Profile Field Mapping

I’ve given up on the other issues I’m having with the plugin… so I’m using 2.0.1 (just for the record).

When I import the profile field “Bio” into the “description” field for wordpress, it places line breaks where they are supposed to be… except that it does not put in actual code for those breaks (no
or </p> tags). So when outputting the information that is saved in the database, everything looks jumbled together.

I’ve added the following to my functions.php in order to support the html tags, but need to know how to have the filter disabled prior to the import of data (so that the tags are saved into the database when the import is done, instead of only when the user manually edits their description).

remove_filter('pre_user_description', 'wp_filter_kses');
add_filter('pre_user_description', 'wp_filter_post_kses');
add_filter('pre_user_description', 'wptexturize');
add_filter('pre_user_description', 'wpautop');
add_filter('pre_user_description', 'convert_chars');
add_filter('pre_user_description', 'balanceTags', 50);
