WordPress inserts extra line breaks

Problem
WordPress was doing some odd things with my posts, such as inserting paragraph tags where I had line breaks. This prevented the code from validating.
Solution
  • Download TextControl plugin.
  • Extract it to your /wp-content/plugins folder.
  • Enable the TextControl plugin under the Plugins control.
  • Select "No Formatting" under the first dropdown.
Explanation
WordPress automatically reformats posts and comments with line breaks. The plugin gives you more control over text formatting and character encoding.
