Kntnt Fix for Garden Gnome Package
WordPress mu-plugin that removes empty lines from the JavaScript outputted by the shortcode of Garden Gnome Package viewer to prevent wpautop to mess with it.

Background
The WordPress plugin for publishing Garden Gnome Packages provides the shortcode ggpkg to present Pano2VR and Object2VR packages on pages and posts.

The plugin's shortcode outputs JavaScript code which might contain empty lines. These lines will be converted into <p></p> by WordPress' infamous wpautop() function. That results in a syntax error in the JavaScript.

Awaiting a bug fix from Garden Gnome Software, you can use this plugin as a fix. It merely removes the empty lines before outputting te JavaScript.

How to install
I suggest you install this plugin as a "must use plugin":

In your wp-content directory, create a mu-plugins directory (if it not already exists).
Download kntnt-ggpkg-shortcode-fix.php and save it within the mu-plugins directory.
That's it!

Hi PIngerstam,
I have asked for your package in the support e-mail you sent in.
Also, Thomas has asked for the package, until we get to see it, it will be hard to diagnose.

But I have tested this with my test WordPress website and it works ok, and I am not seeing any other reports of issues like this.
Not saying there is not a problem but until we can reproduce the issue it will be hard to debug.
So as much information as you can provide about your WordPress website will be good.
Interested in other plugins, themes etc.
Regards,
Hopki
