I have been struggling with Word Press today. It will not allow me to go to a new paragraph. The cursor will not go below the last paragraph and let me start a new paragraph. Is it me? What am I not doing right?

Have you tried WordPress help tutorials?

Yes and no. When I get upset I look for quick answers. The damn thing worked for me last night, but not this afternoon. I took a quick tour thru some tutorials and could not find the answer. Joy Nelson gave me a tip which I am trying next. Thank you.

I had a similar issue. I restarted my computer and deleted my history and cookies and that worked for me. Not sure if it was just a coincidence or if that is an actual fix for the issue but that's how I fixed it. I hope you find an answer! - Joy

Thank you so much! I ran System Mechanic, but no help there. I'll try that. For some reason we get a lot of MSN junk files and fragmentation. System Mechanic is always telling me that the defrag is overdue, and that's just after 3 days. I think we pick up a lot of cookies and history when doing product research. Peace my love.

Would like to know if that works for you.

Ahh yes Joy ... that sounds about right ... it being more of an individual's computer causing this issue.

Temp files can bog a computer down BIG TIME ... and you should have your website browser set to delete cookies and history upon closing.

I've had my computer do some very weird things whenever temp files have been allowed to build up.

Also ... I've had issues with a keyboard key sticking. Took a while to figure that issue out, but I found the guilty key.

Turning my wireless keyboard upside down and GENTLY taping it on a hard surface helps remove dirt and (thankfully) solve sticky-key keyboard issues.

Thanks for your interest Mike. When thing are working right; pressing the intro key drops you down to start a new paragraph. I did all of the above and could not get it to work. Late yesterday afternoon; about 15 hours later it was working. I finished up my posts and felt like a new man. Also, the messages I was getting about security certificate errors on WA have disappeared. Was it our support team? Who knows?

They may be doing some back end tweaking concomitant with Carson's announcement on SSL

Could be. I wrote to support about the problem and their answer was that the problem was on my end.
