Convert NL to BR in author bio category page?

We're using our category pages sort of a landing page for co-branding our site. One of them lands on the Author page - so the Author bio is what's being shown, the trouble is I need it broken into 3-4 separate paragraphs but can't insert a standard < br > tag without it being stripped by the WP interface.

That means I get one big block of text - thoughts on how to resolve this? The page in question is:

(apparently I'm too new to post links)

Thanks for any help you guys can provide, I'm learning but am still rather new to Elementor.

Try using paragraph tags your text editor will need to in text view to copy paste the below. Switch back to visual view before saving to check spacing

Thanks for getting back to me but that doesn't work either - ANY HTML tags I put in get stripped on update. Remember this is the "Biographical Info" field on the Edit User page so there isn't any visual/etc. editor - just the single box for it.

It does save it and display correctly (with CRs / NLs) when I go to edit it that just isn't displayed when the page shows the editor bio.

Other ideas or what am I missing?

You try this

&#60;p&#62;hello new words here..........&#60;&#47;p&#62;

<p>hello new words here.......... </p>

Nope, as those codes get rendered in display it just shows <p>Text here</p> on the actual page, it doesn't actually treat that as an HTML tag to create the breaks.

Other ideas???
