  2. re: Formatting won't work
    Blog editors and word processors are not the same and do not work the same way. The web standard is one blank line only, so you cannot add more blank lines by pressing return repeatedly like you would do with a typewriter or in a word processing application. If you want to learn how to format and space your posts and pages see:

    If you are working in the VISUAL editor, to get single spacing between paragraphs hold the SHIFT key down and simultaneously click ENTER at the end of the paragraph.

    If you are working in the TEXT (HTML) editor, a single click of ENTER will give you a single-spaced line, and two clicks of ENTER will result in double spaced lines. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/09/13/wordpress-formatting-and-spacing/

  3. Thank you timethief; I have tried all this but with no result. Maybe I am doing something stupid. I have no problems with my WordPress blog and postings. The difficulty is with the header/footer which goes automatically at the end of each post. This is part of my 'profile' and is something to do with Gravatar. I can find no way of making a space between each paragraph. Any other ideas?

  4. Please provide an active link starting with http:// to an example of what you refer to. Or upload a screenshot to your Media Library where Staff can examine it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/make-a-screenshot/

  5. That text is edited in Users > My Profile > About you. Unfortunately that field doesn't accept formatting.
