Joomla 2.5 does not include a way to indent the first line of a paragraph, but you can still accomplish this by using css. In a previous article we showed you how to indent an entire paragraph, and in this article we'll show you how to indent only the first line of the paragraph.

Indenting the first line of a paragraph in Joomla 2.5:

  1. Open for edit the article you would like to change
  2. View the HTML code of your article by clicking the toggle editor button
  3. Find the paragraph you would like to edit. You should see either a <p> tag or a <div> tag. Make the following adjustments:

    Paragraphs <p> Divs <div>
    Change:
    <p>

    To:
    <p style='text-indent:20px;'>
    Change:
    <div>

    To:
    <div style='text-indent:20px;'>

    As you can see in the screenshot below, we have successfully indented the first line of a paragraph in a Joomla 2.5 article.
