    I much prefer double spaces after periods. I know that I can force this using the   html, but is there any way to keep double spaces after periods when pasting in content from an editor such as word, notepad, etc? In other words, so I don’t have to search out every one and add the  ?

    The blog I need help with is rationaldb8.wordpress.com.

    There’s no automatic solution I am aware of. What you get will be what the theme is coded to produce unless you continue to code this at the end of every sentence.

    Thank you timetheif. Is there some way to tell which theme uses which punctuation protocol? Are you certain that some do code for double spaces after periods?

    There is no way filter for that. I’ve been here for over 6 years and I can’t recall any themes off the top of my head that I can spiel off – sorry.

    I’m sorry, you lost me: I’m not sure what you mean by “there is no way filter for that?”

    There is no filter for that feature that one can use in the Themes Showcase searchbox to locate themes that provide what you want.

    Ok, thank you! I wasn’t familiar with the filter option — I’m pretty new to wordpress.

    Timethief, is there any “global search/find and replace” sort of function that can be used when composing posts?
