I have had no luck locating a simple answer for this issue on any forum. 

 

Please help assist. 

 

The future of my species may rest solely upon your shoulders...

Hi there,

 

Looking at the source code it seems like the padding is coming from the content-area of the branding section. There's 25px padding set, see the following screenshot, I've highlighted the class for you - http://screencast.com/t/uo3bI4Spq


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi there, yes you can copy the css from where the arrow is directing and change the value to 0px.

 

When looking for css for padding/margins inside the framework, the best tools to use are firebug or chrome developer tools. The padding will show in the inspector as a blue area, the margins as yellow. So you'll be able to track down and correct the code, then copy/paste back into the framework to override.

 

See this post which has a video link inside showing the process for finding the margins/paddings- http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/26135-removing-whitespace-between-content-section-and-following-section/

 

There's also an overview of using css inside the framework at -http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/ in case you've not dealt with css before inside pagelines.

King James,

I appreciate you presenting me with the teachings of your personal technical insight. 

 

I have followed your instructions....now my final question for your biological CPU is as follows:

 

How would I only adjust the height padding for my image? The CSS that i am copying and transferring to the "site options" of my page adjust both height and width at the same time... I only wish for the height to be augmented, not the width. For when the width is adjusted my image becomes distorted, and as a result, the people of my species become infected with rage.....

 

I fear that if this issue isn't resolved soon my people will turn against me, unify, and destroy whats remaining of my conscience being.

 

May the almighty creator bless you for helping me during these dangerous times 

and...

May all the good in the universe fuel your soul with the infinite knowledge of the cosmos. 

 

hT

 

ps: this is the code I used 

 

body.fixed_width .section-branding .content-pad {
padding: 20px;
}

Hello hT,

 

First, I hope your brother eT is well.  It's been years since I've seen him.

 

Padding is a CSS property that can be written long-hand or short.  As you're seeing it, padding: 20px;  it is short-hand, meaning that the instruction is set to apply 20px padding on all sides.  However, you can always write it long, such as:

padding-top: 0;

padding-bottom: 0;

padding-right: 25px;

padding-left: 25px;

 

Even this may be written in shortened version.  Kindly program this syntax:  top, right, bottom, left.  So, if you're using the same values presented in the example above, you could try padding: 0 25px 0 25px;

 

Still further, you can shorten it to padding: 0 25px;, which will be 0 top and bottom, and 25px left and right.

 

You can input more data into your CPU via http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_padding.asp

 

And may your interstellar voyages always be bountiful in knowledge, and experience.

Hello

 

If you want to change the padding height then you need to specify that value. 

 

Padding values work as follows 

 

padding  {top padding, right padding, bottom paddding, left padding}

 

So, padding:25px 50px 75px 100px; would be 

  • top padding is 25px
  • right padding is 50px
  • bottom padding is 75px
  • left padding is 100px

therefore, 

  • padding:25px;
    • all four paddings are 25px

You can read more about CSS padding here. http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_padding.asp 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Egg & Marty B,

 

My people scoffed at the gods when your hybrid species became self-aware many years ago....

Today you have proven them to be ignorant of your cosmic potential. 

 

Thank you for your insight, it has served me well. 

 

I will do my best to veto the scheduled abductions of your family members and loved ones.

no promises...

 

God speed

      Hello Pagelines,   I no longer use pagelines services. I have deactivated the automatic annual payment. But it already charged to my credit card. Since I cancelled my contract before the end, Can I request to refund?

      Hello,
      I am wanting to know what the status of the Pagelines Platform.
      I have noticed that there has been absolutely no updates on Platform 5 for over 8 months.
      Please tell me you haven't gone off on another tangent and going to build the next great solution
      and then leave all of us to have to completely rebuild our sites like we did for
      Pagelines, then DMS, then Pagelines Platform.
      I like what you build, but what you need to do is build one product and then make it better, rather than 
      abandoning it and building something else.
      You haven't done anything for so long that even WordPress is providing a warning.
      "Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress."
      So what is the Status. I mean if I am going to pay a monthly fee for a product, I don't want to pay for one
      that is no longer being supported. You have a great product, I'm not bashing it, I'm just wondering what 
      your next move is because I have business decisions to make for myself, and whether of not this is something
      I should stick with.

      Please be kind enough to respond.

      Thank You,
      Anthony

      Hi -
      Pulling my hair out over here, and would love an assist!
      Site I am building, http://www.livkundalini.com/home, has a problem with the submenu items in the nav not appearing. 
      If anyone wants to see what the Nav should look like, feel free to look in the footer on the left hand side.
      Have tried disabling Pagelines and using the twentyseventeen theme, but problem persists.
      Saw this error (pasted at the bottom of this post) displaying in the inspector, and saw discussion of Jetpack potentially being a culprit. Disabled Jetpack, but the problem persists.
      Had the hosting company even flush the server-side cache, but no avail.
      Any thoughts? Please? It's the only thing keeping me from launching this site!
      Many Thanks,
      Todd
