I contribute to several web site based forums and several weeks ago
paragraphs suddenly began to be posted as double spaced paragraphs. An
extra line space, just between the paragraphs.
Prior to sending a post the spacing is single spaced, once posted they
show as double spaced. Editing and removing the extra lines then
clicking send, they appear as I would like..
Any ideas please what has happened to change this?
The Natural Philosopher laid this down on his screen :
No, not in my newsreader, just the online web forums. Everytime I type
a line after a paragraph, it appears to be fine on my screen, until
posted. What I have typed and posted then becomes double line spaced
between the paragraphs.
I cn go back ad re-edit, remove the extra line, repost and all is as I
originally intended. If it were just one forum, I would blame the forum
own software, but it affect all the forums I use, so it must be some
oddity here on my computer. I'm using W10 plus Firefox for the forum's.
Your browser will be displaying what the forum(s) tell it to, can't see
it's anything other than a problem at the far end, do they all use the
same software? e.g vBulletin or PHPbb or whatever?
Have you asked other forum users how they see your posts, or their own
posts, have you asked the admin?
Powered by vBulletin® Version 3.8.6 is being used by two of the forums
I see the problem in.
To answer Brian Gaff - Had it been something to do with a change of
line length, then I would expect an extra line space to be added within
the paragraphs. I will try talking to site admin...
Line lengths on the site changed, and spaces inserted instead of carriage
I see this when trying to cut and paste some content from web sites into
word. I find at least one extra space pushes the thing to another line then
a carriage return makes another new line creating the double space effect.

Assume they started treating <CR> as a paragraph separator.
On some I find that I have to use <SHIFT+CR> to signify a line break
instead of a new paragraph.
When using a tablet I just ignore it or avoid using line breaks.
