Paragraph tags in TinyMCE

I have a custom content field built and everything is working fine, except that the TinyMCE automatically plugs in <p> </p> before and after any copy or code I add. This is really messing up the flow of the site! I've cycled through all the other formats (address, H1, H2, etc.) and all put some sort of formatting tag in front and behind my text. If I edit the HTML and delete them, TinyMCE just plugs them back in after I save it. How can I stop TinyMCE from automatically adding these formatting tags??

"Any help would be great"

HTML Editor Config - Setting TinyMCE Options:


If you want just the custom content field without any p tags, you could also do:

function CustomContent() {
return str_replace( array("<p>","</p>"), array("",""), $this->CustomContent );
