    i have a problem with my theme and i can't fix it

    my theme is corporate:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/corporate#post-573

    i use wordpress 2.6.5 and my problem is this:

    when i make a new post that looks like this:

    line one
    [space here]
    line two
    [space here]
    line three
    [more spaces here]
    line four

    after clicking save it is just formatted on the page as:

    line one
    line two
    line three
    line four

    in other words there's no spaces in between the text (ie line breaks) so it all look bad

    please help me fix this

    What exactly are you doing? Are you typing in the visual or in the html environment?
    If you're typing in the visual environment, you should be able to hit enter and automatically get those spaces. If you are doing that in html, it doesn't work because then you would need the <br /> tag.

    i tried the visual environment and it enters the spaces (new line) but when viewing the page/post it has none and i've tried entering
    in the html editor but i get the same thing

    I have the same problem. Can't get a line space. It doesn't matter if it's visual or html. Is there a simple code to stick in there? It looks fine in Firefox but makes a mess in IE.

    In WordPress, a single enter (return) generates a line break, while two enters (return return) will generate a new paragraph.

    If your theme does not have enough spacing between paragraphs, then you will have to add some css padding to the relevant p in your theme's style.css. No spacing between post paragraphs is a common problem with poorly designed themes.
