View Full Version : Where do my "enter"s go?

08-13-2015, 01:44 AM
When I am writing a post and use an "enter" to space out my paragraphs, they disappear after I submit. Everything begins to run together as one long line that wraps around. Do I need to do something extra for the enters to show up?

I checked your posts (this one and the other two) using the "edit" feature. I'm seeing double spaces in this post after sentences (not sure if you were trying to use "enter" or not) and one place in another post with five spaces (which, in most software, results from using "tab").

FWIW, I use a double "return" (and am on a desktop Mac) and those show up as paragraph breaks with a space between (like you see here).

Can you give me more information about what device you're using? Also, what browser (and version)? I'm no software guru (far from it:roflmao:), but maybe with some clues, someone else can help out (and the gurus always seem to want that information).

I'm currently using Debian Linux 8.0 (Jessie) with the Iceweasel web browser (38.2.0). I just made an update to my web browser, so perhaps the enters will show up. I will try a double return after this sentence. Also, last night, my 2 posts in the Previa forum had a few enters in them, but my previous post in this forum was only a single paragraph. Edit: Looks like the enters didn't show up.

This post is from android phone. I will do two returns after this sentence.

Test 1

Test 2

Edit: There we go! I didn't have javascript enabled, so it wasn't correctly inserting the <br></br> tags. Problem solved!
