I just found this forum, WOW, what a great marketplace of ideas.  I am having some trouble with formatting my replies, I can't get my stuff to break into paragraphs.  Is there a trick I should know? 

Oh, there it is.  Or does this only work in the topic part? 

I particularly like the things in the sidebars, the New and Popular discussions being posted in an obvious place.  The Recent posts over on the left by the search button is really nice, too.

Do any of you old hands have helpful hints for a new poster?

I discovered that to break the text into paragraphs, you put the html tag (without any spaces, though) where you want to have a space between paragraphs.

There, I just did it.

You can click "Preview comment" to see how your text will appear before actually posting, if you want.

Once your post is how you like it, click "Post comment".



Hi, mccoy~
I have a long way to go to get in shape. These are things I have tried/am trying:

I had really gone a long time without any exercise, so I know I needed to start slow. So I got a Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVD so I can exercise in-home in front of the TV. I got the WATP Express Basic which included a 1, 2 & 3 mile walk. She's got a lot of different titles; not sure how varied they are. The DVD I bought was just right for an out-of-shape klutz like me!

Recently, I also got the Wii Fit "game", so I have been doing this instead of the Walk Away the Pounds video. I like it. My kids have the other sports games that can be played on the Wii, which is great exercise, but I haven't tried those yet.


I don't see a "input format" tab. Where may we find this?

I think this forum used to do paragraphs automatically, but lately it doesn't unless I do the thing.

See, like just now, when I typed in the comments box, I had spaces for paragraphs, but when I clicked Preview comment to see my post, there were no spaces.


Oh, I guess the thing I thought made paragraphs doesn't. HELP!!!

thanks IT WORKS!

i just found it too.but i dont see any good ideas yet.any tips on get in shape well watching 4 kids at home?

I have older tapes/DVDs from They also include a sample diet to follow which has been very helpful. I lost a lot of weight through this program after having my kids. It's been a while since I've used the program, but I'm thinking I cld probably benefit from it again. The key is getting yourself mentally motivated to do it. Good luck!

mccoy, watching 4 kids at home should be keeping you fit. Take them to the park and play with them there.

You can't make paragraphs...It's hard for some ppl they use all kinds of creative ways. I just gave up and let it all run together. BUT if your OCD it's gonna drive you crazy. Welcome to the boards!!

When I go into the input format tab and click on markdown I don't have any trouble with the paragraphs running together. Try that and see what happens. Marti

Hey pokey I am doing some research on it and asking about it---I will let you know as soon as I know more about this. Thanks Marti
