Been trying to edit the About Me page; putting more space between paragraphs. I do that and update, view it and no changes. I've upgraded WordPress. Maybe I should trash it and start over? Any suggestions? Thank you

Thanks Nat, this will help a lot of folks. Older versions of WP were much easier to handle these kinds of things. TinyMCE, for example had a "hard" BR command that took care of this problem. Now it's working only if you GO PRO with WP edit.

I have not yet updated to 4.0. Too many things I don't like. Too many to list here.

Just one. Try to insert an image right with text wrap. OK, that's easy. Now try to add a caption to the image and the sucker does not right align and the caption is not showing.

Take caption out and it works. Who is checking these updates before release?

When making spaces with wordpress editor ... I had this issue ... when you make the space you have to use clear formatting ... it is a little diagonal placed rectangular box (looks kind of like an eraser)
anyway ... make the space and then hit that little icon. That is what worked for me ... after spending two very frustrating days! lol M

Well, that's a handy dandy little icon I just learned about. Thank you so much, Melody. It worked. Sometimes I think I need a whole bunch of lessons on how to use WordPress. Thank you again for helping me not to have the frustrating days...lol I do have them in other areas. :)

Sometimes if you go into Text mode instead of Visual you can adjust the space between paragraphs and it will work. WordPress is just finicky sometimes.

Tried that too and I couldn't tell where the paragraphs were. There was so much stuff that I couldn't even see what I had wrote. Thanks for answering.

After you UPDATE, click on VIEW POST and it will look as we see it LIVE. IF you don't VIEW POST, it might still look funny.

Thank you for such a quick reply. I updated again and my wordpress says view page, didn't see a view post. There is no change. I'm stumped.
