Insert Element Between Other Elements

For example, if you have five paragraphs in a row and you need to insert a break tag in between all of them. You can't put it before all five (you don't need one at the top) or after all five (you don't need one at the bottom), you only need four.

$("p:not(:last-of-type)").after("<br />");

    This will also work..
    $("p:not(:first-of-type)").before("");

    there’s supposed to be a break tag between those quotes.

    :first-of-type is not a selector filter so the sinppent doesn’t work.
    Here is the correction


    $('.parent_of_target_p_tags').children('p.not(:last-child)').after('');

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
