Authoring & Writing Content

Can anyone tell me how to change the line spacing when you use bullet points in a post. My text does not have enough spaces and looks cramped. Does anyone know how to alter t

Thanks for this - that is great to know!

Thanks, everyone. I have to use WordPad or Google Docs and copy paste. I was hoping there was a simple answer but it seems we all have the same problem.

Yep

Thanks for this. I often need to edit spacing!

You can also adjust in txt with the wp editor, and have line instead of paragraph.

Since it is more time consuming i usually write in my notepad and copypast later

It is both easy and not easy.
It requires editing of the css element that controls the bullet elements.
If you use a premium theme, the theme provider should be able to give you a piece of css to fix the issue.
If you use a free theme, you need to create a child theme and edit the css there.

I write in a Word doc and paste into the WP post field. Cheers!

Great question. I usually just press enter to break things up. Other wise I have added a plug in that controls tables and I can break things up this way as well. Sorry I can't help more.

Most of the time i wRite my text in Notepad and paste into the Wordpress editor...

I have worked through the training and completed each task in each lesson as I went.

Sometimes I felt it would have been better to read through the training in the 1

i think it depends on your learning style. i watch the videos first and then read through the training after. sometimes i find reading more helpful cause i might have missed a point.

Thanks, you are right we all have different learning styles.

I like to do the video, start, knowing I can go back to the text...a preview, so to speak!

I guess we all approach it in our own way, don't we?

Yes, Magie!
Here's the info...use it as you see fit!

That's a good question. I think people learn differently and are better off using the method that works best for them.

Yes, that is true but I have the same problem as deanlilly1

I have the exact same feeling in that reading the lesson and doing the task, yet later on I want to go back and change it because of something else I learned. I guess we can always go back and re-do. It's what I'm doing.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean. It is a case of 'if I knew in the beginning what I know now I would have done things differently'.

Which way works better for you - do it that way. But remember, we all will make mistakes. If you do and need help fixing it we all are here to help you. But which ever way is more comfortable for you to learn, do it that way. This is not a rat race to get a site up.

Thanks

Everyone is right. The bottom line is everyone learns best differently. If it works best for you to go through and read everything first then go back and do the lessons again while performing the work, then great! Do it that way. Just make sure you don't miss anything when you go back the second time.

Based on my experiences, it is better to do the task per the training request, so you will have a better experiences and know what issues/problem you will encounter and solve it. If there is any doubt, you can also raise after the individual training. I believe Kyle prefer the training method here to be action style. Wish you gain as much knowledge as you progress the training lesson, one by one. Cheer to you, my friend at WA.

Yes, you are right. Kyle does recommend doing the training that way. I am just thinking that if you read the training first then you know what is coming next and this may mean you do things differently. I don't mean jump ahead and do the lessons out of order. More like when you do an exam you have a quick look through the questions first, before you get started.

It is fine as long as the method is more effective to you. Sometimes when I read book I too like to go to last page and read backwards instead. Good to free our mind sometimes. Wish you well for all the learning.

I think it totally depends on your style of learning. For me, I did the same thing you did. As a task was being explained to me, I actually went in and did it at the same time. I am a hands-on learner, so doing it as I went along was better for me.

I always took good notes, so if I ever needed to go back to redo something, I would make a note of it and go back.

I don't think there's a right or wrong answer with the method of doing this - especially for us who are very new to this. I am certainly way out of my comfort zone with this but I am constantly learning and because this community is so encouraging, I don't hesitate to ask questions.

I am sure you will be just fine. I wish you all the best.

Regards,
Yvette

I am not really a newbie anymore and am at the end of the training. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome.
I am like you and I learn by reading and doing. In that respect, WA has met my learning style perfectly.
I just think sometimes I would have done things differently if I had read the training first so I knew what was coming next. Maybe I would have done things differently; maybe not.

That's what I am doing. I always read and then come back and do the training. Good Luck to you. WA is a blessing. Have a great night

Thanks. I would love to hear how that is working for you. I have pretty much finished all the training and am now going back over it because things have been upgraded since I did it.
