OK. So i've tried updating wordpress countless times, I've tried enabling//removing markdown, I've tried using other plugins and i've tried everything but restoring WordPress 1.x
Still no matter what I do I CAN NOT GET LINE BREAKS when editing or creating posts. Paragraphs finish
with NO breaks in between. Also when I Copy & Paste a post from the internet into wordpress (cross-posting is a key-element of my blog and had NO trouble with the really old, previous version of wordpress) it keeps font settings ETC from the other pages.
I also get errors mentioned in another topic, when I save & continue editing, then later publish a post, the post publishes fine; but I recieve an error.
I am not the only editor on this site (http://olivebranchoptimism.net) and the other editor is not yet HTML savvy, and as such I NEED the wordpress features to work!!!
When someone writes a post with line breaks, THEY NEED THE LINE BREAKS. I can't go through every post adding <BR><BR> at the end of every paragraph manually, it's impractical.
Anyone else had this trouble? Any way to fix this??? Is it fixed in the 2.1.x versions????????
I really can't see any reason for it. Supposedly wordpress would detect double-returns, and input <p> tags accordingly to show a break; but this doesnt happen either. It is however inserting <p> tags at the beginning of paragraphs, and tags at the end....
lukey at iinet.net.au if you could email any suggestions?? I'm stumped. I've been trying for a month (albiet in what little spare time I have) to fix the issue. I can't. I need your help!
