Spacing between paragraphs

    There’s way too much spacing between paragraphs. How do I fix that? I see that I’m supposed to go to layout.css, but I don’t know where I find it.

    The blog I need help with is



    It’s important to know that Blog editors and wordproccessers are not the same and do not work the same way. The web standard is one blank line only, so you cannot add more blank lines by pressing return repeatedly 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:

    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 (Text) editor, a single click of ENTER will give you a single-spaced line, and two clicks of ENTER will result in double spaced lines.


    Going to layout.css sounds like advice about the software, which is a little different than See to learn about the differences.

    To change the spacing between paragraphs in the main content areas for the Twenty Eleven theme, start with this:

    div#primary p {
    	padding-bottom: 0.9em;

    Add it to the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page in your blog dashboard.

    Note that you can adjust the “0.9em” number to make it smaller or larger.
