Line break in the Editor
I have read in the news Blog that you have updated the Editor. But the new handling of line breaks is worse than before. If I make a line break through “enter” there is always much space between the two lines. This is because each manual line break causes a new coding. If i earlier clicked on the end of the last line and did press “del” the p tags disappeared and the line break was caused through a “br” tag. This is not working anymore. If I click “del” on the last line before the line break the editor deletes the complete line break. So I will have only line breaks through p tags or none line breaks, if I do not add a br tag in the editor manually. The earlier behavior was much better, because it left me the choice if I want a big line break with more spacing or just a small line break with br.
I hope you understand what I mean. If not tell me and I will make some screenshots.
Are you using TinyMCE – the rich text editor?
Easy answer is turn it off. I don’t use it on any of my blogs and don’t have any problems.
If you’ve already turned it off then *shrugs* I’m sorry I have no idea…
Yes, I am using it. But it did work before the update on the Tiny Editor. That’s why I am so surprised.
From the other threads, it appears that they are having issues with it.
How could I get only one empty lines between two lines of text and not two in comments ? (this does not happen in posts).
It is the same thing for my readers of for me as administrator.
When I type a line break I get two blank lines and not one.
In the menu Comments Comments, a comment appears with one empty line between two lines of text but on the blog itself it appears with two lines.
I tried changing the empty line by
but the editor deletes this html tag.
So at the moment there is no choice between two lines or no space at all.
Do you have any solution ?
I think this is a part of your theme – it is not happening in mine. a paragraph mark in mine just does a single line break, not the double you are getting.
Yes, it is a part of the theme (here Andreas09) : a single line break is always replaced by a double line break ; I think that it is not normal.
I tried two other themes : Fardastic and Garland. This time, when I type a line break, there is a single line break in the code and it is shown as a single line break. If I type two line breaks, they are shown as a single line break but in the code there are two line breaks.
I think it would be necessary that WordPress does what the author wants : no line break if he does not type any line break, one single line break if he types a line break and two line breaks if he types two line breaks and not any kind of change behind his back :-)
