Is it possible for wpautop to only wrap plain text, so that e.g. here:


<a href="">link</a>

only the "text" gets wrapped. Why would you want to wrap tags anyway? Maybe anyone has a custom function?

  • Have you taken a look at the source, tried to figure out what it really does (hint: phpDocBlock) and tried to fix what you need yourself (which is a prerequisite)?

  • That would be the last straw of course. I cannot believe that i am the only one with this desire though, so i wanted to ask since i couldn't find any solution (that others have created) by myself.

  • Please read the doc block again. And please test this with no plugins activated and one of the default Twenty* themes in use.
