Having problems adding space after a paragraph

  • Hi all,

    I’m pretty green when it comes to doing HTML but I have fiddled around a little with it before.

    I’m having problems putting space between paragraphs between the letter from the president, and the italics centered paragraph. That’s it.

    I use the <p> after lines and the space doesn’t take on the page.

    I try the visual editor and add space but it doesn’t show either.

    I don’t want anything fancy, just some more space.

    What am I missing?

    Well, from the visual editor, just hit the enter key a couple times.

    From the HTML editor, you can use &nbsp; by itself for a single space, or you can add them in new lines for space, like this:

    &nbsp;
    &nbsp;
    &nsbp;

    Lol, you’d think that hitting the enter key would work, but it doesn’t do anything when I preview!

    Tags worked though.

    Josh, you are the man!

    Well it’s happening again.

    Added the tags but didn’t help. Added more and then the   was there.

    Tried also in the visual editor but nothing happens.

    If you scroll down you can see there are a handful of paragraphs that are sticking together. Very annoying as it should be a simple case of hitting the enter key.

    When I logged in it said wordpress 3.3 if that means anything.

    Looks like you got it working on that page?

    Not sure what page you’re referring to Jarret?

    Oil Recovery from Slop Oil

    operation and calculating the economics of each individual operation.
    Greenhouses for combined production of Vegetable & Fish

    I got the problem. You want space b/w Anticipated Recovery and Oil Recovery.
    This will done if you write the oil recovery in different paragraph(<p>).

    <p>
      <strong>
        <em>Anticipated Recovery of Investment:</em>
      </strong>
      Within 30 months.
    </p>
    <p>
      <strong>
        <em>Oil Recovery from Slop Oil</em>
      </strong>
    </p>

    Thanks pavanluthra

    I didn’t do what you suggested but did this. It’s exactly how it looks on the html edit page. See below.

    figures in the countries and areas of operation and calculating the economics of each individual operation.

    Greenhouses for combined production of Vegetable & Fish

    This seemed to work. Not sure why but I’ll take it.
