How Do I Fix Paragraph Format in WP Theme?

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by dscurlock, Apr 12, 2014.

    Here is an example:

    Correct Paragraph
    Sentance1
    Sentance2
    Sentance3
    <line break>
    Sentance1
    Sentance2
    Sentance3

    Paragraph run-on
    Sentance1
    Sentance2
    Sentance3
    Sentance1
    Sentance2
    Sentance3

    in other words, there seems to be no proper carriage return
    between paragraphs; when I view the blog, the text is nothing
    more then just one giant cluster paragraph; they are not separated.

    anyone know how i can fix this...
    Think it has something to do with css/margins, etc...

    Thanks

    Not enough information. Where's the site? What theme? What browser? What does the text look like in the text editor (not the visual one)? Are you getting paras or line breaks in the HTML?

    in the editor, I have to separate the paragraphs by several spaces for it to look right on the blog....
    If I were to copy a normal article with normal separate paragraphs into the text/visual editor, then
    the editor text looks normal, but the display on the blog will be just one giant unformatted article, so if i were to copy/paste a 5 paragraph article in the text editor, then it would look as it should, when I save, it looks as it should, when I look at the blog it self, then all the text is just one giant cluster paragraph.

    As I said:

    Telling us what it looks like in the visual editor is no help at all, I'm afraid. It sounds like your theme CSS has messed with the definitions of <p> and <br>, but it's hard to tell without any information.

    You simply just described the same problem in another way....
    What happens if you have 5 paragraphs, and you remove <P>?
    the outcome is the same; one giant paragraph that would not be separated.

    I already stated that it was most likely css issue.
    most likely something is wrong in style-reset.css or style.css
    I am not a coder, but I would guess that it would have something to
    do with margin, or anything that may separate paragraphs....

    if you have anything specific that I need to display from
    css files then I would be more then happy to post that....

    You already did on one site, remember, but that same flx on another site
    does not appear to have any affect on the paragraph separation...

    does this come to mind?

    That's what happens when someone asks a bunch of questions and you don't answer any of them or provide any of the info they need to help. Kinda like blindfolding us, then expecting us to lead you somewhere.

    Looks like Nigel will sort it out, anyway.
