BP adds p-tag to profile name whenever the profile gets edited. Why?

    Hi!

    Whenever someone updates their profile Buddypress automatically adds <p> Name Lastname </p>

    I can’t really figure out why, but I noticed it when the name in the profile-admin bar got messed up:

    And when I go My profile in WordPress it looks like this:

    I can remove the tags and update profile within wordpress and everything is ok again, but I can’t go on doing this with every single member whenever they update their profile via buddypress.

    How can I prevent this?

    Thanks in advance

    Nobody tha can help me here?

    Is it a filter or similar that is acting up? And if that’s the case, which filter file could it be?

    I can’t replicate this issue on a fairly standard install running trunk, yes the BP display strings are wrapped in paragraph tags(nothing wrong in that) but I do not see that transposing to any edit screens in backend or on adminbar. Is it possible you have plugins running that might be involving themselves in the profile process?

    It is this filter that causes the paragraph tag to force itself into the profilename:

    add_filter( 'xprofile_get_field_data', 'wpautop' ); located in the bp-xprofile directory.

    When I remove it everything is normal, but if I do them the bio-field that I have in members-header won’t have any line breaks at all.

    What can I do to compromise? Is there another filtervalue I can use?

    I’, sorry if this a bit jumbled up, but I’m sick as a dog this week…
