How to make line breaks?

  1. How can I make line breaks in my posts?

    I want to post some work, part of which is proper line breaks. When the editor messed up line breaks, I did some research on the issue, and near as I can tell there isn't yet a resolution,

    tried a few of the workarounds, but none of those worked right.

    So -- what is the status of this issue? Or how can I make line breaks in my WP.com posts?

    I'm wanting to do this on a WP.com hosted blog, not my own installation.

    thanks!

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

  2. In the Visual editor, you click return for a paragraph break and shift-return for a line break. In the HTML editor, you click return twice for a paragraph break and once for a line break.

  4. thanks you both very kindly :)

  5. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog.

  6. well ... I got the line break thing to work. But I have indented paragraphs in there too, and I can't seem to make those work with the line breaks. I can kind of make it work in the HTML editor, but I've observed that the second I go back to the Visual editor, the whole thing falls apart again.

    At this point I'm inclined to just make a picture of the work in question, and post it that way. Unless you have another suggestion?

  7. solution: use CSS. you're brilliant, thanks.
