I have variously been using Livepress and the Automattic/Wordpress VIP Liveblog plugin as a live-blogging solution.
However, I have run into an issue that does not seem specific to either plugin but something that must be happening as a result of something else in Wordpress, and I don't even know where to begin.
Essentially, even when I use the text/HTML editor in both of these solutions – without switching to the visual editor – the resulting post is completely devoid of even basic HTML tags. So it will strip out the tags from
<em>text</em> so the output is just
text. It will strip out
<img> tags completely. Essentially, anything that is not plain text gets removed from
This issue is not happening in the normal post editor.
It looks like a
wp_strip_all_tags is being applied somewhere, but I can't fathom for a second where it's happening. I initially thought it was a TinyMCE issue, but I have since added a function to my functions.php which allows all elements and it has not resolved the issue.
Where should I begin looking for the solution to this, given the issue happens across two different plugins? I had successfully used Livepress in the past, but it seems that recent Wordpress updates and subsequent issues are causing this interaction to happen.
