    When trying to post a table with a caption tag, the caption tag is automatically removed by WordPress. I’m wondering why this is happening, considering caption is a valid tag.

    Example:
    <table>
    <caption>This is a caption</caption>
    <tr>
    <th>Header 1</th>
    <th>Header 2</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Cell 1</td>
    <td>Cell 2</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    After posted, it removed the caption tag and becomes:
    <table>
    <tr>
    <th>Header 1</th>
    <th>Header 2</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Cell 1</td>
    <td>Cell 2</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    I’ve tried to search for a solution, but couldn’t find anything. To see the actual page in question, go to:

    There should be a caption above the headers that says “Summer Olympic Games”

  • Are you putting your code in the wysiwyg editor?
    Never do that with any kind of code…

    No, I’m using the HTML button, and typing it in directly

    Through the tags feature on these forums, I stumbled onto the solution. Sorry for reproducing the same question here.

    I disabled the WYSYWIG completely and reposted the table and it worked. Thanks.
