Support » Themes and Templates » Space Between Paragraphs

  • I am new to the whole HTML thing, but have learned a few basics from a site online. I’m using the theme “Professional-Blog 1.3” by Bingo Web Design and I can’t seem to ever get a space between paragraphs. I have no idea if this is s WordPress thing or the formatting of the theme I am using. The paragraph will start anew when I use the appropriate html code:
    (“<p>”), but I can’t get any space between the paragraphs for a more professional look. I even try using two or three “p” tags to no avail. Can somebody help me?

  • you have to define it in the CSS..
    please post the URL of the blog….

    @ krembo99

    Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with CSS formatting. But I AM a quick study and follow directions fairly easily. tell me what to do.

    I have exactly the opposite problem concerning it.
    How to sometimes avoid the space between paragraphs.


    .postContent P
    	margin-top: 1.3em; /**or any other value you want**/

    also, your css has numerous problems that make the browsers render incorrectly.

    Fix this :
    Line 109

    border-radius:3px; (DELETE)

    Line 200

    position:relatvie; /**Change to relative

    line 242

    Delete “}

    you have some more … but start with those

    @rmerey When you write a post go to HTML tab and look for that paragraph that you want no space and add this:

    <p style="margin:0;padding:0;">
       Your text should be here...

    Switching back & forth between the Visual Editor and the HTML tab isn’t a good idea. The switching itself can seriously mess up your post’s formatting.

    @ krembo99
    I haven’t a CLUE as to where and what you are talking about. Could you possibly include the MISSING details of your tutorial.

    @krembo99 Okay, I changed a couple of things — hopefully I did them right. There are no line numbers to follow Thus, I had to look for groupings of data that matched what you mentioned. I didn’t know where to delete the “}”
    Still nothing changed.

    @ krembo99 Okay, I think I found the out of place, extra “}” and deleted it.


    did you add

    .postContent p
    	margin-top: 1.3em; /**or any other value you want**/

    to your css file?

    That should give your paragraphs more spacing.(Make sure the “p” in .postContent p is lowercase as krembo99 typed it in uppercase.)

    you still have the error on line 242

    Delete “}”

    Thanks for all the help, guys — especially krembo99 and miocene22. I finally got the results I sought. krembo99 – I think I removed the “}” from line 242, but I didn’t count (and as I said, the lines aren’t numbered in my editor). But I really thank you for you kindness. I learned the limited html at my disposal from W3 Schools and I haven’t yet availed myself of any of their css tutorials. At some point, I will, but I appreciate your patience. Fell free to tell me about any other errors that you see. Peace!

    Krembo, I am having the same problem with the Journalist theme! Started today… any new post does not include any spacing between paragraphs, no matter how many times I hit the Return key…:-( Would love some of your expertise as well!
