    Hi everybody,

    Lately my wp is not alowing me to create breaks in my copy. No matter how many times I hit the return key to create a line break, it doesnt show on the front end. Even if I manually input the tag
    into the source code, still it doesnt create the breaks in the front end.

    Do you think this has anything to do with the autostop wp feature? or might a be a glitch on my theme ? ( I ‘m using the Unsigned wootheme), Or a plugin I am using?

    Have you had a similar problem?

    I have tryed several different visual editors and no editor. Always the same problem

    Please help!

    thanks!– Puela


    @Puela— Are the

    tags saving? If so, it may be a CSS issue. What’s the url?

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your help!

    I dont thing the tags are saving. Wp eliminates the tags, no matter how many times I write them directly in the html code, still it doesnt create the breaks in the front end as you can see in the url:

    i have tried on a different theme: same problem, I have tried deactivating the visual editors: same problem

    Sometimes also the system changes the size of the font on its own. You might be right, it could be CSS.

    I really appreciate your input.

    Best– Puela


    @Puela— please publish that page.

    @Puela— I don’t know what “I get the same results” means. Please be absolutely clear and specific with the issue on this page.
    Which paragraph?
    Which words?
    Which Pictures?
    What’s wrong with them?
    How should they look?

    Puela Lulnaris

    Yes. You are right:

    In the middle of the page, from the words: * Ayshe and her ensemble will perform Dance of Carmen…. to the end of the page, both the photos and the paragraphs are mushed together.

    I have not been able to create line breaks between them.

    Do you know what is the solution?

    Puela Lulnaris

    i just found a temporary solution: I have been adding horizontal rule as a way to get my paragraph breaks to show up in the front end and it seem to be working. But it is not ideal.

    Wp should input the paragraph breaks automatically. Do you think this has to do with the autostop feature?

    I am really out of my wits, because even when I add the tag
    to create the breaks among the paragraphs, wp doesn’t take them and doen’t save them.

    Have you ever see this before?


    @Puela— The source looks a bit messy. Here’s a quick fix for this page. Add this to your STYLE.CSS file:

    img.alignleft {
    clear: left;

    Thanks Steve,

    that helped immensely with aligning all the photos on the left. However, wp is still not taking the paragraph breaks.

    Any clue for a solution?

    Thanks so very much for your help. You are a WP Hero!


    @Puela— I don’t understand the situation 100%. If this worked in the past, but now it doesn’t, you need to narrow down the culprit:
    -deactivate each plugin
    -switch to the TwentyEleven theme

    If the problem fixes itself, then you can narrow it down from there.
