    Anyone else experience this crap with WordPress, where your formatting looks all fucked up after publishing a blog post? What I mean, are things that shouldn't be happening, such as a ridiculously absurd amount of spacing between words and letters, font overlapping, and header text not being displayed correctly. If anyone has a resolution for this, please pass the info along.


    Thanks,

    It could be your theme's styling for posts. However if not, I'd recommend viewing the source of the post, and seeing what's going on.

    I'm a front end web developer, if you'd like I can take a look at it.

    It's a theme issue not a WordPress issue as long as the formatting looks ok in the visual editor before publishing it. Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

    - Switch to a different theme and view your posts again.
    - If they are properly formatted, re-download and re-upload your previous theme.
    - If the problem persists, you may need to switch permanently to a different theme or examine the source code of your posts to make sure you didn't include any invalid html tags.

    I dont think its a theme issue I've experienced it with several themes so I think its a plugin clashing with the latest version of wordpress. (deactivate all your plugins and take it from there)

    Hasnt bothered me so much to investigate further(the sites it happens on dont need regular updates)

    I have started using this mega plugin on my regularly updated sites anyway

    I think this is what's causing it. Not entirely sure which plugin it could be, as I've tried multiple themes, to no avail.
    This particular site has a rather hefty amount of plugins, and I don't have the time to troubleshoot, tonight. I'll play around with it on Sunday.

    Thanks @all!!!
