to insert paragraphs. We add additional <p> and </p> tags to counter this (in the HTML editor), but they are often removed when updating the page, thus making the insertion of paragraphs seem unachievable.
It would be super to hear your thoughts on updating this plugin further for WP v3.3 compatibility!
