Questions tagged [wp-autop]

Changes double line-breaks in the text into HTML paragraphs (`<p>...</p>`). WordPress uses it to filter a posts content and its excerpt per default. This function can be used for autocorrecting any HTML saved to the database (or just displayed). Keep in mind that in the background it is using a time extensive regular expression, so it is considered to slow down your requests.
