Formatting Text on Pages

  • I am just finding my way around putting text on my website, and am not familiar with the text formatting. I have gone through some of the WordPress lists to get a list of what different tags for paragraphs, bold, italic, font size, style, colour, but can’t find anything.

    Additionally, I find that doing something seemingly harmless changes the look of a page. I inserted a picture onto this page http://www.equinoxe.org.uk/?page_id=5
    and it removed the spaces between all the paragraphs. I can’t get them back!

    Can anyone help – a list of what commands and tags do what to get the text looking how I want.

    Many thanks

    Tim

  • To simplify your work with style, it would be a good thing to do all styling within the styleshhet of your theme. AS it is, you are also applying styles directly to the (X)HTML elements, as in a post `<div style=”text-align:center;>”

    Thanks for your reply. I am not my website builder, I am just wanting to write the pages and posts within it. Where is the stylesheet of my theme? Where do I find a list of what tags do what, as I have never worked with <div things before. All I need to know is where on this I find instructions on formatting text within the document. Searches on “italic text”, “Bold text”, “editing text” show me sweet nothing!

    My sole experience of html has been <b> <i> <u> and <a hre= etc , and I need to know where to start with the similar tags in wordpress.

    Many thanks

    Looking at the source of your page it is a little strange. Using standard WordPress then you should be Ok with the HTML tags you already know and use. But your main post has some odd in-line formatting which shouldn’t really be there. I’m happy to talk you through it if you like – we can take it off the forum. You can email me at andy at yellowswordfish dot com.
