Can't create paragraphs?
Everything I've typed gets crammed into a single paragraph, but I can see this doesn't happen to everyone's posts. Other folks can post in multiple paragraphs. Is there a setting somewhere I need to adjust? And if this sentence isn't all by itself, the way I typed it, then you can see what I mean.

Hitting the "enter" key once will move you down to a new line.

Hitting it twice will leave a space between the paragraphs.

That's right!

That 'Enter' key.----Don't feel bad----I had to ask a friend when I started typing on a computer.--

I just made a post and I had paragraphs in the post until I hit the submit reply button. When the post showed up on the board there were no paragraphs at all, it was all jamed together like BRIANisMEisWE said. I will now make another paragraph to see what happens.

OK, here is another paragraph, lets see if it jams together when it gets to the board.

OK OK, it worked that time, did some one do something?

Testing. Testing. Testing. There should be four lines separated by three blank lines. Oh, and I was using the Enter key. I've been doing this a long, long time. Now I should have five lines separated by four blank lines.

Solution: I use NoScript with FireFox, and it was blocking the Java script used by this page. I just enabled the scripts on this page via NoScript, and....

I have paragraphs.

Thank you for being concerned about paragraphs. I assume a comma here and there is important to you too.

I wish all new members (and some old) were as concerned as you.
