    Stop Drupal from inserting it's own tags

    Sorry if this is in the wrong area but does anyone here know how to get Drupal to stop inserting <p> tags and <br> tags wherever it feels like I "forgot" them, it's really doing a number on my site. It's really annoying.

    I am unfamilliar with Drupal, but if it's like WordPress and Joomla, I suspect it's tinymce up to it's "I know better than you" tricks mucking things up.

    The tinymce editor can be frustrating for sure. Does Drupal allow you editor options? Maybe there's an alternative extension you could use for an editor?

    you're right, It wasn't actually Tiny MCE but Drupals Filtered HTML, I had to turn on PHP input which let's you directly insert PHP and HTML input to get it to stop inserting it's own line breaks ... i'm beginning to lose faith in Drupal when they try and make things easy they end up making things hard. I remember feeling this way about Joomla and Wordpress though so I guess time will tell.

    I think the problem is they're oriented towards non-techy users. The editor seems to work OK for simple text-only posts. But try to post perfectly valid code and it really messes things up.
