formatting?

I don't really know if this is a bug or not, but I'm only able to post one paragraph entries, none of my carriage returns are doing what (I think) they should. It used to be that if I broke my entry into separate paragraphs, it all looked the same when I posted it. That isn't the case anymore. Do I need to be using HTML to do it now? It used to work and now it doesn't, and I can't figure out what the difference is. help!

I think this was mentioned in the community a few days ago:

If you post with the HTML preview active, then it strips the returns from the post.

Actually, xJournal has been doing weird things with carriage returns and autoformats too. Has LJ changed something on their end?

I shouldn't think so.

I'm still using iJournal, as the Xjournal checkfriends bugs irritate me a lot and I've not seen any issues with posts not formatting correctly.

I don't use the HTML preview view.

I just looked at the source of one of verso's broken posts, and the returns haven't been translated to <
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<br [...] /&gt;s>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I just looked at the source of one of <lj user=verso>'s broken posts, and the returns haven't been translated to &lt;<br /&gt;s by LJ. This suggests that the 'preformatted' option is on. Possibly a bug with iJournal, or it could be that the option is selected and <lj user=verso> just doesn't realise/notice. (Not to insult <lj user=verso> - I don't know his/her level of competence, so I'm just considering everything.)

I ended up making two posts here instead of to my own journal. Preformatted seemed to do the trick! No, I didn't realize it was checked, and I'm glad someone else picked up on it! Thanks.
