I have a new install (12 hours old) with minimal (and only suggested) plugins.
I prefer to work in the text editor. I’m using Sections
2 things: when I try to add blank lines in the content pane of a section with repeated <p: </p> it will allow me to do that, apply and then update the page (and it displays my changes publicly), but when I return to the Content pane of the section, it defaults to the visual tab, and switching to the text tab shows that the blank lines have been deleted, and the public page now shows the newly-deleted version.
So then, when I set my user to disable the visual editor when writing, when I go back to the Content pane of that section, the text box is weirdly narrowed (the text box is about 1/3 of the width of the pane itself, rather than full width) and the non-breaking spaces have been replaced with normal spaces (at least that’s what it looks like).
Is that a bug, or do I have something set incorrectly?
And is there an optimal way of adding blank lines?
