yeah - it's always been like that. BBCode works in rich text. now BBCode is default it fucks up all articles cos it removes the space between the abstract and the article.

could it be set so articles in HTML no line breaks format can use BBCode as well? to make updating easier?

bbcode in rich text format added line breaks?

It might be that we're using the bbcode line break converter instead of the html one. Might we worth checking out.

No - BBCode in HTML no line breaks did. bbcode works fine in rich text.
