Support » Fixing WordPress » weird formatting when switch between tinymce and html editor

  • Beginner to wordpress here — yes I know you’re not supposed to switch between the 2 editors but I did. Now I’m back to the visual editor and fixing paragraphs.
    My formatting is crazy and I found this at top of html – which I did not put there.

    div id=”yass_top_edge_dummy” style=”width: 1px; height: 1px; padding: 0px; margin: -9px 0px 0px; border-width: 0px; display: block;”

    div id=”yass_top_edge” style=”background-image: url(‘chrome://yass/content/edgebgtop.png’); background-attachment: scroll; background-position: center bottom; padding: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 8px -8px; border-width: 0px; height: 0px; display: block; width: 828.45px;”

    what is this? Should I delete it in html, save and then try to edit in visual editor?

    thanks in advance

    Try using any one editor of your choice for posting the same content. If that comes out OK, delete the post that was formatted badly.

    yes, I’ve done that but just curious if the html serves a purpose. thanks!




    Yes, many people use mainly the HTML editor just because if correctly used, it gives better formatting.

    Hi abbyj,

    I faced the same phenomena as you and it drove me crazy. But now I found the problem. I bet you are using firefox with an add-on called yet another smooth scrolling. This add-on is the culprit. More precisely it is the feature called elastic edge. This feature adds some code (edge with shadow) to the actual page whenever the scrolling reaches the top or bottom border. Normally this should be okay as the code disappears, when you leave the site. But if you are using an editor like TinyMCE (or any other javascript based editor) this code is injected into the post.

    The solution: Just go to the setting of yass add-on and turn off elastic edges and your done.

    best regards,

    hi – that worked for a while and now it’s not. I do have “bouncy edge” turned off. Any ideas? thanks

    Thank you. Had this problem on Joomla 2.5 editor JCE. For your advice turned off Firefox extension Yet Another Smooth Scrolling.
    Thank you again.

    P.S. I am from Russia. I apologize for my bad English.
