I am trying to do simple line spacing and paragraph spacing using the wordpress.com Visual Editor. I can't figure out how to add more than one blank line.
See this Support page: http://support.wordpress.com/code/
It says that I can use the line break tag
<br /> and paragraph tag
<p> in my page/post content. However the Visual Editor strips out every instance of my (br) and (p) tags.
Being able to add extra lines is critical on this page: http://gulfcoastblacksmith.wordpress.com/gallery/
I want the second image on the page to start like a new paragraph, left justifies, below the first image, with an extra line between the first image (and its related text) and the second image (and its related text).
I can't make this work. The Visual Editor is stripping out very method I am using to add extra lines, such as simply hitting the Enter key to add several blank lines, or Shift-Enter, or the
<br /> tag, or the
<p> tag. Nothing works.
I even changed my theme to see if the problem is related to the theme I am using, however the same thing happened with a different theme, so it seems to be a Visual Editor issue.
I know I can turn the Visual Editor off and just use html, however many of my other authors would be lost. They absolutely have to use the Visual Editor.
I need a solution, please. Thanks.
