Hello! I'm having trouble with what's hopefully a simple issue.
I want to post writing under each comic I post, in the Author Notes area.
I'd like to indent each paragraph with 5 spaces, but when I paste the text in, all my extra spaces disappear after I save.
I've tried using and   to fill in for 4 spaces, but I already have thousands of lines of text and it's kind of a pain if I have to manually do that for every single line. ono; I've also tried <pre> but it didn't quite work either. How come some blogs/HTML/BBCode keep multiple spaces in your writing and others don't?
so do you want 5 spaces to only appear on the first sentence of each paragraph, or do you want the whole block of text to be moved by the equivalent of 5 spaces?
adding this to your CSS may do what you want. It will show up all spaces but also allow lines to break when they need to. it will also affect user comments, if you want it to only apply to author comments let me know.
another thing worth doing if you do that is finding
(should show up once for author notes and once for comments) and getting rid of all the spaces between that and [v:l.comment] (since it will make them show up otherwise)
You are so smart and nice and kind and also helpful!
I just wanted my 5 spaces at the start of every paragraph to show up. I don't think I needed the whole block to show up.
I randomly pasted that in the layout sorta near the top of the page coding and it works perfect just like I want. <3
