... and it keeps screwing up the way things display on my page.
For instance, if I click "preview" when I've left off a </div> it moves everything around and even reformatted a command to embed a Youtube video so the command would no longer parse correctly. I would MUCH rather get an error message than have the editor silently change my code!
It also does this with inserted spaces and hard line breaks ( and
In fact if I have inserted a blank (&nbps) in the HTML view and then go back to the "Visual" view, the editor deletes my blanks!
Right now I can't get the spacing I want and I have no idea why. Possibly there's some minor error in the HTML but it's not telling me where it is and in the meantime it is sometimes (but not always) ignoring these commands. Using <p> to try to force the issue is also of limited value.
I presume there is some artifact left in my code from this annoying and dangerous habit the editor has of rewriting my code that I didn't manage to extract. In any case I'm tired of having to rewrite entire pages because the editor won't leave my code alone, for good or ill. I'd rather correct errors I myself have made than have to correct errors the editor has made when compounding some minor error of mine.
How can I turn this behavior off?
Page that continues to misbehave no matter what I do:
At the end there should be a line break before and after the last word (Enjoy!)
In the body there should be a line break before and after "Directions" - currently it is only showing the line break AFTER.
The blog I need help with is barbariansatthekitchengate.wordpress.com.
