Support » Fixing WordPress » Unexplained text breaks / indents in paragraphs

  • This is an odd problem that has been plaguing my site. Sometimes, out of nowhere, a sentence will simply insist on splitting itself up, and continuing on another line, even though there was more than enough space for all the remaining words to fit. This is difficult to explain with words, so let me show you an example:

    Look at the line “parties are forbidden from taking donations from corporations or unions.” The words “from corporations or unions” could all easily fit on a single line, but for some reason the word “unions” is forcibly putting itself on the line below. There doesn’t seem to be anything to explain why this is happening in the code, and the problem happens all the time in random sentences all over my site.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

  • You have a lot of errors (both mark-up and CSS) in the page. Don’t know if the errors would be causing that behavior, but you could start there.

    See Validating a Website for more info.

    Are you, by chance, copying/pasting content from Word?

    No, not copy-pasting. Though I can see how that would definitely be a cause for concern if I was.

    Is there no chance this is a style issue?

    When i look it via firebug i see non braking space ( ). so you might want to edit those post on html tab to remove it. Are you using different editor then tiny-mce (via plugin)?

    I’m just using whatever the default WordPress editor is.

    Okey, they try removing   via the html tab. How many posts you have this problem?
