From a newbie and HTML illiterate: How do I get the spacing in my text to look normal. See my site at
It will look more normal if you make the paragraphs justify left instead of full justification. With the latter, the software has to spread things out to achieve the justification.
When I write a post I press enter to go make a paragraph. But when I post it all the words string together like I had never pressed enter at all. How do I get my post to behave?
What browser and operating system are you using?
I’m on a Mac 10.4.11 using Safari 3.0.4
The only way I have found to do it is by going to the code tab and placing paragraph code.
The TinyMCE editor that wordpress uses for writing pages and posts is not fully compatible with Safari and you will find problems in other areas as well.
I would suggest downloading the Firefox or Camino or Flock browsers as they are the most compatible with wordpress.
Alternately, you can go to “my profile” in the upper right of your dashboard and uncheck “use visual rich text editor,” click “update profile and then you will be doing all your writing in code view. Some, including myself, find this a little confusing since in addition to the text of your post, you will see all the html code for your formatting.
Another alternative is to use an offline blog editor.
Thanks mate. I will look into these options now.
