[resolved] Unwanted breaks and paragraphs on top of columns (3 posts)

    The discussion on this issue started on the previous topic, but since it hasn't been solved yet, I've decided to open a dedicated topic.

    As I wrote before, the plugin adds a blank space at the top of the columns it creates. Sometimes the blank is incremental, e.g.: the first column has none, the second has some, the third has some more, and so on.

    An analysis of a published page using Firebug shows that the blank space on top of the columns contains either a break (<br>) or an empty paragraph (<p></p>).

    While it's possible to alter the plugin's CSS with something like:

    .post-entry br {
    	display:none;
    }

    ...in order to make the intruding break disappear, it is at the cost of having all other breaks in the columns vanish. Sometimes this can be afforded, but it isn't a real fix to the problem.

    Worse still, when the offender is an empty paragraph, the use of something along the lines of:

    .post-entry p {
    	display:none;
    }

    ...is unthinkable. :/

    So, what to do?

    P.S.: Here's a link to the same issue commented on a forum.

    Thanks! This is (or at least it was last time I checked) the only plugin on WordPress.org capable of generating responsive columns — it was such a shame that it had some bugs!
