Wordpress Paragraph Spacing Question

When I create "pages" on my wordpress site, they work fine, and the space between each paragraph is correct.

But when I create "posts" and put spaces between paragraphs, and then publish the page, all the spaces are gone, and the paragraphs are close together.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

      Would Front End Editor be able to make the spacing correct?

      I think there might be an easier solution, since the "pages" all are correctly spaced between paragraphs. Only the "posts" don't correctly space.

    Hi there, I either edit the css within the selected theme (its usually in style.css under .entry p depending on your theme) or perhaps use br tags in conjunction with p tags.
    This usually adds spaces between p tags

    The first question to start troubleshooting is "Do the posts have <p> tags in them when they get posted by Wordpress?" If they do, then this is a simple CSS change. If they do not, then there's another problem and the solution will be different.

    If you don't know how to check for the <p> tags, shoot us a URL and I can check for you.

  • Try clicking on the HTML button, and adding in either this...

    <b></b> Start your new paragraph text here.

    or this....

    <p></p> Start your new paragraph text here.

    ...everywhere that you want to have a new paragraph begin.

    Good luck!

    I had the same problem...put your admin page in HTML and insert <br> where you want the paragraph breaks to be.
