WordPress can do really weird and obnoxious things with blank lines. It will add them when you don’t want them, and more often, strip them out when you do want them. No matter how many times and ways you tell it — blank line, blank line!! — as soon as you hit that ‘Preview’ button, they’re gone.

What theme you’re using and what plugins you have installed can also affect it. Switching from Visual to Text editor can screw it up. If you have a plugin that gives you more controls in TinyMCE (the visual editor), that may make things easier or harder!

Here’s what worked for me. It should work most of the time. So, try it out, and my fingers are crossed for you.

Just add the HTML code for a blank space to each line you want blank.

 

That will trick WordPress into giving you a non-blank line with a blank space. So it’s blank.

Never has nothingness been so frustrating!

Are you having trouble getting your favicon to show up in WordPress using Atahualpa? Read on for my trials and tribulations! Or just use one of these two solutions:

Solution #1 – Just stick a file called favicon.ico in the root directory of your website, above the wp-content/ folder.

Solution #2 – Put your file called whateveryouwant.ico in wp-content/ata-images/ and then go to Appearance->Atahualpa Theme Options->Add a Favicon and tell it what name you want. (IGNORE what it says in there about where to put the file. It’s lying to you. Check out Atahualpa Theme Options->Image Locations to see why.)

Solution #1.5 and #2.5 – If you’ve done one of the above and it’s still not working, try clearing your cache, or restarting your browser. Be firm with it! Browsers are often quite reluctant to do it, even after you tell them to.
