OT - Text wrapping in posts

Hi,
After I posted my new query, I realized that the text seems to be
following some different wrapping mechanisms. Is there some settings that
I need to change? Right now I'm putting new lines to get an effect of
wrapping.
The profile settings does not seem to have mention of this.
Regards,
Kinjal Sonpal

Actually, text wrapping is done automatically by the HTML your post will be embedded eventually. The only way to divide your post into paragraphs, however, can only be accomplished by typing a couple of enters.

I guess you're talking about this post. Text wrapping is turned off inside [code] tags, as you'd expect. If one line is really long inside [code] tags though, that will essentially force the whole screen to be wide enough for that line (creating a scrollbar if necessary). Outside the [code] tags, all the line-wrapped lines will use the same ooverall screen width - so they will also be really long. So the solution is to be careful not to have really long lines inside [code] tags.
Note that you can edit your own posts after you've posted them, to fix this problem. Just look for the little pencil-and-paper icon at the top of your post, left of the quote "" marks icon.
