Can't do hard returns in my text--suggestions?

  1. My blog is a comic blog, so it's mostly one large image (the comic) with a little text for the title and intro, and sometimes a little text that follows the comic. Today I'm trying to post some text that follows my comic image and I'm having trouble getting separations between paragraphs. In the section I've titled Product Information I should have a total of 5 paragraphs, but I'm only able to get one proper paragraph and then the rest of the text is all together with no spacing. Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is unsettledskies.wordpress.com.

  2. a) Go to Settings > Writing: tick the option “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically”, click Save Changes.
    2) Edit the post, switch the editor to Text (=code), and update after removing all of these:
    <div>
    and all of these:
    </div>

    Then you'll be able to add paragraph breaks the normal way.

    In the future, never copypaste from other sources such as Word into the Visual editor: it introduces wrong code that messes things up. If you paste, paste into the Text editor.

  3. Hey, thanks for you help! Yes, I am guilty of pasting the text in the visual editor from where I originally wrote it. Not only did you tell me exactly what to do to fix the immediate problem, you also showed me how to access the usually hidden code, which is going to come in really handy in the future. I've got all my text just the way I want it now--couldn't have done it without you!
