  • Resolved Mel


    Hello everyone.

    Apologies, I might get the technical terms wrong, but this is my question:

    When I do bullet points, and I make the second bullet point line as an indent (in other words, the second line moves to the right in relation to the bullet point line it precedes), then this new bullet point line seems to have almost a double spacing between it and the previous bullet point. The spacing seems fine when I type it in the Editor, but when I preview my post, the spacing appears.

    Someone on a website referred to this as not “tight” bullet points? I don’t want there to be any additional spacing between any of the bullet points, regardless how many indents I make.

    I have no idea if this is a general WP thing, or because I use Astra as a theme. I tried several plugins to help overcome this problem, but they all do the same thing.

    Does anyone please know a CSS code that will remove this double spacing universally on my website so that if I create a new post, those pesky spaces will be gone?

    Thank you for any and all help.

  • If possible you should add a link to your site. Spacing in css can be achieved in different ways. Examples would be using padding, margins. or flex boxes with options like space-between or space-around. Without knowing or seeing the code it unlikely anyone will be able to present you with a solution.

    Hi there!

    Can you please share the page link? 🙂

    I made a Google Docs Document with screenshot of the problem if that is ok?

    I just discovered when I copy the text to a brand new page/course (I use LearnDash, to create different courses..), that it all works fine. BUT, if I copy the exact same text, and paste it just lower down on the same page (of the original course), the problem still persists.

    So, it is more than likely then that it is not a WP problem, but something I did to affect some of my pages. But, I cannot image what.

    If you have any advice, I would really really appreciate it. I have banged my head against every wall in my apartment now..I am out of walls. I cannot for the life of me figure out what I am doing wrong.

    Thanks for any and all help.


    Hi there!

    The issue is coming from the theme.

    However, I have found your website URL but I’m not able to identify the page with bullet lists.

    Can you please share the link of a page with bullet lists and the issue?

    The reason I’m asking for Page URL because I’ll try to resolve the issue through CSS. 🙂

    Hi Animesh,

    Thank you so much for you interest in my problem. I appreciate your help. I think this page will now be open to be viewed by anyone:

    The third bullet point from the top is a typical example of what I am getting.

    Thank you so much again..


    Hi there!

    Go to Appearance > Customize > Custom CSS and please paste the below CSS there:

    .learndash-wrapper .ld-focus .ld-tab-content ul:not(.blocks-gallery-grid):not(.wp-block-gallery) {
        margin: 0 !important;

    It is working on my side, see here:

    It should also work on your side. 🙂

    Animesh, I do not even know where to begin to thank you. I have spend literally days on this problem, searching and trying to find solutions. I think I installed half of WP’s plugins to see if something will fix it.
