WYSIWYG Editor on User Profile pages, missing paragraph tags

  • I have a WYSIWYG editor on user profiles (user_bio), and on the author.php there are missing paragraph tags when I try to echo out the field.

    When I add other HTML through the editor (h2, h3, ul>li, etc) it all works, only the paragraph tags seem to be missing.

    Example Code:

    <?php 
    $curauth = (isset($_GET['author_name'])) ? get_user_by('slug', $author_name) : get_userdata(intval($author));
    
    echo $curauth->user_bio;
    ?>
  • I have having the same problem. Any solution?

  • Do you get expected output if you use wpautop?

    echo wpautop($curauth->user_bio);

    It’s one of the functions that gets run on the ‘the_content’ filter, you can also do:

    echo apply_filters('the_content', $curauth->user_bio);

    Which will sort out shortcodes and other things.

    I don’t think has anything to do with ACF, but I’m playing around with custom user fields at the moment so I’ll follow up if I find anything.
