Formatting problems

    I have been having problems formatting my post on wordpress.com. When I try to add spacing between paragraphs or put extra spacing in the line for manual indenting, it doesn't recognize it. I am not the only one having this issue.

  2. The information linked to below may help you:
    (2) 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 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. Blog editors and wordproccessers are not the same. 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. For extra space you need appropriate coding in the HTML editor, i.e. adding padding or margin to your paragraph(s). See here:
