WP 2.3 – automatically removes certain tags like DIV
What the heck??
I know a lot of you guys have run into this before: wordpress now doesn’t let you use DIV tags in posts. And why not? What if we do want to throw in a DIV in the content of a post, or say, an object, or something unusual? What is the justification for this? It’s not as if DIVs are dangerous; it simply removes an option for people who want to use them.
That’s not my main issue though. Yes, I searched and found a solution…however, it worked for wordpress 2.1. Not 2.3…
In the tinyMCE config file:
valid_elements : “<?php echo $valid_elements; ?>”,
Er…so, how do I change the value of $valid_elements?
Thanks guys 😀 This is kind of irksome. What bothers me most is that if you want to resolve it, you have to dig deep down into core files that will just be replaced on your next update, upon which you’ll have to do some more changing – just so you can use DIV tags? I mean…this isn’t a new issue. Same problems last time, same concerns from users (w.r.t. WP 2.1). I wonder why this isn’t fixed?
Thanks – and apologies to everyone if I come off as unreasonable or caustic in this post…kind of rushing 😉 I like and enjoy using WP a lot, but this kind of just baffled me.
