white space between text not responding to custom CSS


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi-

 

I have very limited experience with development, been doing design for awhile. The site (testing.zevsiegl.com) is getting to the state I want, but I have spent hours trying to fix the problem without success.

 

It's as simple as wanting to strip some of the white space from in between the text elements.

 

Here's what I've tried:

 

In Custom Code area:

 

<code>

 

.content .content-pad {
padding: 0px;
}
h1, h2 {
  font-family: "daniel", cursive;
  font-color: #cc571b;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  }
blockquote {
padding: 0px;
margin: 10px;
border: 0;
}
</code>
 
And in child theme area: 
 
<code>
h1 {
  font-family: "daniel", cursive;
  font-color: #cc571b;
  margin: 0;
  padding:0;
  }
 
h2 {
    font-family: "daniel", cursive;
    background-color: transparent;
    font-color: #2c7b94;
    text-decoration: none;
    word-spacing: normal;
    text-align: left;
    letter-spacing: 1px, inherit;
    line-height: 1.4em;
    font-size: 1.3em;
    margin-top: 1em;
    margin-bottom: 0;
   padding: 0;
}
 
p {
    font-family: 'Trebuchet MS';
    background-color: transparent;
    font-color: #373737;
    text-decoration: none;
    word-spacing: normal;
    text-align: left;
    letter-spacing: 0;
    line-height: 1.6em;
    font-size: 1.3em;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    padding: 0;
}
 
I'd love to know where I am going wrong and how to make it right.

Hi,

 

The main white area on your site is coming from the below your content, this gap is created by your table. You have height 200px, remove this or lower the value and this will resolve the issue.

Rob, as soon as I just asked a similar question I found this answer.  I think that this is the problem that I have, but where do I find the option to reduce the space below the table?

My question was regarding white space in general, but in particular below the slider.

Your whitespace which I believe is the white content below your boxes, is actually caused by your Facebook like widget, in your sidebar. With that being as long as it is, it is causing your sidebar to be longer than your actual content area and is therefore, pushing your content area down to match the length, creating white space.

We can not provide support to third party widgets, but if you remove this widget your whitespace will be reduced vastly.

Thanks Danny, I'll give that a go!

 

Had more troubling problem this morning, the whole site went down and when my ISP restored it, all of the pagelines formatting had disappeared.  I do have a manual back-up of the wordpress folder but is there a specific place I should be looking for just the pagelines formatting (site-wide formatting etc)?

Everytime my host has restored something for me, it's never complete.

 

My suggestion is to FTP into the site and install DMS from an original source.

 

Go to http://www.pagelines.com or your account and download the latest released version.  Unzip the file to your desktop.

 

Via FTP, navigate to wp-content/themes/.   Delete the DMS folder. Then, upload the dms folder on your desktop (just added) and it will replace the original.  This will restore all the broken bits, and won't affect the settings.
