    I have what is likely a basic problem with the float property. You can see what I am trying to achieve in this screen grab from my wordpress visual editor:

    However this is what I end up with in reality:

    As you can see, a float clear is applying automatically after the first paragraph, despite the fact that I haven’t applied the clear property in the code.

    Thx in anticipation for any help.


    Really no way to know. You could have some stupid margin issues. You could have something that is positioned relative when it should be. You could have a hard-coded height attribute when you don’t need one. Again, hard to say.

    Is there ANY WAY you could post a Codepen of this issue? I know it’s WordPress but could you try?


    Thanks for your reply.

    I’m not able to reproduce the problem in codepen. But what i did do is verify that the problem only presents when I use a particular WP plugin to format the post. When I enter the same source code into the html tab of the regular WP text editor, it doesn’t occur.

    So I’ll go back to the plugin author. Thx again for your input.


    Thank you!

    I put this in the custom css for the theme and it fixed the problem:

    .widget ul { clear: none; }
