    Forced_Root_Block editor settings in Umbraco 7

    I have tried adding the following settings to Config/tinyMceConfig.config which have no effect on the editor:

    <config key="force_p_newlines">false</config>
    <config key="force_br_newlines">true</config>
    <config key="forced_root_block">false</config>

    The purpose is to avoid wrapping text and marcos in <p> tags.

    Has anyone been able to achieve this in the latest version of Umbraco? I am using 7.0.3.

    This should be fixed in 7.1 which probably would be released the end of this week.

    This is the related issue:

    I'm using Umbraco 7.2 (latest one) but getting the same issue. Would you please help me to fix this?

    Have you tried adding this to your config:

    <config key="forced_root_block">''</config>

    I don't know why but at the moment seems to be working for me and also seems to be still creating paragraphs on enter which according to TinyMce docs perhaps shouldn't but is what we wanted.

    Not sure, mate. I've given up after trying for a few weeks, I decided that the CMS was an overkill for my project. Good luck!

    I found that including force_p_newlines, even if set to false would cause the root block to be a <p>.

    Remove the force_p_newlines setting completely, and then the rest of the settings seem to work as intended.

    I had success with the following:

    <config key="forced_root_block">div</config>
    <config key="convert_newlines_to_brs">true</config>
    <config key="force_br_newlines">true</config>

    but you could also leave the two br-related config rules out and just use

    <config key="forced_root_block">div</config>
