TinyMCE Clear Float

Description

Adds a button to the WordPress TinyMCE editor to clear floats.

Screenshots

  • Before: Floated images in the editor. The second image overlaps the first.
  • After: Added clear tag (see new icon in second toolbar).
  • Markup in the Text Editor (notice <br style="clear: both;">).

FAQ

Which HTML markup does the plugin use ?

Line breaks with inline styles (<br style="clear: both;">).

Note: TinyMCE wrapps line breaks in paragraphs which may lead to additional margins depending on your theme. To prevent these margins paste the following in the “Custom CSS” part of the Customizer:
p > br[style=”clear: both;”]:only-child {
content: ”;
display: block;
margin-bottom: -1.5em;
}
The value 1.5em corresponds to your theme’s margin-bottom of <p> tags.
