Hi,

Add this, the code may need some adjustment:


body.fixed_width .section-branding .content-pad {
padding: 10px 25px 0;
}

#sb_content .widget-pad {
padding: 0 10px;
}[/CODE]

Sorry but I am stuck with this, I am such a newbie!

I have tried but I dont know how to find this piece of code. It seems simple but...... It's the first time I have tried this. In fact this is the first time I have made a website. That's why pagelines has been invaluable to me.

So please can you give me instructions on where to access this code, then I can make the changes, hopefully.

Cheers

Lesley

Hi Lesley,

OK the code I gave you above, copy and paste that code into :

Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS / LESS area.

Okay Danny

That was super clear and super effective. Thanks.

However I still have large gaps between sections and the page title is a long way from the contents. Any ideas?

Thanks Lesley

I am not sure how to respond to your suggestion at the moment. Thanks but I need time to think about what I am trying to achieve. I am grateful for your help and support. You can close this thread for now and I will return another time on this issue if i need to.

Cheers

      I am slowly getting closer to something I like for the general appearance of my site. What's currently nagging me is trying to remove the top and bottom padding/margin from the image in the header. It seems that I've done what I want with the menu but there was dead space above the image and between the image and menu.
      Trying out padding and margin settings, I got something that came close to what I want but saw odd behavior along the way. Changing either the top or bottom padding to 0 (from blank), removed all padding from the top and sides but left a small band between the image and menu.
      Setting all eight padding and margin settings to 0 removed all except the band between image and menu. (But it seems that entering 0 in only the top or bottom padding option is all that was needed.)
      So, heading into the twilight zone, I changed the bottom margin to -1. That removed the band but allowed the menu to slightly overlap the image. AND, narrowing the browser, or viewing on a phone, caused the band to reappear.
      Perhaps there's also a problem with the menu but I don't see it.
      So that's where it stands at the moment: http://756.a44.myftpupload.com 
      I seems to me that if there is a default padding value, setting it to 0 should be all that's needed to get the two sections to meet perfectly on any device/browser width.

      Hello There, 
      I am working with Platform 5 and have run into an unnerving problem. I am trying to position my clients picture along the bottom of the container, so that it sits right on the bottom. After a good hour of googling and messing with the CSS I figured I would ask the question here. Below is my screenshot displaying my problem. I will need to do this frequently in the future. 
      My Problem Image
      Unlike in DMS, when I add a margin to an embed or image box it simply makes the container larger while keeping the padding, I cannot have any padding or any space whatsoever on the bottom of my clients image.  Is there a way to remove all padding from the container so I can have this work across screen sizes? If not is there anyway to position an element directly at the bottom of another element in Platform 5? This seems like a basic feature and was easily attainable within DMS. 
      I cannot create an image combining all these elements as it will not scale well on mobile and will make my clients logo unreadable and her face incredibly small. 
       
      Thank you for any help,
      Perry

      Hello,
      I am a bit confused about the usage of percentages for section padding/margin settings in the PL5 UI. Percentages don't scale well for mobile devices (especially in height), so those settings are pretty much useless. Case in point, the defaults are expressed in rem units, not percentages:
      .pl-sn-pad { padding: 1rem; ... } Why force the user to use percentages in the PL5 section UI when it would have been as easy to let the user specify the unit?

      Good day
      How do I indent textbox content so that it's not flush against the side of the screen on mobile devices?
      When I view Kempston Truck Hire East London on my phone, the text is aligned against the side of the screen and doesn't look right.
      Many thanks

      I am trying to remove the bottom padding from a media box.  When I inspect and change the value it works but I can not for the right css section names to change it in either the page css or custom code area.  I have even tried custom style for the page, but no luck.  Here is the site http://wordpress.howard-boats.com/  on the home page I am trying to get the wide sailboat image to touch the foot.  bottom-padding:0px  but I cant get it to work.  Thank you for your help I'm sure I am doing something stupid.
