extra <br> and <p> tags between code on frontend

  • using wysiwyg field type and displaying on frontend:

    if i use: get_post_meta($post->ID, 'fieldname', true);
    the value is without formatting and it displays as if all new lines were stripped out…

    if i use: the_field('fieldname');
    the value is formatted… but there are extra <br> tags and <p> tags in between things.
    if i have a list then the list will have <br> in between each list element.

    how to fix this issue when using the_field
    i know the default “format_value” is ‘br’ but this doesnt work for the rich text/wysiwyg field type.

    example of what happens:

    <li>item 1</li>
    <li>item 3</li>
  • Although this seems to be an old topic, it looks like I have exactly the same problem.

    get_post_meta isn’t really a solution because it doesn’t wrap regular text in <p> tags when you have mixed content in a wysiwyg field
