Hello, I have noticed the news section of my website (called via a category link) does not display paragraphs, line changes or image galleries.
All the texts for each news are mashed together in one big paragraph, and instead of showing a gallery it shows a shortcode like
[gallery columns="4" link="file" ids="705,706,707,708"].
If you click on a news and view it individually then it does show line breaks and galleries
You have this issue because excerpt for blog list can't read shortcodes and because of that we implemented Excerpt field for each blog single, portfolio single, page etc. You just need to go in your back-end Posts -> Each post -> And below text editor or visual composer, you can find Excerpt field, just add here whatever you want to display for that post on blog list.
If you don't have this section, then just go to top right corner -> Screen Options -> And enable excerpt
All the best,

I use the excerpt field, will its content also be displayed when the post is viewer individually?
Also would using the excerpt field fix the problem with paragraphs and line changes not being displayed? For example, the news in the following links has paragraphs and line changes when viewed individually, but the texts are mashed into a single paragraph when viewed in the news section.
Excerpt content will be displayed only on blog list not on single posts. Excerpt is developed to show small amount of text and paragraphs and line changes are not enabled for post excerpts.
So is there a solution to display paragraphs and line changes both in the blog list and in single post? I would like the texts to not be mashed together into a single big paragraph.
Excerpt fields doesn't allow paragraphs and unfortunately there is no option to enable them, so please use smaller amount of text fort excerpt fields. Paragraphs are enabled on single posts, if you have problem with single posts, send us your login details in private reply, and link to the post where you have this issue and we'll take a closer look.
All the best,
Is there any way to enable paragraphs on category view? If not is this something you plan to support in the future? And if not do you have an alternative to suggest (plugins or code)?
Please try to use paragraphs in excerpt field. Ad your text to excerpt field and use<p> html tag as shown on screenshot:
