too much space between images

  1. All of a sudden after I publish a post, all the images have big spaces in between them. Please see my last post to see what I mean. I have done a lot of posting and never had this problem before!

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

  2. The blog linked to your username is not a free hosted WordPress.com, so if that's the blog in question you are posting to the wrong support forum for your software and need to post here > http://wordpress.org/support
    And read > WordPress.com vs WordPress.org

  3. Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have any blogs on the .org - so I'm confused.
    I am referring to http://photoartbydonna.wordpress.com

  4. Please change the zenfolio site linked to your username then and replace that link with your .wordpress.com blog link. Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

    The reason you have those spaces is because you are creating them by clicking the Enter key over and over again. Blog editors are not word processers. They operate differently.

    The alignment icons in the WordPress editor are for aligning text; they are not for aligning images. They are used to achieve wrapping text around images on either the right or left hand side, or to display an image that’s centered without text on either side of it. If the text beside the images does not occupy the same amount of space that the image beside it does then the text wrapping will continue and the images and text that follow will have a staggered appearance.

    Align-left means position left, with the rest of the content wrapping around the right side of the image.
    Align-right means position right, with the rest of the content wrapping around the left side of the image.
    Align-center means position center, with no wrap-around (= the rest of the content below the image).

    WordPress Formatting and Spacing

    You will need to edit the post in the HTML editor and remove every block of this code below from it and then click "update".

    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
    <p> </p>
  5. Thanks for including instructions! I did the first thing with no problem. Back to the spacing problem. I don't think I pressed the Enter key over and over. I did go in to edit the post in HTML, but didn't see any code that looked like what you showed me. What seems odd is that I have been making posts for quite a while and this only began happening recently.
    Should I go back and take out all the images and start over again?
    Thanks so much for your help!

  6. Update: I noticed that the look of the code you said to delete was different in the email notification I got of your post. So I went back to edit again and found what it looked like there and deleted it. It worked. Thank you!!!!!
