No space between paragraphs (6 posts)

    I'm using the Cutline 3 theme.

    All my paragraphs run together both in posts and pages. i.e. no white line space after each paragraph. Is there something in the Stylesheet I need to change to correct this?

    Also, what is blockquote?

    Thanks.
    Helen

    Hi
    yes, a stylesheet issue.

    find the content area styling for <p> and add bottom-margin: 10px

    block quote is for when you are quoting someone else. typically it is indented and sometimes displayed with different styling

    Hi stvwlf, thanks for your reply. I can't find <p> in the stylesheet code. Could there be any other way of expressing the paragraph style?

    I had this problem (with a different theme) and it went away when I corrected the validation errors on the site. In the meantime I used the Text Control plugin.

    Hi

    in the stylesheet it won't look like <p>, sorry, that's html

    typically in the style sheet you will see
    #content p { .....
    although that is theme dependent.

    If you don't find it, and you see there IS a div with id="content" in the index.php file, you can add this to the stylesheet at the bottom
    #content p { margin-bottom: 10px; }

    STVWIF, adding that line of code did the trick.

    Thanks all.
