Line breaks do not transfer to HTML code. If you want a line break, you need to use
Thanks for the reply, I think maybe I wasn’t clear or used the wrong terminology.
When I’m editing the source code and make changes such as breaking the source into multiple lines when I go to the WYSIWYG editor and then back to source the source is no longer on multiple lines.
In my example no matter what I do the source alway reverts to being on the same line.
How do I change the source so that it retains any formatting changes I make?
Just making a new line in a WYSIWYG editor does not automatically add a
tag to the HTML. If you do not have a
tag in the HTML, you will not get a new line. Certain HTML tags automatically cause the browser to break to a new line; <p> tags and <li> tags are some others besides
that do so. Having a line break in text does not.
I’m not making the new line in the WYSIWYG editor, I’m making it in the source. My question concerns only editing and viewing code in the source. I put in the part about the WYSWIG editor just the make the point that the source changes/reverts when I leave the source, go to the WYSIWYG editor and then go back to the source. I’m not making any changes in the WYSIWYG editor.
I believe the RTE’s both have default options that "cleanup" the source, causing this "reformatting", but where or how to set those, I can’t recall at the moment.
For TinyMCE, the "cleanup" option is at Resources/Manage Resources/Plugins/TinyMCE/Configuration. I disabled cleanup but I am still getting the same results.
No, that didn’t work either.
