Reducing padding/white space throughout (10 posts)

    I successfully adjusted the whitespace around the header image by using advice in this forum. However, I cannot find the answer to how to remove the extra padding in other areas too. Specifically, reduce the space between nav and wide bar, wide bar and content, and content and footer. Pulling the widgets in the sidebar closer together would be great too.

    Here's my site http://pennywilliamsauthor.com

    Please give specific instructions as I do not know css and php. THanks!

    I have been looking for help on how to reduce the padding ABOVE headings in the sidebar but cannot find anything on this topic. I've tried adjusting padding within CSS and it doesn't change a thing.

    Here's our site: http://wyominginstructionalnetwork.com/

    I'm not well-versed with CSS, but can work my way through with guidance. Thank you!

    Hi to get rid of the white space around header use this in the style.css:

    #site-title {
    margin:0;
    line-height:0;
    float:left;
    }

    @hartmutnz - please do not advise people to modify theme files - changes should be made in Custom CSS or a child theme.

    WPyogi maybe you could have helped pennywilliams 2 weeks earlier.. Custom css of child theme is fine if people know how to do so... sometimes they just want to get things done the easy way.

    Pinboard has a custom CSS option built into it - there is NO reason to modify the style.css file - as those changes will be overwritten when the theme is updated. How do you think that helps people?

    ..of course I meant to say put the code into the CUSTOM CSS under the STYLE in the EDITOR section... good luck :-)

    Any advice on reducing the amount of white space (padding) ABOVE the headings in the sidebar? I'm not referring to the site title, but the headers in the sidebar. Please see my query above.

    Thank you.

    Hi - see if this CSS (add to custom CSS option) works:

    #sidebar-left .widget, #sidebar-right .widget {
        margin-bottom: 0;
    }
