#2311 new defect (bug)

Can't escape blockquotes with newline (enter) or backslash in rich text editor

Reported by: sadr's profile Sadr Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: low
Severity: minor Version: trunk
Component: General - Content Creation Keywords: needs-patch


Try the following in any thread on

  • Paste or simply write a line of text in your editor box.
  • Click the "Blockquote" button to give it quotation styling.
  • Now if you want to continue writing ordinary, non-quoted text below that, you can't. Creating a new line will simply create a new line within the blockquotes area, instead of breaking out of it, into a new paragraph.

I realize this is also how the WordPress edit works by default, but it's not a good user experience. You should never have to enter the text editor unless you're trying to do something out of the ordinary, i.e. advanced.

Valid. You'll have better luck creating a ticket on the WordPress core trac for sure.
