Formatting post text
The post editor will not maintain the formatting of my text. If I do:
Blah, Blah. *return* *return* Blah, Blah.
My text is formatted as if I did only one return. All the text in my post is scrunched together. Also, if I try to center a photo in my post, it just gets shoved back over to the left. Is this normal?
Try using the regular editor, not the rich editor which I have a feeling that you are using. You’ll have better control over your coding. You might have to throw in a
<p>mark or two to get it right.
I believe the
<center>tags get stripped out but I may be wrong.
What other tags besides
What other tags besides <center> get stripped?
Try doing a search for ‘html tags stripped’. It’s been covered in this forum before.
Similar problem: When I import text from MS Word, my display goes nuts. Is there an easy way to import text…like converting it to a certain font style and size first?
Dumb question but where is the search function on this forum? I haven’t found it yet :(
Um – nevermind. I found it.
Doesn’t appear there is one, right bummer, huh?
Try this in google: site:wordpress.com/forums and after a single space, your search terms.
[so where IS it then? I STILL haven’t found it…. must like be right under my nose, right?]
Naw, it’s not easy to find. I found the reference in the sticky at the top of the forums page. The form is here http://wordpress.com/forums/search.php This needs to be on the front page!
Oh for…. sheesh. Well, I don’t see the pink stickies – read ’em but now have ’em “RIP’d” because all that pink is so annoying and takes up so much room…. yeah, I remember reading that now, just forgot.
Thanks! I bookmarked the damn thing, you’re entirely right – it NEEDS to be somewhere visible and logical…. LIKE THE FRONT PAGE!
I’m having problems with hard returns getting dropped when a post is published. I then need to re-edit and still sometimes the problem persists. If I go into HTML mode and insert the hard return it seems to stick.
Minor quibble on what is a great program, but please fix it.
