Too much Padding at the bottom of Flipper

Recommended Posts


Hi to all,


I am experimenting with Flipper and each time I load the page there is a very big gap beneath the Flipper section. This happens on both Firefox and Chrome. However, the problem goes away immediately on Chrome when you activate the 'Developer Tools'. The problem also goes away immediately in Firefox when you activate 'Fire Bug'.


This problem had been happening for months but I ignored it because I was not using Flipper on my home page. However, now I am looking at using Flipper on my home page it would be good to make sure that there is always equal padding beneath and on-top of the Flipper section when the page loads (just like what happens with other sections).


I have also just noticed that if you use the arrow icons and navigate through pages / posts the padding at the bottoms suddenly resolves itself and equal padding is shown.

Thanks, James

I am seeing the issue, especially when it reduces when you open up Dev tools. However, when a user has experienced this in the past, it was related to either a custom script added by the user or third party plugins installed. Can you remove all custom CSS/LESS/scripts you may have added and disable all plugins please.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I am using the Powerloop plug-in on my DMS website and can sort my elements by Postdate, but I want to sort the pages in Alphabetic order.
      Actually the same question for sorting Flipper content in Alphabetic order instead of Ascending / Descending / Random options.

      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,

      We only want the images and title mouse-over, not link/click to the actual post the title is from.
      Any ideas anyone?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.
