Post disappears if I input <br clear=”left”/>

  • I have an issue with text wrapping around the image and when I tried inputting:
    <br clear="left/>

    to prevent the text from wrapping, my page disappears. However, if I delete that code, the page works fine except I still have the wrapping issue.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • 1) that is not the right code
    it should be <br style=”clear:left;” />

    2) WP is liable to strip it out anyway as the visual editor strips out certain HTML code. You are probably better off using something like <div style=”padding-bottom: 10px; clear:left;” </div> which the visual editor should not change.

    this is stripped out also.

    at the bottom of http://codex.wordpress.org/Wrapping_Text_Around_Images
    it says you should use
    <div style=”clear:both;”></div>

    But this is stripped out as well.

    What’s the proper way to do this?

    Resolved – I installed the TinyMCE Advanced Plugin. Set it to not remove the <p> and
    tags, and then used the code from stvwlf above. Switching to the visual editor does not remove the code. yay my god this was driving me crazzzzy
