    Hello. Please can you tell me step by step how to create paragraph breaks in the left hand bio text on Hatch. I'm hosted by Godaddy. I found the home php folder, but I cant seem to locate the stylesheet that has the bio info. Or is there a way to create it in WP...?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ooooo Dausin, I solved it. You can actually do it in your WP dashboard. Ok so follow these steps:
    1. Go to appearance tab look down at the bottom of the list and you'll see editor
    2. It brings up the Stylesheet (style.css)
    3. Now go to your user page and copy and paste your bio text and then delete it and save
    4. Go to the stylesheet and look for this bit of code:

    	#site-description { font-size: 1.166666666666667em; }
    	#author-bio {

    5. Where it says 'site-description' copy and paste your bio text. Where you want to create a new paragraph add this:


    5. I must admit I had to fiddle around a bit to figure it out but it did work.

    Good luck,
    let me know how you get on! :) niksy

    If I've got any of the steps wrong just let me now so I can edit my post correctly for the next person that needs this info!

    I also got this advice from a lovely WP user, also using the Hatch template.

    Hi Niksy,

    I inserted paragraph breaks into my bio on the homepage by downloding the "HTML in Author Bio" plugin and then you can use HTML tags to update the profile section.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions! Good luck with your site.
