[resolved] Template help... (12 posts)

    I'm honestly not too sure if this is the right spot, so if it's not, could a mod kindly move it, please?

    ANYWHOO, here' the thing. I can't remember for the life of me, what the code to insert into the WP template to get rid of that extra spacing is. For example...

    Hiya, I’m wondering if you can link me to a specific WordPress plugin. I saw it once, but have lost it since, and can’t seam to be able to find it. I know it’s not one of yours, but I’m just hoping you know where I can find it (or if you know of some other way to achieve this, I’m all ears)

    Instead of the post looking like this:
    Date

    Post title

    Post

    Comments

    What I’m wanting to do is this:
    Date
    Post title
    Post
    Comments (with the exception, I want a blank space between each post)

    If you can help me, I’d be most appreciative

    You just want to change the spacing around the P tag. You could achieve this with some CSS, but I'd need a link to the page to tell you exactly what to do.

    .post h5, .post small, .entry p
    {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }

    See if that does what you want.

    There's nothing there about font-weight, so it should have no affect on that. Give me a link and I can check it out. That previous link is no longer working.

    I thought maybe I could have messed something up when trying to edit the templates because I want to integrate the blog into my layouts (I made 15 skins) so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but last night I was just too tired (I had been up for nearly 19-20 hours) I went to bed and decide to do the reinstall today whenever I got the computer.

    I have it reinstalled, fresh all spankin' new but it still has the spacing like that.

    I did, though, find a tutorial for what I want to do, but the tutorial is for B2 *even though the title says it's for WordPress*. So it may show you more clearly what I'm trying to accomplish. Click here for tutorial I looked in the funtion files for WordPress and didn't see the line that tutorial asks for...

    That link doesn't help because that's not WordPress code. Give me a link to the page you want to do this on again and I'll look at it in more detail.

    As soon as you talk about skins not showing up you are losing a lot of folks. We haven't got a clue what you are doing. Or why. :)

    I backed up the files, and was messing around with the code on another site of mine, and I finally figured it out! I took the <p> part out of the theme's index file (just the part before the comments link), and took out all of the <p> & </p> codes out of the wp-includes file named formatting ( in the section that starts function wpautop($pee, $br=1) {

    and made the 1 a 0) and it works :D So if a mod or someone would like to close this topic or mark it resolved or whatever people do here to signify a solution have been arrived at, that'd be great :D and tsguitar
    thanks for your help. What you said to do didn't resolve my issue, but atleast you tried :D

    I'm glad you solved it, but the way you did it means that you're going to have to modify wp-includes every time you update WordPress. You can do this using CSS and that would be a better way of taking care of things, but if you've got it working and are happy with it, fantastic.
