    Any idea why the spacing is so big on my wordpress?

    It's impossible to add an image to the right side of the text, because it breaks it up into 2 line paragraphs and looks stupid.

    How can I change it to just regular text spacing?

    Code:
    p {
        line-height: 1.5; /* adjust the number to your liking */
    }

    OP, that is your second post today about a WP issue. It might be a good idea to hire a guy for an hour or two to give you some hands on training through team viewer or something along those lines.

    The elimination of the frustration will well overshadow the cost.

    Just a suggestion from seeing those couple of posts.

    JuggernautJukey, that post above was not to be insulting... I woke up a little bothered as the way I communicated that could have come off badly.

    I think that a little hands on is smart and something that I should have done back when I first started building sites as it would have saved me a ton of frustration.

    It's done through CSS. What aspect are you trying to change, the heading spacing or everything?

    Usually for general spacing you would use what flipitup said. With headings sometimes they have margins set in CSS which you will need to alter, i.e.

    Code:
    h1 { margin-top: 1em; margin-bottom:1em; }
    Or whatever you want. Just a tip, on most browsers now you can "Inspect Element". If you hover your cursor over the element you want changed and go to Inspect Element it will tell you it's div ID or class ID, and show you all of the CSS rules applied to it. You can change them on the fly and see the difference until you get it to how you want, then you add those settings to your actual CSS so it's permanent.
