Firstly, I'm still using 2.9.2 - yes I'm sure I should upgrade, but that will be another question ;)
However, I've successfully built quite a reasonable site with 2.9.2 and maintained it over a few years - http://www.mulucaves.org
Recently, however, I've noticed that in the visual editor, no amount of carriage returns can create paragraph breaks. It looks like it's happening in the editor, but it's not reflected when you preview your page. WYSIWYG it most certainly ain't!
Even editing using the HTML editor doesn't improve things. Adding '<p>' or '
' tags would make most html pages respond with a break or line gaps...but not here, no response whatsoever.
Basically I can't add simple paragraph and line breaks to my pages - the most fundamental of writing requirements!!
What on earth is going on?....
