There are some WordPress themes that won’t allow users to use regular paragraph tags. Meaning, no matter if they use the WYSIWYG editor or enter code, hitting return or typing <p> or <br> won’t make line breaks in text. Like this:
However, there is a way to fix it (which took me about an hour of message board reading to finally find).
It’s sort of a pain and you really can’t use the WYSIWYG editor to do it.
In the code window, anytime you want a line break, you have to type <br /*> <br /*>.
This is the only way I’ve found to make them. What makes it a pain, is if you want to edit a post, you have to re-enter all of them that you originally put in. Which means if you forget one, you have to edit the post and enter them all.
