If you’ve used WordPress even just a little bit, you’ve probably come up against the fact that it’s really hard to add extra space into the editor. You can only hit “return” a couple of times before it starts eating those extra line spaces you’re trying to create. So if you want to create extra empty space in your page or post – anything beyond a paragraph break or two, you’ve probably pulled your hair out. There’s several workarounds you can use if you happen to know HTML but that horrifies many non-techie WordPress users. Well the best way I have now found is an awesomely simple and to-the-point plugin called Spacer.
Spacer places an icon on your toolbar. You click it once and it inserts a shortcode which by default gives you 20 pixels of empty space but it’s really easy to change that number to fit your needs (click the image below to check it out). No more futzing with HTML or tearing your hair out!!
