Post gets mangled when federating with mastodon


I dunno if there’s a primer on markup or something which I couldn’t find easily… but anyway.

I wrote a short poem as a test, and it looks fine on But once it’s over on mastodon it loses all the line breaks, so becomes a kind of mess. Any help? I don’t want to be put off writing very short form posts just because the formatting goes wobbly. Thanks!

Oh, without a markup guide I tried using line break html tags, but it upset the auto post flagging bot, so I couldn’t test it properly. ^^;
