Formatting on SIM payment page

I am using both credit card (SIM) and invoice payment options. When the registration payment page loads with both payment options, there is a significant gap between the payment option title and the credit card payment button. CSS inspector shows that the hidden fields are being separated by br tags, thus creating the spacing issue and bumping the button so far down. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the extra spacing?

Hi Greg,

This sounds to me that the theme is adding its own filter to the content which is causing the break tags and may also cause other issues. In most cases, it can be resolved by removing code like this from your theme’s functions file:

function my_formatter($content) {
    $new_content = '';
    $pattern_full = '{(\[raw\].*?\[/raw\])}is';
    $pattern_contents = '{\[raw\](.*?)\[/raw\]}is';
    $pieces = preg_split($pattern_full, $content, -1, PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE);

    foreach ($pieces as $piece) {
        if (preg_match($pattern_contents, $piece, $matches)) {
            $new_content .= $matches[1];
        } else {
            $new_content .= wptexturize(wpautop($piece));

    return $new_content;

remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');
remove_filter('the_content', 'wptexturize');

add_filter('the_content', 'my_formatter', 99);

or by wrapping the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] shortcode with raw tags like this:

You’re the best, Josh! Thanks. Adding the raw tag did the trick.
