Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress 2.1 image problem

  • I have just updated to wordpress 2.1 and there is a bug. Almost all my img id= line changing to newline with p tag

    <div style='float:right;margin-top:0px;margin-left:5px;'><img id="image1164" src="" alt="WordPress Logo" /></div>

    <div style='float:right;margin-top:0px;margin-left:5px;'><p><img id="image1164" src="" alt="WordPress Logo" /></div>

    As a result my blog image display is not working in FF but works under all other browser.

    How do i stop this crazy replacement. If i switch back to 2.0.7 it works perfectly.

    Please help. I have 1200 post with images all of them gone from FF 🙁

    Sorry. I’ve updated post with buggy output. It is inserting

    <img id >

    So it looks as
    <p><img id >

    Which is not working in FF but in all other browsers it works find. I never inserted p tag.

    I’m having the same problem. WP 2.1 is inserting an opening P tag in image DIVs, but it’s not closing them. I’ve never used P tags in those image blocks and they’re not required to be valid XHTML, so I’m wondering how to stop WP from inserting them in the first place (besides going back to 2.0.7).

    Going back to 2.0.7 backup means I will loss at least 50+ comments and 8 new posts. This is a small bug and may be someone will point out solution. I don’t know which file is use to display final output to end user. If I edit the post it displays no sign of extra p tag.

    Actually, you should be able to install the 2.0.7 files and do the normal upgrade process without losing any data. Your link groups will probably get messed up, but those are easy to fix. I just went through the downgrade process to resolve the various issues I was having–including the whole P tag mess in image DIVs. Amazing that once I went back to 2.0.7, my site is now back to valid XHTML and is working properly. I think I’ll wait to upgrade when a major bug clean-up takes place with 2.1.
