I’m not very keen on the wordpress auto-formatting which replaces newlines with html linebreaks; I’ve been using HTML for so long now that I automatically type in the markup I want and (Damnit-Janet) I don’t want to see
unless I put it there myself.
The auto-formatting really should have a disable/enable option, and I’ve been looking at the code to try and understand how the text flows and where it gets formatted.
To turn if off, I have to edit
wp-includes\\default-filters.php and comment out the
// add_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');
// add_filter('the_excerpt', 'wpautop');
But then I have to look at the excerpts and user comments – no quick fixes here.
