I am at my wit’s end, I have tried everything to get my post to space out properly but no matter what I put WordPress just publishes the post without any spacing as seen here http://visuall.ca/?p=28

Ive tried adding BR but it just disappears. Anybody have a clue why its doing this, its my first time using Wordpress and I am very discouraged by this experience.

I don’t “do” wordpress but if it’s like anything else I have used – if your template uses a particular DIV class for your posts – make sure you have a “clear: both” in the css for that div.

Maybe it will help – maybe not but I am sure others can post a solution here if that doesn’t work for you.

You are using an image in each paragraph so I suppose you want to create space between each paragraph block.

The image floats but the paragraph is not using any clearing method so the image ‘hungs out’. In other words the paragraph does not’ contain’ the image

This is what causes your problem. Use an overflow:hidden; on the p or clear:both; or any other clearing method.

To really make sure that all browsers play nice, I find this resource helpful:

clearing methods by browser

When you want a section to ‘separate’ add this to the HTML :


<p class="clear">&nbsp;</p>

Make sure you insert that with the ‘HTML View’ when editing your post.

A rather long workaround for what is solved with either

<p>&nbsp;</p>
or, what i used up to this point,
&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br />
.... for multiple spaces.

For some reason I’m in the habit of grossly spacing out separate thoughts. A lot.

For a relatively simple problem, I did this:

Pastie

Put that in functions.php, then for line breaks you can put [br]

you can specify how many, instead of hitting return a million times, or copy/pasting a whole bunch of

&nbsp;<br />
, you can write [br size=”5”] or something.

I know this thread is old but anyone else notice the title area for the forum thread allowed a <br /> tag for this post to be used? I would have thought that html would have been stripped out of the title area. Just an observation :D
