Anyone know why, or better yet where, random <p>s come from in a post? I am NOT using the MCE because it keeps thinking it knows better then I do how to format the posts.
I’m using <div> tags with the style attribute so I can customize the layout and so forth and it LOOKS A-OK. However, if I try to validate it I get errors about <p> tags being in the wrong place or </p> being there when it’s not needed.
They show up slap in the middle of my posted code, in the browser’s source view, but when I check the post in the editor they aren’t there.
Ergo, some piece of the code is generating them.
I figure either
- A – The code needs correcting
- B – I need to hack it (rather not, makes upgrades a pain)
- C – There might be a plugin to prevent this?
All I want is for it to post what I wrote and stop mucking about with it…
There are a number of threads on this. There’s a fix on this one, though:
Nope, there aren’t. But since you sent me there I tried the disable wpautop plugin. It works GREAT (and I may keep it) but it doesn’t fix my problem, the <p>s persist.
this may be related..
“but it doesn’t fix my problem, the <p>s persist.”
have you started from scratch again for the post? Its only going to affect posts as they get inserted, once they’re put in with the incorrect tags i dont believe they get changed unless you re-do the post?
I’m working too hard… I can’t recall which project this was affecting…
Well, if I find it again, I’ll keep the new post thing in mind. I didn’t think about it working with my text before storing it in the database (doi!)
