Paragraph Spacing Too Close

    For some reason my paragraph spacing isn’t transferring from my edit to the live site. Even if I press enter a few times after the paragraph, it erases it after clicking “update.” I have tried “shift+enter” among other suggestions I have read, but none seem to work.

    Here is a link to show how it is cramming the post together:

    Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

    The blog I need help with is



    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).

    Every theme has a maximum displayed image width so it’s important to keep that in mind when posting multiple images side-by-side. If you want two images to be side by side on the same line start by setting the alignment of both images to left. To prevent the staggered effect what you do is insert the following snippet of code into the HTML editor after each image/text pair:
    <p style=”clear:both;”>TEXT HERE</p>



    Thanks for responding, but that really doesn’t help. I am not trying to place images side by side. I am trying to put a thumbnail image to the left where the text wraps around it, then hit enter, and do it again.
