Line spacing

  • Jerry


    Can I use the rich editor to change the line spacing? If not, how can I do change the line spacing on a page? Can I control different line spacings on the same page?



    Hi Jerry,

    If you mean the line spacing between the paragraphs, that’s a great question and exactly what I have been looking for an answer to. I’m sure there must a CSS answer, but I don’t know what it is yet.

    I have found a temporary solution and that is using the code ” ” – without the speech marks.

    Working in the html editor window, I have found if I just “tab” down to leave a space between one paragrapth and the next it leaves a space similar to the gap between the paragraphs/sentences here on this page.

    By putting that coding inbetween the two lines of text, it increases the spacing by about 50% – by leaving a blank line AND pasting the code below this, it doubles the spacing.

    It’s definitely not the best practice, but it will do the job until someone can offer up a CSS solution. I didn’t find the “paragraph” and “break” flexible enough to give the spacings I wanted to make the page look good enough.



    Thanks for the reply Alan. I’m a newbie with WordPress and Graphene. Could you provide an example of what you mean? One of my challenges is that there is too much space between lines of text when I use header 1, then header 4, then header 1 again. It doesn’t look right to me on the page and I would like the lines to be closer together. Much appreciate you help.




    Hi Jerry,

    I’m still a newbie to Graphene and a relative newbie to WordPress too. To be honest, I’m not sure about how to control the spacings when using the header codes, as I don’t tend to use them much. Occasionally as a sub-header, but that is about it.

    My problem was with the lines between the paragraphs being too close, not too far.

    You can see examples of bad spacings (in my opinion) at – where the top half of the page has just a tabbed space and the bottom half was achieved by using the break code. But I couldn’t get anything inbetween.

    Now on the Home/Welcome page, using the other coding, I have managed to get more flexibility on the spacings and a more aesthetic look.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help
