    I recently installed WordpressMU over my Wordpress install.
    The HTML editor is currently not working properly.
    When I try to center a image, or text with the
    <center>TEXT/IMAGE</center>
    markup the code is removed after publish/update is made to the post.

    The center tag was deprecated awhile ago. ('99?) The editor is removing it as most wordpress sites work in either xhtml or html 4.01 and neither use the center tag. While the center tag is still supported by most browsers, it;s not correct. A better solution would be to use div's and align="center" within the div.

    Reference:

    edit: Actually that says it won't work at all in xhtml.

    Hope this helps

    Thank you for the information.
    I prefer to use the center tag because it doesn't create unwanted space between content. With the div or p align tags there is a unwanted gap between the image and the text. Plus that add a more typing when posting from a PDA

    Again, thank you.
    I guess I'll just have to learn to deal with the space, or find a way to work around it, using the padding or margin tags.

    "With the div or p align tags there is a unwanted gap between the image and the text. "

    If you mean the gap shows on the front end of the blog, you'd be better off tweaking the stylesheet of the blog's theme.

    I have a simular issue, when I copy the code from mailchimp and try to add a contact form in the contact page, after I save the code, the contact form break down. But, when I use this code on other WP or WPMU pages, it works properly.

    They all have the same version, don't know what happen.
