narrow paragraph spaces

    I’ve just realized that my theme (vigilance) uses annoyingly narrow spaces between paragraphs. I don’t like them–I’d like readers to have a clearer break between paragraphs. But I don’t want to change themes because I’m working on a banner to fit the theme’s pixel requirements–and anyway, it’s a pain to change themes. Is there any way to increase space between paragraphs?

    The blog I need help with is pintsofhistory.com.

    You will get double spacing between paragraphs in every theme here of which I’m aware. When I View your About page that’s exactly what I see. Do you wish to use the HTML editor and insert yet another line between paragraphs using the correct code to do that on each and every paragraph on each and every post and page?

    The space between my paragraphs is very narrow, and other WordPress themes leave a bigger space. I’d like a bigger space. So that’s my question: how do I do that?

    Going through and adding html code to every paragraph is a burdensome solution, but I’ll do it if there’s no other way.

    Thank you!

    If you buy the Custom Design upgrade, then this can be changed permanently via CSS. If you do not want to go that route, you can use inline CSS to give more spacing on a paragraph by paragraph basis This is how you would have to do it (in the HTML tab). You would have to add the opening and closing “p” tags to each paragraph manually in the HTML tab of the editor.

    <p style="margin-bottom: 20px;">All your paragraph text here.</p>

    If you bought the Custom Design upgrade, then this is what you would add to the CSS edit window.

    .entry p {
        margin-bottom: 25px;
    }

    In both case above, you can adjust the 25px value. I just added that as a placeholder.

    You might want to look at perhaps Coraline or Pilcrow which are similar in appearance, but have more spacing between paragraphs.
