    I upgraded to the latest WP version and everytime I write something like this (for example)

    Hello, my name is Julie.
    I am 24 years old.

    When I publish it, it appears like this:

    Hello, my name is Julie. I am 24 years old.

    It appears it’s not accepting line breaks. Any input on this?

  • can we have a URL please?

    oh yeah, sorry.

    here’s my weblog. I have to force the line breaking by adding the line break codes… this is really annoying.

    btw, i love your weblog’s headline: “I don’t want to be a size four… I want to look fantastic in a twelve.”

    still no way to fix this issue. i checked my code and I didn’t do a thing. the problem is when I post things i see the paragraph codes but no line-breaking codes between them, as if something is stripping out br codes.


    Thanks for the compliment on my tagline 🙂 It’s true!

    Are you using the rich text (WYSIWYG) editor or the plain text editor?

    i’m using plain text. i disabled rich text because youtube videos destroy the entire website.

    i remember hearing that some people have to actually double-enter in order to get their line breaks to work properly when using plain text editor…

    i’d advise you try that, rather than using the <BR> tags and <br> tags, because you’re not using them properly right now… the correct way is <br /> (notice the space in there after the r) – the other way still works, for now, but in terms of validating the site, <br> won’t work.



    the double-enter didn’t work. and that’s really weird because this is happening since i upgraded to the latest wp version.

    for now i’ll just keep adding br / tags…



    Check your active plugins. Is any of those “formatting” plugins, like textile, activated?



    hooray! it works now! i don’t know why i had “markdown” plugin activated.
