    Hello, could someone tell me how to force a line break? I want empty lines between paragraphs or after pictures etc., and it keeps ignoring my hard returns.
    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is laurentdunienville.com

    Hi dulaurent,

    To add line breaks instead of paragraph breaks, use Shift+Enter in the Visual Editor, or use the
    tag between lines in the HTML editor. Let me know if I can provide further assistance!

    Thank you. I meant paragraph breaks, but more than one. It doesn’t register.

    If I understand correctly, you want to have extra space after paragraphs? By default, the Visual Editor strips empty paragraph tags. There are a few things we can try to work around this.

    1. In the “Text” editing mode, you can insert an empty div tag with a height between the paragraphs where you want extra space. For example, try dropping this inside your post and see what it does (again, make sure you click the “Text” tab in the post editor first):

    <div style="height: 15px;"></div>

    Adjusting the height depending on how much space you want. This method is a bit messy, but it does the job.

    2. You can increase the bottom margin of your paragraphs. For example, something like this will add extra space at the bottom of that paragraph. You’ll need to be in the “Text” Editor for this to work:

    <p style="margin-bottom: 20px;">Your text here</p>

    3. You can follow the methods listed here on formatting poetry: http://en.support.wordpress.com/writing-and-formatting-poetry/ . This might not apply to you, but there are some tips that you might find helpful.

    I hope this helps, let me know if I can clarify anything or provide further assistance.
