How to Add a Blank Line in WordPress

I don’t know if it is a problem with my current theme, or what else caused it, but there is no blank line after an unordered list and a following paragraph that makes it look like the following line belongs to the list like so:

  • item 1
  • item 2

Not part of the list.

The quickest and easiest solution (I read about it here) seems to be to hit the code-button twice in a row like so : < code > < /code > (without the spaces). This results in the desired layout:

  • item 1
  • item 2


Not part of the list.

  1. Thank you! This has been driving me nuts.

  2. I noticed that with the latest WordPress 2.7.1, this does not work any more. You need at least one space between the two < code > statements, otherwise, the editor will remove them.
