Paragraph spacing (8 posts)

    Hi all,

    When I make a new post, even if I try and put a space between paragraphs, using the enter key, when it saves all this formatting is lost.

    For example:

    This is how I want my text.

    With nice gaps between each paragraph.

    But my paragraphs come out like this
    with no spacing at all.

    How can I fix this?

    The only way I can force a gap between paragraphs is to edit the post in HTML and insert: <br class="blank" />

    What the hell is happening?

    Actually, <br class="blank" /> no longer works. It did, but now wordpress ignores all formating for paragraphs.

    This really is mad.

    In your style.css file, you could alter the margin-top or margin-bottom each <p> has. If you post a link, I will type up a sample rule for you to add in your css file...

    Most of the content on that page is within a single set of paragraph tags.
