wordpress: all whitelines have disappeared after upgrade.

by belgianguy 4 replies
Since updating to the last version, all the white lines (or blank lines) after a hard enter have disappeared. Now my text just look like one gigantic block of text.
Anyone else had this issue? How do I fix it?

I tried applying a margin-bottom to <p>, but this puts margins below pretty much everything. There must be something that has been changed inside wordpress that is causing this?

    We have many sites upgraded and had not issue like this.
    Can you share your url. It could be your theme related?

    Cannot tell without looking on the site.

    You said you updated WordPress, but then said you did not update the theme.
    You need to start there.
    There were significant updates to WP and if your theme is not updated to reflect changes, you'll have issues.
    The editor received many upgrades in WP v3.5+ so you really need to update the theme first.

      Yes, it appears that your padding for your <p> has been set to 0px.

      So it's the style sheet But as you haven't updated the theme it's a strange one! I've not seen it happen before!

      The style sheet in your pages source is /twentyeleven/style.css

      You could try adding in
      .entry-content p {
      padding: 0 0 10px 0;
      }

      That'll restrict the changes to your P tags in that div...

      For it to have changed, did you also update any plugins etc... cause somethings changed ( to be blindingly obvious ) .

      You could go down the route of disabling your plugins and see , if any, affects things.

      Not sure what "other" things have been affected so that's about all I can suggest.

      Cheers
