Blogging as you know if a very important part of SEO.  The more you blog, the more content your website has, and the more the Search Engines like your website.

If you’ve ever been frustrated when blogging and having trouble inserting line breaks read the post below by Brandon Hopkins.  Easy fix, yet it’s been a problem for many bloggers for a LONG TIME!

How to Add Line Breaks in WordPress Posts


WordPress has a weird “feature” of stripping extra line breaks out of posts. Often times you will want more than just a single space between paragraphs or pictures. If you try to use standard html code like the following, it won’t work.

<br /> – doesn’t work

<p>&nbsp;</p> – doesn’t work

The only method that I have found of adding extra line breaks in your WordPress posts is to use the following code.

<p align=”left”>&nbsp;</p>

Copy and paste that as many times as you want.






Another one that seems to work just as good is: <p style=”text-align: left; font-size:1px”>.</p>
