In every other CMS I've used there's an option to compose multi-paragraph text in the back end which is then parsed out into P tags in templates. Neither the native text field nor the popular Redactor field seems to do that out of the box, and I can't seem to find documentation that helps.

I'm hoping I'm missing something simple!

  • The plain text field won't do that but Redactor will do that by default. What are you experiencing with Redactor?

I had left P tags around the content in the template, which prevented Redactor from parsing the text the way I wanted.

This wasn't it either — the field needed to be cleared out and saved and then the content re-input and re-saved after changing the field settings.
