    Tiny MCE as configured in WordPress 2.1 wipes away divs and replaces them with p tags.

    This can be fixed by doing the following:

    1-Open your TinyMCE config file in an editor. The file is located at:
    wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/tiny_mce_config.php

    2-Replace Line 25 with the following but on a single line:

    $valid_elements = ‘#p[*],-div[*],-strong/-b[*],-em/-i[*],-font[*],-ul[*],-ol[*],-li[*],*[*]’;

    3-Save the file back to your active WordPress installation, overwriting the existing tiny_mce_config.php file.

    4-In WordPress admin, the editor will now allow divs.

    You may have to refresh your editor page.

    As always, copy your original tiny_mce_config.php file to a safe place for backup before editing the original.

  • Thanks for the help – that was getting REALLY annoying. I wonder why they left DIV out of the mix. An oversight?

    This is getting retarded.. I keep losing my breaks too 🙁

    I think that may be a safari issue.
