Recently, and this never happened before, the HTML editor is adding hundreds of <p></p> to my code creating breaks everywhere! It seems to happen everytime I view the source code or save. How do I get this to stop? Is this because I made my website WordPress? If so, will uninstalling WordPress fix the issue? Thank you!

Hey there! I'm not able to reproduce this problem in my environment, either with or without a WordPress installation. I also would not expect WordPress to be related to the issue you're seeing.

This might be tricky to reproduce outside of your system, but if you have root access to the server we'd be happy to take a look at the machine if you contact our support team directly. Alternatively, if you have details on how I can reproduce the problem on my end, just let me know and I can do more testing for you.

Thank you! Just knowing that it wasn't that gave me the confidence to copy one of the HTML files and play with deleting some of that header stuff that I have no idea what it does! That actually seemed to solve the issue (yay!!!), and so I've been editing my affected pages.
