    I did not know this thread existed. I shall be putting all my Top Tips in here from now on. Let's start with the paragraph one to kick us off. ๐Ÿ™‚

    For those people on the mobile version who are still losing paragraphs when they publish their posts you can manually force in the paragraph formatting by using the <p> and </p> codes at the start and end of the desired paragraphs. It is a bit of a faff but it does make long posts readable again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here's an example:

    An Example:

    <p> Bla Bla Bla First paragraph Bla Bla Bla </p>

    <p> Bla Bla Bla Second paragraph Bla Bla Bla </p>

    Some other useful codes are <strong> </strong> for bold, <em> </em> for italics, and <u> </u> for underline.

    Hope this is useful ๐Ÿ™‚

    There is another workaround for adding paragraphs that some may find simpler. If you're on your mobile you can flip to the desktop version in your browser settings and that should allow you to add paragraphs in the normal way rather than adding the <p> </p> codes. ๐Ÿ‘

    I've been meaning to pop this one here for awhile but, ironically, it's been 'content blocking' me.

    My Top Tip today is if you're writing a review and then you submit it only to hit the 'content blocked' screen then you can swop your regular brackets out for { } ones and it goes through fine. Obviously this creates a bit more work for the editors so use it wisely, but if you're in a pinch then it's there if you need it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚

    (credit to Smultron for working out it was the brackets in the first place. I was trying to quote the earlier post, but it 'content blocked' me)

    I've been using another bit of code recently to occasionally give a bigger gap between paragraphs. It's not going to be mega-useful to many people, but I thought I'd share it anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘

    &nbsp;

    ย 

    (I also wanted to check if I could get the half symbol to work ยฝ)

    Edit: It worked. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That works from the html code, so you'd need to type &#189; ๐Ÿ‘

    1ยฝ hours is 1&#189; hours

    I probably should have worked this one out sooner, but better late then never. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you follow a link to a discontinued product on your phone and the product images don't show up then if you tilt your phone into landscape (with auto-rotate on) then they show up. ๐Ÿ‘

    Here's the discontinued list again if anyone wants to see if this tip works for them:

    The paragraph issue is starting to irritate again. It used to be that if I just selected desktop site, then paragraphs worked. Now, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, no idea why. Grrrrrr.ย 

    On a positive note, this is immensely helpful info on this thread, always learning some new tricks!ย 

    Paragraphs on this didn't work again, but edited to leave a huge gap between them and, taadaaa, it worked!ย

    I thought I'd already put a tip down about manually adding the quote code, but it appears I haven't. ๐Ÿ™‚ For those people who don't have a working 'quote this post' button you can add the blockquote tags around the quoted text to give a similar effect. You'll also need to add the '[member] writes:' text, as well as all the paragraph tags, so it may be more trouble than it's worth. But, anyway, here you go: ๐Ÿ™‚

    ย

    I've started saving links to threads which I want to keep access to, for directing someone to when I give advice, by copying the link into a text edit doc. I used to go back and search my posts to find them, Why didn't I do this from the start. ? !
