Let us force a line break

    It drives me (and many others) nuts that, for whatever reason, when we try to force line breaks WP strips them out. There is a lengthy discussion at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/73161.

    This problem is not limited to Macs and absolutely drives me nuts. There are times when we want to force an extra line between text and WP should not prevent us from doing so.

    I set up my wife's blog, and she is forever battling with the editor trying to make it display how she wants.
    She needs to use the WISIWIG editor as she is not HTML proficient, but I am forever having to dive into the raw HTML to fix things that the editor mucks up.

    Heartily agreed. Ever since 2.0.5, the editor seems to be doing some wacky things, more than just not putting line breaks in. It's been removing some of my paragraph breaks as well.

    Please, please, please make this change! I have been up most of the night working on this. I have tried everything suggested to no avail. I have one last idea. I have modified both the js/tinymce/tiny_mce.js file and the wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_gzip.php file as instructed. Now, I am not a programmer by any means. In fact, I'm only just now beginning to learn css. However it seems to me that if these two files work together in any way they have to not be fighting one another, so I went back into the js/tinymce/tiny_mce.js file and changed the top three parameters back to the original:

    this.defParam("force_br_newlines", false);
    this.defParam("force_p_newlines", true);
    this.defParam("convert_newlines_to_brs", false);

    and changed ONLY the fourth parameter to:

    this.defParam("remove_linebreaks", false);

    Then I went back to the wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_gzip.php file and changed only a single parameter:

    remove_linebreaks : false,

    I don't know if it's going to work, but it's worth a shot.

    This fix is absolutely necessary. If WordPress purports to give any sort of control to its users as authors of their work, please look into this as soon as possible.

    As a summary, here is the user problem: Line breaks and indents at the beginning of paragraphs are removed as soon as they are inputted. This forces all text to run together, making for a very cluttered textual experience.

    Fruitvale, you mention indents in addition to line breaks. There is no HTML equivalent for just putting an indent at the beginning of a paragraph - tabs don't exist and leading spaces are ignored (as are multiple spaces).

    So yes to the line break issue, but if you want your paragraphs indented, you'll have to use CSS and create a style for it.
