I’ve been editing my site and when I look at the elements the visual editor is adding a lot of random <p>
codes before and after each line.
Its a fresh site and I haven’t added any plugin’s, so I don’t know what could be causing this interference.May 1, 2013 at 10:14 pm #116856
To expand further, every time I open up an element that has text entry it adds another
<p><br/>to the top and bottom each time.May 2, 2013 at 2:55 am #116857May 2, 2013 at 6:50 am #116858
Text entries are always enclose on the paragraph tag <p> and when you create a line break it will insert the code
Does it bother you?

Forgot I posted this. Bother me, lol no :) That’s funny.
This is an example I copied just now:
<p>Recruiting rules of thumb:</p>
The only thing I had typed was the sentence. I saved it and went to dinner. I opened it back up and that’s what came up. It doesn’t always do this, but sometimes it does this for a certain block. Other blocks no.
I’m only mentioning it as there could be a little bug somewhere. If I’m the only one who gets it, then something is corrupted i guess. I’ll do a fresh install before I go live.May 11, 2013 at 5:58 am #116860
I experienced this too. I ended up just using the shortcodes without the builder editor to circumvent it as it did change the look of my page.May 12, 2013 at 2:03 am #116861May 13, 2013 at 5:34 am #116862
It still happens for me, but it’s kind of random to pinpoint. If I had to go off my observation, I’d say It has to do with copying a content block or perhaps a copy of that copy. Fresh blocks that get pulled down from the top toolbar don’t seem to have this issue.
I also had another thread about images not lining up vertically. Again this seemed to occur when I tried to be efficient and copy the original block and then again. It would start to stagger out of line after that second copy.
I’m fairly confident there’s a bug or something resulting from the block copying option.
Hope that helps.
