Possible bug with the current nightly build and SS 2.2.2 fresh install.

This only applies when BlogEntry::allow_wysiwyg_editing(); is included in _config.php

Line 111 of BlogEntry.php - ParagraphSummary Method

function ParagraphSummary(){
		if(self::$allow_wysiwyg_editing) {
			return $this->obj('Content')->FirstParagraph('html');
		} else {
			$parser = new BBCodeParser($this->Content);
			$html = new HTMLText('Content');
			return $html->FirstParagraph('html');

$this->obj('Content')->FirstParagraph('html') doesn't appear to return the first paragraph at all? Seems to work fine when wysiwyg is disabled.

Problem with the FirstParagraph method?

Ah, comment above FirstParagraph method in sapphire/core/models/fieldtypes/Text.php

	 * Caution: Not XML/HTML-safe - does not respect closing tags.

Thank you VERY MUCH for this thread-- this was VERY helpful to me, as I had the same problem myself after enabling HTML in the Blog Entries.
