    I see them in source info but I can’t edit them in the text editor.

    The blog I need help with is thecookbooktestkitchen.wordpress.com.

    I have a similar issue and I posted about it, but there was never any reason given why this happens. My issue shows a big blank chunk at the bottom and I only have 3 paragraph tags at the top.

    Unlike you I am able to delete the extra code and it would “stick”. I just have to remember to do this before I publish.

    If you are curious about the replies I received… (I also have screen shots of what my trouble is)

    Though the thread has not been replied to recently, I am still curious why the extra code began showing up like it did. Maybe it’s theme related?? But you have a different theme than I do. I use Adventure Journal.

    Yeah, I can’t see the extra code at all in the text editor only when I view the page source. Really frustrating.

    It’s also possible that the “blank” area is where the advertising that we cannot see when we are logged in goes.

    I logged out and viewed your post and the blank space was still there. No ad, but I have an adblocker and when I viewed Blockable items , it wasn’t blocking any ads from your page, but it was blocking a beacon from Scorecardresearch.

    Wow yeah this really shouldn’t be this complicated. I literally want to delete seven tiny lines of HTML and I don’t have that option.

    You will need Staff help and I have flagged this thread for Staff attention.

    @ixshelle,

    Looking at the revision (17 August, 2012 @ 15:47 ) you originally had 7 lines of blank space.

    I’m not sure why we didn’t see that ion text mode in the dashboard but I just copied your text and pasted it to a text editor as plain text, and paste it back to WordPress and re-saved the post. The blank paragraph tags are gone now.

    I am glad this is not closed yet so I do not have to start a new thread… I have a different theme (adventure Journal), so am not sure it is theme related though.

    This is the first time I have had the same problem as the original author of this thread and have not been able to delete the extra garbage code. It does not show on the Text/HTML tab of the edit page but it does show on the page source I opened up.

    This is the post.

    I cannot pin point when this extra garbage code started showing up, but it used to not happen at all. If I am not stepping over the line, could I ask that someone please look into why this is happening and possibly fix it? I have not changed how I write posts that I am aware of.

    I worked on the above post last week and actually waited for the code to show up like it usually does before I click on the Submit button. It never did. I was rejoicing. Today I discovered the junk code was indeed placed in there and I noticed an autosave that was not there before.

    I appreciate the autosave because it has been helpful when my browser crashed during the writing of posts, but is there a way to disable it so it will not sneak in the excess code? That is all I can figure, is it is the autosave. I could be wrong though.

    Thank you for your time.

    Hello, I have been experiencing problems at the blog http://www.GKoopAndOman.com of which I am admin. If I visit my page with scripts enabled, every web access from then on is horribly slow until I reboot. How do I work with WordPress staff to ensure that my blogs are functional?

    Thank you in advance, this has been driving me crazy for a while now, and I have finally pinpointed my network problems to the automatic scripts that this page runs.
