#6984 new defect (bug)

wpautop() formats the the contents of shortcodes

Severity: normal Version: 2.6
Component: Formatting Keywords: needs-patch wpautop
Focuses: Cc:


wpautop(), the bane of my existence as a plugin developer, is at it again.

Here's an example of some PHP wrapped in a valid shortcode in a post of mine:

[code lang="php"]$text = str_replace( array('<p><p>', '</p></p>'), array('<p>', '</p>'), $text);[/code]

The content that gets passed to my shortcode function is this:

$text = str_replace( array('
<p>', '</p>

<p>'), array('
<p>', '</p>
<p>'), $text);

Expected result: it shouldn't touch the insides of valid shortcodes (like adding line breaks or anything as it is doing now).

  • Milestone changed from 2.9 to Future Release
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to trivial

Extreme edge case. The shortcode args are passed to the callback that can contain these strings.

  • Severity changed from trivial to normal

I may get over ruled here, but I'm changing the priority of this from trivial to normal. As an avid plugin developer that spends 80% of every day working in support forums for plugins, this is a huge issue to me. It has cost me so many hours of support time due to themes modifying wpauto() and causing the contents of my plugin's short codes to break.
