I’m having a few problems with blog posts.
First, I can’t seem to add any line breaks or paragraphs to my posts. I’ve tried single and double spacing, < br > links and using both visual and text editors but it posts as all one line.
Second, the permalink on the blog title links back to the homepage and doesn’t open the blog post as shown in the demo. Is this because I only currently have one post or do I need to make a change somewhere?
Lastly, is there any way to get the blog page to display like the Inline Gallery on the demo? I’d like each post to have the date and category in a separate box to the right like it has on that gallery.

I don’t know what you mean by the first issue. You can use line breaks in the html or text tab but in the visual editor you would need to use shortcodes, ie:
It could be just the page you are viewing but I can’t say for sure without look at exactly what you are seeing. If you can link to the page we can get a better idea of the link and its expected behavior.
For the blog layout, you can change it in the theme options under General Settings>Blog Overview Image layout to either use the slideshow above the entry or to pop out to the side when hovering over. The date and meta information is only available on the single entry however.

Sorry I forgot to include the URL. It’s http://www.nlstudio.co.uk/
Basically if you go to the Blog page you’ll see that the text is all one paragraph. When I wrote it I used line breaks (shift + enter) and double spacing (enter) to break the text up to make it easier to read (like I’ve done in this reply).
However, this hasn’t worked on the blog post. None of the breaks/paragraphs work, either HTML or shortcodes.
If I add a long post in the future it will be difficult to read.
Regarding the permalink question – on your demo page blog you see multiple posts. When you click the title of one of the posts it opens it in it’s own separate page with a comments section.
On my page if you click the title it just links back to the home page. There doesn’t seem to be anywhere to add comments etc.

For you first issue, wordpress does some stripping of tags and tries to clean up user errors with basic formatting. You should be able to use a single Enter after a paragraph to give you a full clear line. Shift+Enter does not work however.
I don’t know why your blog title isn’t linking to the individual post. If you can create a temporary admin account I’ll log in and take a look.
You can send the information to my email at DevinVinson (at) gmail.com. Make sure to include a link to this topic so that my spam filter doesn’t grab it :)

I’ve tried adding paragraphs with a single Enter but it still doesn’t work.
If you look on the blog you’ll see what I mean. There is no paragraph spacing at all.
I noticed it’s the same on the demo. Is it something that’s not coded in the theme?
For the other issue I have emailed you with a temp admin account.
Hopefully you can see where I might have gone wrong with the blog page.

Just sent you a reply. I flushed the permalinks by changing them back to default then back to postname. WordPress sometimes messes up the htaccess file and resetting permalinks often fixes it.
For the blog overview, you just need to use the excerpt area to preserve the formatting.
