Crazy formatting (5 posts)

    I'm using this plugin for author bios (aka Attorney bios) in a site. These bios use unordered lists a great deal. But once you go and edit them, the formatting is toast. Odd spaces, loads of <p> tags etc.

    Is there a way to ENABLE the HTML view for the editor in this plugin? If so, it would allow much better control over the content that is input. The end users have had hell making edits.

    Have the same question myself. I'm sure there's a better way to go about this in the plugin code itself. It should be the same as the way WordPress does it for the post writing screens.

    I'm seeing the same things. Loads of <p> tags that shouldn't be there. I try cleaning this out, but they keep coming back.

    Would be lovely if it would work. Formatting now is too unpredictable for the plugin to be useful, which is a real shame.

    Ok guys, I really did need this functionality so I searched through the plugin database to find something similar.

    The people-lists plugin had a (working) bio editor, but I didn't need the rest of it's functionality, so I've isolated the bits needed and created a separate plugin with the functionality I (we) want plus some additional code to bring the end result in line with the expected behavior for the Rich Text Biography plugin.

    Tested & found working as desired in WP 3.2.1.

    If you're interested, you can download it.

    If you do, I'd very much appreciate it if you post back with your test results, i.e. in which WP version did you test it ? and did it work as expected ? if not, what did you do, what was the result and what was the result you expected ?

    I'm contacting the authors of the people-lists plugin to see about maintenance and also the author of the rich-text-biography plugin to see about a possible upgrade path for current users.
