I'm using wordpress API to display content. I'm using the classic editor since guttenberg is bugging out elsewhere.
I noticed that if a paragraph does not have inline styles, wordpress does not save the
<p> tags in the database. So when I call the api, the response is something like this:
first paragraph. second paragraph.
There isn't even a
<br> tag in between, just a newline I believe.
I just need to style paragraphs to be spaced apart, so I would prefer to have the paragraph tags.
Looked into wpautop function, but i just does not seem to save paragraph tags unless I tweak inline styles.
Any suggestions or alternatives?
