Description

WordPress 4.7.

The 'code' block in the WordPress editor behaves incorrectly.

For example:

<code>Test Test
Another
www.google.com
http://www.google.com
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHw6LTuMkNQ
Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo
</code>

Displays as normal code in the wp-admin, but once published it creates an embed on the page. This should not happen and the contents of the code block should be displayed without embeds.

@rmens

The YouTube link would be converted with an embed by WP automatically.

https://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

WordPress will automatically turn the URL into a YouTube embed and provide a live preview in the visual editor.

If you used say

<code>Test Test
Another
<a href="www.google.com">www.google.com</a>
<a href="http://www.google.com">http://www.google.com</a>
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHw6LTuMkNQ">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHw6LTuMkNQ</a>

Replying to lukecavanagh:

@rmens

The YouTube link would be converted with an embed by WP automatically.

I'm aware of this, but should that really happen inside code blocks?

@rmens

Not sure if having code blocks around a YouTube link would make any difference currently with the emded.

  • Component changed from Formatting to Embeds
  • Keywords needs-patch added

Agreed that this is bug-worthy, embeds should not be processed within <code> or <pre> tags if at all possible.
