    Since I have had my blog this has driven me insane….
    when I am writing a new post, in the edit stage – it has beautiful spacing. As soon as I preview it, it is chaos.
    I will spend HOURS switching from one to the next trying to coax it into giving me a space between a parapgraph, a sentence or a picture, but no, no matter what I do, some hidden code, (or god) that I can’t see or understand, WILL NOT ALLOW IT!

    I have read other ppl having the same prob, but do not understand the solution.

    please help me in stupidly simple language..

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is: susanmoirmackay.wordpress.com

    Hi susanmoirmackay,

    Can you pin point the exact issue where you are trying to do something and how it is working? Maybe screenshot of both your editor and the preview would be of great help. Perhaps, we will need to add the editor CSS in the theme but its not always accurate.

    Thanks,
    Chandra

    Thank you for your reply.
    I do not know how to post the screen shots in this box. I have tried copy and paste and dragging it into this area, but it does not seem to work.

    is a great example, you can see that there is no spacing between any of the paragraphs or above the first picture. see below, I have copied and paste the first part directly from my edit page, you can see the spacing, which does not show up on the published post.

    How do I make my published page, (see link) look like my edit page, (see excerpt below)?

    My children are posing in front of me, lips flared, bottoms sticking out – with dramatic obscenity and two fingers held up in front of their faces.

    This, they tell me, is the new style for ‘selfies’.

    Selfies, in case you somehow missed it, is a self portrait (photograph) posted online. And the point of the selfies, to my cynically bemused eye, is to remind the world, if not yourself, how fabulous you look! Or an opportunity for self flagellation or bullying, when the image does not fit the narrow confines of the current ‘hot’ look.

    Digital cameras have unleashed the concept of self portrait to the masses. Traditionally self portraits have a long history. Frida Khalo, Lucien Freud, Picasso, Egon Schiele,Van Gogh, and Courbet all have painted striking, revealing self portraits. Frida Khalo’s art was effectively a series of self portraits where she intimately shared her deepest fears and feelings.

    Can you please go to the “Text” mode of that editor and see how it looks? I think, you are copying the text from somewhere and pasting it in the editor and I see extra codes like this which shouldn’t be there.

    <div id="yui_3_13_0_1_1384902927884_7942" style="text-align:justify;">My children are posing in front of me, lips flared, bottoms sticking out – with dramatic obscenity and two fingers held up in front of their faces.</div>

    So, instead of normal p tags, I see div and different styles all over your content. This is making the spaces to disappear. You might want to clean up the content.
