Line break after link

  1. So I am using the ChaoticSoul theme for my blog and am trying to insert a link. The link works fine, but for the life of me I cannot get the stupid thing to put a paragraph break after the link. No matter what I do – putting the code in HTML, hitting enter seven times, etc – the editor seems to be taking away all of the paragraph breaks, making the link run up right against the text. Is there some way to remedy this?!

  2. A link to your blog post with the problem would be helpful.

  3. Oh, sorry! I was writing that just as I was heading out.

  4. Have you been playing with various alignments? I see this

    <p style="text-align:center;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">
    <p style="text-align:left;">

    in the page source.

  5. You've messed up the link with various alignment commands. Go to the html editor and replace this:
    <p style="text-align:center;"><a class="aligncenter" title="In the Loop" href="http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/programs/in_the_loop/" target="_blank"><span class="alignleft">In the Loop</span></a></p>
    with this (supposing you want the link in the center):

    <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/programs/in_the_loop/" target="_blank">In the Loop</a></p>
    <p style="text-align:center;"></p>

    You can also delete the trash code vivian pasted above, if it shows in the editor.

  6. Oops! With this:
    <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/programs/in_the_loop/" target="_blank">In the Loop</a></p>

  7. OK ... that worked great (thank you so much!), but it leads me to another question. Since I was posting all of this as I headed out the door yesterday, I didn't notice all of the align left commands were added at the bottom of the code. I know I didn't add them (I used the visual editor because my HTML is rusty at best and simply chose the "align center" option), so I'm wondering if this will be a recurring problem. If it is, at least I now know how to fix it. But that's a bit annoying.

    Again, thanks for all the help! I really do appreciate it!

  8. Which browser are you using? A couple of weeks ago we saw junk code being added by Explorer 6. I looked at the source code of your posts, however, and there's no similar instance.
