WordPress Allow HTML in Author Bio

By default, WordPress filters out any markup included in the description (bio) of user profiles. Here is a code snippet to allow HTML in author bios.

Very simple, just add the following code to your plugin or theme’s functions.php file:

remove_filter('pre_user_description', 'wp_filter_kses');

What this does is use remove_filter() to disable the wp_filter_kses filter from the user description. Once included, this code will let you or any user add markup to their profile description.
