WordPress.com Quadruple Spacing Glitch When Publishing/Updating Posts
Recently this problem has not been happening as much, under 25% of the time, and so testing this can take a long time since you do not know when it might happen; I tried your recommendations a few times and got tired (which has happened before), so I am not sure if it has stopped completely or not since it might only happen once every 10 posts but you never know.
The problem is probably still there, but just happening less often.
I will try to keep those changes that you recommended again for a week or so, and if the problem happens again I will report it here. ;)
Sounds good – thanks for letting me know!
No problem, thank you. :)
It will be hard not using Zemanta for that long, but I can go back later & use it on those posts. ;)
There are two ways to use Zemanta; enabling it on your blog’s dashboard OR using it in your browser as an extension. Whichever you were using, try the other.
Thank you Raincoaster, I did not know about that extension. :)
I want to try it, but first I want to help troubleshoot what is causing the problem first; and then I could try that extension later I guess, and see if it also causes a problem. ;)
I installed the Zemanta extension for Firefox, Raincoaster, while still using Internet Explorer to troubleshoot this problem; and I like how the Zemanta extension seems to be more updated than the one for WordPress.com with new features/look like images/thumbnails for Related Articles; maybe one day the WordPress.com version of Zemanta will be updated/kept updated and/or get that feature, hopefully.
Thank you for the recommendation Raincoaster. :)
Now I can use Zemanta, while still troubleshooting this issue in another browser. ;)
Glad it helped! I’m a fan of Zemanta.
Yep, it is one of my favorite parts of WordPress.com, if not my favorite, but now I know that it can be used on other services as well thanks to you & the Zemanta extension. :)
Today I made a post in Internet Explorer again (which I am using to troubleshoot the problem), the post published with normal spacing, and then I used Firefox with the Zemanta extension to edit the post to add Zemanta suggestions; and after updating it the spacing quadrupled, and I could see this spacing glitch in Internet Explorer as well but it was caused when using Firefox & Zemanta (extension).
This is only day two or so of testing, so maybe this will eventually happen in Internet Explorer as well, but right now maybe Zemanta (WordPress.com & extension) could be part of the problem; I/we will see eventually I guess.
Thanks for the report!

Just to clarify – were you using this combination before, though, back when the problem first started? Or did you just install the Firefox extension recently? If so, then we’d probably need to rule out the Zemanta extension as the culprit. Thank you for continuing to test!
No, I decided to install the Zemanta extension in Firefox since I have it disabled on WordPress.com while I/we troubleshoot the problem & since I am using Internet Explorer to make posts during this troubleshooting period to see if this happens in Internet Explorer when Zemanta is disabled & without extensions.
The reason that I am mentioning the Zemanta extension too is because so far this problem happens sometimes when either of those two are enabled it seems, but I am not sure if this has ever happened with Zemanta disabled or not yet; since I have done so many tests that I forgot, but I know this has not happened in the last two days when not using Zemanta in any form.
I will continue testing.
Thanks for the update!
You are welcome, and thank you for continuing to help with this, as I continue to try to troubleshoot this problem. :)
I am still slowly troubleshooting this, to avoid fatigue I am just using my regular posts (almost one post a day) in Internet Explorer using the Zemanta extenison at this time, but so far it still has not happened in Internet Explorer yet; but yesterday and/or another day or two it happened in Firefox with the Zemanta extension again but it happens a lot less than it used to, so it is very rare now (less than 10%) of the time.
Good to know. If you turn off the Zemanta extension in Firefox, it might be interesting to see if it ever happens again.
Yep, I had the same idea, I plan on starting to try that again today until it happens again or not. ;)
Well, so far I still have not had this glitch happen in Internet Explorer with or without Zemanta (WordPress.com or extension), only in Firefox sometimes with Zemanta (WordPress.com and/or extension).
Since this seems to only happen to me sometimes and no one else seems to be able to reproduce this issue, I do not see what else I can do, thank you for following this issue Kathrynwp. :)
