I generally code raw HTML, but also find the visual editor to be a convenience (at least I would if it worked correctly, which is why I am raising this issue).
I am an administrator on a site that has two types of users – those that know HTML and those that do not. These two types of users co-exist in that they edit the same pages (so disabling the visual editor is not an option).
In many instances of my site, I have additional line breaks and indentations in the HTML code to help with organization (some pages are quite lengthy). However, whenever the visual editor is accessed, it strips out these additional organizational tools.
So, for instance, I bring up a page and it defaults to the HTML editor. I then click on the visual editor, but *do not make any changes*. When I revert to the HTML editor, my organizational line breaks are gone. I didn’t make any changes! Where is the option to tell WordPress that I know what I am doing? Why does the software think it knows my code better than me?
I would like to be able to access the visual editor while also retaining the organizational properties of my HTML.
Other notes: I am already using the TinyMCE Advanced plugin to stop the auto-insertion of <p> and
