There is a simple little trick to make some lines closer together while leaving the default ones with the same gap.
What you need to do,
is to press the Shift key and
hold it down while you press
the Return (or Enter) key.
See the (subtle) difference in the gap between lines in the above statement as opposed to the rest of this post?
The degree of difference between these two methods will vary depending on your WordPress theme.
For those who’d like to know more…
The reason it works this way, is all to do with HTML of course.
The average content that you type into a post or page becomes an HTML paragraph. The theme styling of your website has a definition of the gap before and after each paragraph, and the size of this gap varies between themes and websites.
Whenever you press the Return (or Enter) key, the Visual Editor makes it a new paragraph, which puts a gap between the previous paragraph and the one you just created, according to your theme’s styling.
When you hold down the Shift key as you press the Return (or Enter) key, the Visual Editor inserts a Line Break (carriage return and line feed in the olden days terms) which just starts you on a new line, the same as would happen when you got to the end of a line and kept typing, and the line would ‘wrap’.
This way, you get to control when to start on a new line, but without the gap between paragraphs.
You don’t always want this, as paragraphs make it easier to read the content, and the gaps add a little to the flow or meaning of the content, so best to use it only when it is appropriate.
Now, as always, the effect of this will vary depending on your WordPress theme’s styling definition.
If you try this on your website, and it makes no (or very little) difference, then either comment on this post, or use my Contact page, leaving details of your website and where on your website it isn’t working, and I’ll have a look and tell you why?
