#18514 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

WPautoP via AJAX

Reported by: wraithkenny's profile WraithKenny Owned by: wraithkenny's profile WraithKenny
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2

Investing doing wpautop as an ajax request (see ).

At the cost of slower tab switching, several bugs could be resolved (and end much complaining about "TinyMCE mangled my code" and "Disable autop" requests).

Patch and/or Proof-of-Concept plugin incoming.

Simple plugin available to test the concept:

Tested #11947 an #17537 which are fixed by calling autop via ajax.

The delay caused by the ajax is < 200ms for my tests (from firebug)

That's totally dependant on the network connection. The delay will naturally be lower when testing on localhost.

Trolling: If WordPress was written in Javascript (node.js), we wouldn't have this problem. :P

I had forgotten about this ticket. I deleted the test plugin unfortunately.

Yeah, the test was definitely localhost; I didn't consider that it'd be considerably longer live (which it really would be significantly longer).

Nevertheless, Tab switching is generally considered to be a rare event and one that users shouldn't do very often at all, so the length of delay could be acceptable at much longer times I think.

I still think these many months later that this is a good idea... If there's any interest I'll rebuilt the testing plugin...
