#30132 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Remove <address> option in formatselect TinyMCE dropdown

Reported by: mor10 Owned by: azaozz
Milestone: 4.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: TinyMCE Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


While paragraph, div, and the stack of H levels make sense in the context of the formatselect in TinyMCE, <address> does not. It's inclusion seems arbitrary though I've been told it is a default from the application. The concern is that due to the poorly understood nature of the tag it is likely to be used erroneously if at all.

I propose removing it permanently to avoid user error.

For reference, this is the description of the <address> tag as per MDN:

"The HTML <address> Element may be used by authors to supply contact information for its nearest <article> or <body> ancestor; in the latter case, it applies to the whole document."

IMHO we should remove it. Seems <address> is very rarely used and is out of context inside the post_content unless the theme uses <article> tags.

Alternatively we can ask spocke to remove it.

avryl - did you ask spocke, or should we go with the patch?

I just asked, but if we want to remove it for 4.1, we should probably use the patch until it's changed in TinyMCE.
