    wordpress issue

    ok, this seems pretty lame, but I can't make paragraph breaks within wordpress. I spent the past hour researching on Word Press website and I found tons of other people who had the same issue, but no solution.

    Just wondering if someone here might know what needs to be done to fix the paragraph break.

    this is what I am talking about: http://www.terrorhotties.com/?p=33

    What do you think is a solution?

    Go to your user profile on your WordPress installation and turn off the text editor. Then type in your paragraphs manually.

    That's what I do.

    I don't quite understand your issue either. Paragraphs tags are there in your post. If you're talking about the spacing between paragraphs, this is an issue with your theme. Increasing padding between paragraphs would fix this.

    Exactly, or add/increase the margin-bottom property within your CSS to add visible space between your paragraphs.

    .entry p { margin-bottom: 1em; }

    Yeah, I have the same problem with wordpress. I will type something in the editor and then go to the code and go back to the editor and everything is bunched up. The only way around it for me is to just work on the code and save/publish (without going back to the editor) lame, I know.
