Support » Fixing WordPress » Processing line breaks in Pages like in Posts?

    Well, I’ve searched, and I’ve seen people talking about how to STOP WordPress from automatically turning double line breaks into HTML paragraphs, but nobody seems to want to do that MORE.

    I just want the content on static pages to behave like the content in other posts – is that so much to ask? 😉

    Right now, when you add content to a Post, you can separate paragraphs by a double line break and WordPress works it wondrous magic – voilà, paragraphs are separated by the <p>tag in the site. But if you add content to a Page, it doesn’t do that.

    All well and good, because I can see how you might want to avoid that, but how can I get WP to process ‘Page’ posts like ‘Post’ posts?

    The content of Post and Page are treated the same by WP, as far as I know.
    Is this not CSS-related issue? Check the source code and see if the paragraph tags are inserted or not.

    It’s definitely not CSS. I checked the source, and it’s formatted just as I did in the form, i.e., there is a blank line between what should be paragraphs. But no <p> tags.

    What plugins do you use?
    Do you have link to the website?

    AHA! GREAT QUESTION!!

    Because as it turns out I’m looking at the home page which is pulling in page content using – TA DA! – the include page plugin. If I look at the actual PAGE instead of that home page, it shows up correctly.

    Now I still want to use that handy plugin, but at least I now know where to search.

    Thanks Alphaoide!

    ps- The site is still under development (and it’s for a client), so for the moment I’m not going to link to the site until I REALLY need help. (Likely any day now… 🙂
