Support » Fixing WordPress » Old formatting issues – spaces don't register

  • Hey everyone,

    So hopefully you guys can help me solve this riddle as I am lost at how to fix this issue.

    A couple months ago we updated our website and our blog, in doing so I copied over the database and all the old posts. However, for some reason posts older than 2+ years are having format issues. Instead of spacing correctly, the entire blog is bunched up. You can see an example below.


    Now looking at the post I can see that there is no html to signify paragraph breaks and it generally looks like a text document with only a couple <h1> tags in there. I have been going through by hand on these posts adding <br \> tags and the correct <h4> tags where necessary, obviously this is EXTREMELY time consuming and as there are years of old blogs that need to eventually be updated, I was looking for a way to simplify this issue.

    My theory, is that there was some wordpress plugin in place on the old site (I did not manage this) that fixed the format issues and displayed the posts correctly, however somewhere down the road it got fouled up.

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix or maybe even speed up this process?

    Thank you!
