Forum not respecting carriage returns

When I make posts to this forum, my paragraphs are all run together and are not separated. Second paragraph that should be separate. I wrote this post as three paragraphs, but when it appears, the paragraphs are run together as a single paragraph. Is this just a bug, or is there some setting I need to make?

I believe it is just you.

Try holding the Shift key when pressing the Enter/Return key... see if that makes a difference.

Also... what browser are you using?

That must be very frustrating.

There are some very computer-savvy folks around here, and probably someone can help you figure it out.

It will help them if you inform them what kind of device you are using, and what settings you are using.

Good luck with it, mate.

Re: Forum not respecting carriage returns

I think it was a Javascript issue. Normally I have Javascript disabled as a security measure.

It looks like I just needed to whitelist the site to get it working.

Thanks.

Mark, typewriters can get you on the web? Wow, who knew, all these years I've been dropping big bucks on computers and now smart phones.

Your carriage returns!!! Yikes I can't even get my dog to return

For the OP, yes to what Ann posted. Let us know what operating system you are using and what browser (and software version of it).
