Hmm… you’re right, it worked, exactly the same as the S5 Theme setting to enable RAW HTML. My other pages all need fixed up now, since the <p> tags were removed.
I sure appreciate the help and time, Steven. I think it’s now up to my team and I to decide if we want to rework the rest of the pages w/out the wpautop filter so we can have a working Connections Form. I think it’ll be worth it – your suite of templates and add-ons are just too handy. :-)
Thanks for the awesome support! -jp
