If you do not like automatic paragraph formatting, known as autop in WordPress, you can disable it in the content and/or excerpt view of your posts.
Add the following lines of code to child theme‘s
functions.php file. If you don’t have a child theme, consider creating a custom functions plugin for your site. Custom functions plugin is better than modifying your theme files or using a third-party plugin.
/* disable autop from content view */ remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop'); /* disable autop from excerpt view */ remove_filter('the_excerpt', 'wpautop');
