  • Resolved columbo



    can someone please tell me how to get rid of the gap between the text and the video on my site?

    I’ve tried using a youtube video and get the same problem. When i put
    between the paragraphs on a post the gap simply moves to another position.

    Is there asomething i need to edit in the theme editor?

  • i’m now pretty darn sure the problem lies with the latest version of wordpress.

    i say this because i’ve tried going back to the default theme setting, and changing the theme itself to no avail. i’m going to revert to the previous version of wordpress to figure this thing out.

    It’s because of your css.

    <p> tags have a margin-bottom set by default.

    if you add something like
    p {margin-bottom:3px;}
    to your css file

    That may help

    hey miocene22, this is good to hear as i was just about to go surgical on my site via my ftp trying to roll-back to a previous wp version, lol.

    i’ve had a look at the css but can’t find p {margin… anywhere.

    i’ve posted my css in the wp bin.

    would it be too much trouble to have a peep and let me know what to remove/add?

    much appreciated.

    i’ve had a look at the css but can’t find p {margin… anywhere.

    That’s ok, just add it to your css file.
    The margin is automatically added by your browser unless you specify it to be something else

    just tried this to no avail.

    the only other thing i can think of is that somehow wp 2.8.6 has a bug of some sort.

    i mean, if it were the css then the problem should have been resolved with a different theme, right?

    also, i’ve used this theme before and didn’t have this formatting error. that was on wordpress 2.8.5.

    has anyone had a problem with version 2.8.6?

    Can you post a screenshot….

    Your page looks fine on my browser:

    Can anyone please help with this? i’m still having troubles with it.

    i haven’t reverted back to the previous wp version yet. i’m hoping the problem is more straight forward.

    come on guys, still seeking relief from this.
    someone else has confirmed that it may be that the stylesheet needs editing but i don’t know

    1. what to change to correct the issue?
    2. why i didn’t have this problem with the theme when i used it for another site?
    3. why switching to a different theme yesterday didn’t solve the problem?

    well, after rolling back to wordpress 2.8.5 i still have the formatting problem.

    anyone still there?

    “failed i have!”

    is there any hope?

    Don’t know if it helps any, but FYI I don’t have the problem with IE 8.0.6001.18828, but it shows up in FireFox 3.5.5.

    OK – can you share how this was resolved?

    I found the All in One Adsense and YPN plugin to be the culprit – I was running version 1.84 – deactivated it and poof the problem was gone.
