#4605 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

input tags misformatted

Reported by: jaddle's profile jaddle Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.2.1
Component: General Keywords: has-patch 2nd-opinion formatting forms input br
Focuses: Cc:


I tried creating a form in a page - but the formatting is not working properly.

When I enter, for example:

Your name: <input name="submittername" type="text"/><br />
Your E-mail address: <input name="submitteremail" type="text" />

wordpress then modifies it to look like this when you view the page:

name:<br />
<input name="submittername" type="text"/>
Your E-mail address:<br />
<input name="submitteremail" type="text" />

It's putting in a br tag before each input tag, and not putting them in where I actually made line breaks.

Note that the code is not actually being altered - if I edit it again, I see the original code I wrote. It's just when it's rendered for viewing the page that I get the modified version.

Also, I'm not using the visual editor at all - it's disabled in my profile - so I don't imagine it could be at fault here.

For some reason, "input" is part of the $allblocks list in wpautop() in formatting.php... Which is odd, because input is an inline element, not a block element. I think that input should be removed from that list.

Take a look here as well:

This seems to be related to this Issue in some kind and gives an additional insight in <br/> and form element related issues. (WP 2.2.2)

hakre: No, this is unrelated to #4716.

But it might cause the Problem I was reporting there as well. I have now removed INPUT from that list and now this turns out very well in my reported problem.

<hr> should be removed there as well as <select> and <style>. additionally it would make sense to sort this alphabetically for a better overview.

I made a patch against current svn.

Forms are best added in custom templates, not in the Post area. Templates can include any html, php, js, etc. and are much better suited for this.
