Paragraph markup gets removed when switching between Visual and Text mode in category description editor

When inserting a paragraph tag in the Text mode of the posts category description editor, switching to visual mode will remove the paragraph markup. Switching back to text mode will show the paragraph markup is not retained.

The only way to use more than one paragraph in the category editor is to use a paragraph tag in Text mode and save it from text mode.

When using more than one paragraph in Visual mode, upon saving, the paragraphs are not retained.

Hi @muchasplumas,

Welcome to Trac!

By default, WordPress does not include the functionality that you are describing (switching between visual and text mode for term descriptions). This is most likely being added by a plugin or the theme you are using on your site. That also means that this is not the correct location to report this issue.

If you know which plugin or theme is adding this functionality, feel free to open a ticket in their support forums. Otherwise, the volunteers working the WordPress.org Support Forums will be able to help you further debug the issue you are seeing.

Wow, had to install a clean WordPress before I believed this. :) I checked three different sites with no overlapping plugins or themes and they all had the option to switch between visual and text mode. So, it seems there's quite a few plugins or themes implementing this option. I'll try to figure out which one and contact the builders. Thanks!
