[resolved] wp_editor api not writing p tags in custom user profile field (2 posts)

    I am building a custom biography field in the wordpress user profile page using WP's wp_editor api (using WP version 3.3.1).

    When I add any content though, the WSYIWYG editor is not writing the paragraph tags to the database.

    I am able to use the visual editor to add all other mark-up (bold, italics, etc) & I can manually add paragraph tags and save the full marked-up text to the database.

    Has anyone else run into this issue? Code I'm using to build the custom field in the functions.php file below.

    Solved the issue. Was not adding the_content fitler.

    $content = apply_filters('the_content', $content);
    $content = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $content);
