Learn to Insert A Line Break in WordPress Posts

Sometimes WordPress editor acts weird. ¬†Although it’s a good text editor but not flexible as MS Word.

What do you think?

I am using it for a long time but still I face issues with it like inserting lists, line spaces, line breaks, tab etc. Sometimes they don’t work as expected. One such problem that I face too often is the missing line break between my headings and paragraphs.

Every time I enter space between the two lines, WordPress strips out the code and resets it with no line break. When I check the same thing in the WordPress editor, it shows me the space between the lines but when I preview the same post in the browser, there’s no space between them.
