Support » Networking WordPress » Upgrade to 4.2.5 – Wiped out styles and formatting

  • We upgraded to 4.2.5 and it removed content, changed some styling, etc. on multiple WP sites on our network. The IT dept is working on installing backups but how is this to be avoided in the future?

    It is strange because when I am in the admin area on one site, everything looks like it is laid out exactly the same BUT when viewing the site, everything is messed up.

    Thank you for any guidance.

    Hi,

    Without some screenshots and more info, it’ll be hard to help here. Can you provide some?

    Same problem here. Posted more details about my problem here.

    It looks like WordPress is stripping out all my <p> tags inside my Posts and replacing them with double quotes (") – check Chrome Developer Tools (F12) to see what I mean. This is only happening on my Multisite installs, so I wonder if it’s a Multisite problem?

    Let’s say my code (in the editor) looks like this:
    Hello, everyone! What a <strong>nice</strong> day! Let's go <em>outside</em>.

    It SHOULD be marked up like this:
    <p>Hello, everyone! What a <strong>nice</strong> day! Let's go <em>outside</em>.</p>

    Instead, what I see in Developer Tools is this:
    "Hello, everyone! What a " <strong> "nice" </strong> " day! Let's go " <em> "outside"</em> "."

    It wraps quotation marks around EVERYTHING that isn’t in a tag – and since the paragraph doesn’t have <p> tags, it wraps EVERYTHING.
