Is there a way to insert extra blank line spaces between paragraphs? I find that if i put 2 blank lines it only shows as one.
I would like to do this to split up some paragraphs that have sub headings.

The next question is: can one create sub-headings that have a larger font size than the default? i have just created bold and underlined headings but they don’t stand out enough as sub headings.

Do you want to insert the extra space only on some paragraphs, or all of them?

Yes, you can add headings, although this isn't really documented anywhere just yet as it's rather new. Basically works with the same code as in the wiki.

Add 2 or 3 equals signs (=) around the words in the heading like this:
==Big heading==
===Smaller heading===

That should do the trick!

Thanks Sam, the headers work great.

I would like to put extra spaces, if possible, only on certain paragraphs, not all. Im guessing one can change the CSS if I wanted to change all.

If I'm not mistaken, the way to do it would be to hit Enter, then the space bar, Enter, space, Enter space etc.

Basically it will remove the extra enters if it doesn't come across a character, so by adding the space you trick the system into thinking there's a character there :) A bit of a hack, but should work!

Yup, and it works the same way for forum posts and private messages too. :)

Oh, thank you, thank you. This has been driving me mad. I have just started our third blog over 4 years and all this time, the question of line spacing has made me tear my hair out.

I've tried all sorts of tricks to get the line spacing I want but never thought of SPACE, RETURN!

Life will be a lot easier now. It's the simple things in life.....

Thanks for the help on this.

Another ? (and I have searched for some help on this to no avail).

Is there a way I can "centre" my pictures within a paragraph or at least move them over from the left margin. Also, video windows would look better "centred" I think.

Thanks.
