      The forum's own text editor hates IOS. Anything you type on iPhones, iPods, and iPads will come out as a big blob of text because it doesn't recognize their line break.

        The problem is more than that. I'm posting the same way I always do, from my home computer set up. Nothing has changed, except that all of the sudden my paragraph breaks are not registering.

          You're right! I'm typing on my PC now and line breaks are still missing!

              me also .... ..., when the forum was down recently , WM (admin) commented that it will be shut down again soon as more work was needed to be done ..., perhaps this problem is part of reason ?

                WM talk about a possible update of the forum platform, I don't think it have something to so with the present problem. Now it's all the editing part of posting that is "broken". I have see the problem appear some time after the shut down this weekend and becoming worse and worse. Now the "formatting" don't seem to download anymore with the page... making impossible any formatting.

                    Testing first line testing second line I think I know what to type to get spaces if it doesnt work :-/ With iOS devices I would simply copy what i typed first, post, then edit post, and paste over it with the spaces included and it would work.

                      I am going to replace the < and > signs with ( and ) to show you what to do for now if you care.

                      So after you type a line of text, press enter, then type (br)(p), press enter again and write your new line.

                      So basically it would look like this
                      (br)(p)
                      And this would be my new paragraph... I only hope this works, if not... ugh.

                          Same problem here.I typed a long post in response to Lantern in a thread about drug smugglers and had to delete it. It simply made me dizzy just to re-read it after all the paragraph breaks were cancelled by the server. I could imagine how it would be to read it for the users. Better to just delete the post.

                            In addition to the work-around offered by OomBen, I wonder if one could increase readibility simply by including a very long string of dots instead of paragraph breaks.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .You would only have to do it once, then you could copy it and paste it every time where you would ordinarily insert a paragraph break... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .It will look a little funny, obviously, but it might be better than "Wall 'O Text.".. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .So now I'm just typing more stuff at random to see how this comes out.

No wonder I can't see at all any more. .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .This now concludes my post.
