    Hi all, I just can't figure out where to find the extra <p></p> tags located at the top and bottom of the content page. I'm using google chrome, and I see that they are there, with no content. why and how to find them / get rid of them?

    I've tried this:

    wpautop control, which doesn't work,

    and this:

    remove_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop' );

    which does remove the top, BUT, it creates a huge gap at the bottom content and the footer!

    the website is: http://waxedwaxbar.pplsnet.com/

    I've taken out the filter for now

    ok, so its not resolved actually.
    When I put in the child function:

    remove_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop' );
    and hard coded the #main height, things looked great.
    BUT, all of the content won't keep
    or <p> tags at all in the editor, so all I get is a continuous line! not good.

    So I'm still stuck in trying to figure out how to get rid of the top and bottom empty <p></p> tags from the content area...

  5. Hi there, the only paragraph tag on your homepage that I see in your source is here:

    <p><code><div class="slideshow_container slideshow_container_style-light" style="height: 480px; " data-session-id="0" data-style-name="style-light" data-style-version="2.2.19">

    You might try turning off your slideshow plugin (Slideshow Jquery Image Gallery, right?) and see if the stray tag goes away.

    sorry for taking so long to respond.
    I've been trying to find the best way to describe what's going on, since I don't consider myself a PHP person, just a systems admin.

    here is an image to help explain

    Ok, so I disabled the "slider", aka the slideshow_container, to see if that was the problem. Nope. When I have an empty page, there is no <p></p> at all. In the image on top, you will see that I then decided to put in the letter X, and low and behold, the X went inside the <p></p>

    so that's ok. Fine, I can live with having the main page having an "extra" <p> when there is no letters. Its a shortcode.
    What's really bugging me, is the footer issue.

    you can see on the image at the bottom, there is a LOT of extra space betwen the bottom of the div id="content role="main", and the top of the footer, and I just can't figure out what's causing it.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Looks like that's the margin here:

    .hentry {
        margin: 0 0 3.23em;
        position: relative;

    You only need to COPY that bit to your child theme and change the margin.
