Underline problem in Posting Blog

Reported by: ankurakjain Owned by:

Focuses: ui Cc:


I was working on esach.org website which is writing a blog. I put Headings in the blog and used underline tag from the options given. In the draft window, I am able to see the headings with underline but when I preview the changes, the heading is not visible. I got confused.

Then, I click on edit as html and I saw you are using span tag to underline the text. I replace the span tag with div tag and now I can see underline text in the preview window.

Hi @ankurakjain !

Does your site have any trouble with the span tag after you publish a post? I think the editor preview might not be showing the latest edit(s). When I edited code in my browser with a heritagetribune.eu blog post, the span showed properly on a heading.

If it does not display properly for you on a published post, you may want to contact the Zeen theme support for help or else use the WordPress support forums.

Also, the underline button is no longer part of WordPress core (since changeset:38932 on ticket:27159). Enabling it requires a plugin or a special function in the theme.
