    I am trying to enter poems. My line spacing is being deleted and all the stanzas are being compressed together.
    Sometimes it holds but if I do any editing it collapses it.

    Thanks!

    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 epeatedly like you would do with a typewriter or in a word processing application. If you want to learn yow to format and space your posts and pages see:

    (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/

    Thank You! I finally found that link! It was weird sometimes
    it would take a paste and keep the spacing other times it wouldn’t.
    I couldn’t tell what was going on. Thanks for taking time to respond
    to my question!
