Line breaks within Rich Text (style)

I imported 400 blogs from wordpress to webflow and the style of the line breaks are not looking the same.


As you can see, there is not much seperation with on webflow. I want to know if there is anyway to style these linebreaks to more accurately look like the ones in wordpress. Also, I am manually adding these in every blog post because when I import the blogs the line breaks dont register at all. So if you have a solution to that as well that would be great.

Here is an example of that when I dont add these line breaks manually:


Anyone who can answer this would help me soooo much. This is a major thing I gotta do and then I will be finished with this project.

Here is my site Read-Only: Webflow - Respite For The Weary

@camputty - Can you share a link to the page published on the domain? I want to see the HTML code in my browser devtools rendered. Then I will take a look.

Also a link to the same page on Wordpress.

Here is a blog:

Here is the wordpress blog in respect to the one above:

I really appreciate your help.

The Wordpress site content has multiple paragraphs <p> inside a <div> with various <em> and <strong> tags.

The Webflow CMS content inside of the <div class="rt w-richtext"> has only one paragraph <p> with all of the post a child of the paragraph. Inside of that one paragraph various <em> and <strong> tags format the content. Those are inline elements. So the problem is your many paragraphs of content were converted to one on import or were exported that way.

As it stands (imported content) you could have to fix this manually since the missing element tags can’t be formatted in CSS since they are missing.

What I would do first is examine the CSV export from Wordpress to see if that is what changed the content.

I know that when importing a CSV into Webflow when mapping a field that has basic HTML to a Rich Text Field that this works in tests I have done. So checking the CSV will tell you which end morphed the content structure. If it is on the Wordpress side an alternative export plugin might give you better results (not mangle the content).

If you determine that it is Webflow that mangles the content then I would say that is a bug. I would have to see the raw CSV data for that post to render an opinion. If you need more help you could engage me for a very small time block.

This is the content from the CSV file from the blog above:
I was talking with a friend who had questions about what a daily walk with the Lord looks like. I know each faith walk varies person to person, and even season to season, but in a broad way, here are three words to live by: seek, pray, trust.

Seek. Seek God in His word, every day. Daily is key. Don’t we live life every day? Then, let’s seek Him every day! His word is truly the lamp to our feet, and the light to our path (Psalm 119:105). God’s word teaches us truths about who He is, and His great love for us. His word also gives us guidance for the smallest and biggest decisions we make, or the vast range of emotions we feel. He promises if we seek Him, we will find Him, if we seek Him with all our heart (Jeremiah 29:13).

Pray. Where seeking is God talking to us, praying is us talking to God. God tells us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). When we talk to God all the time in our heart, it leaves little room for other negative or self-defeating thoughts. In prayer, we can turn anxiety to peace. We can release anger or bitterness. We can actually help others by simply talking to God! The more we pray, the stronger our relationship with the Lord becomes.

Trust. Trusting God is crucial. If we seek Him daily, and pray to Him all the time, but we don’t trust Him, and then choose to go our own way because we think it’s better, then our faith walk is really “all for naught.” Why seek and pray when we don’t really trust? However, if we fully believe God hears our prayers, then our souls can rest, knowing He is at work, doing things we could never do in and of our own power. And if we trust Him in His word, we will confidently follow Him down His paths, believing His way is the best route, even if it’s not fully revealed. A simple example: when driving into an unknown destination, we type the address into Google Maps or Waze. Isn’t the next logical step to follow its directions? Trusting God is obeying God. It is faith-in-Him winning over the feelings-in-you. I’ve lived long enough to know that feelings are NOT trustworthy. So friend, every day, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Seek. Pray. Trust. A habitual, yet divinely exhilarating way to live.




My guess is that It is the way it exports from wordpress. I have used alternatives but nothing seems to work. Do you have any recommendations for exporting tool?

Just realized the copy and pasted content formatted in this thread haha:
Here is a screenshot:

That indicates that your CSV export from Wordpress is mangling the content.

Thanks for your help Jeff! Ill begin the journey of finding the right software

I have used this plugin before with success on other (non Webflow) projects. Should work for you.

Export any WordPress data to XML/CSV – WordPress plugin |

Hey, while I got you, I have a quick question for the same blog. For these blog post, The images are brought in by linking from her original website;

When I transfer the domain are the images going to remain for these blog post or will a domain change mess up where these images are coming from and therefor mess up the thumbnail images?
Thanks Jeff

If you look at a page on your Webflow staging site where are the images served from? If you inspect the source you will see.
