This plugin changes the WordPress’s native formatting rules to keep the numbers of the line breaks you wrote.
It adds <br /> tags as many as line breaks in posts, comments, or both, even if the line was vacant.
You can change the settings below in the admin panel. For example: you can choose to add <p> tags for wrapping the paragraphs or not.


You can choose settings below.

  1. Choose the target area: in posts, comments, or both(default).
  2. Choose the breaking tag format: <br />(default) or <br>.
  3. Choose the tag which the paragraphs will be wrapped with: <p> tag(default) or none.
  4. Shortcodes that you want to exclude from <p> tag wrapping.
    This doesn’t work if you choose “none” in option #3.
    Default is only “caption” but you can set multiple shortcodes separating “|”. Ex. “caption|map”


This plugin doesn’t work with the Visual Editor, so far.
