Support » Fixing WordPress » Gutenberg affected padding / spacing?

  • Resolved flackcannon


    Hello all,

    I clicked edit page on my homepage and it took me to the new Gutenberg editor which I hadn’t used yet and it deleted everything. I switched it back to the classic editor with a plugin and loaded a revision.

    Once I restored it to how it was before I noticed that the padding at the bottom near the footer and above the grey section is non existent. Compare it to any other page on the site and you should see what I mean. I’ve messed around with the Divi padding and spacing but nothing seemed to fix it. So thinking it’s something to do with loading up the Gutenberg editor? Tried messing around with google chromes inspect tool but I can’t seem to find the cause. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Your home page has this CSS, which seems to be what you are talking about.

    .et_pb_section_8 {
        padding: 0;

    I tried to look at another page, but it happened to be the Categories page and with infinite scroll, I was unable to see the footer except briefly. That’s really annoying, and a poor user experience. Why have a footer with links if you can’t ever get to them?

    Hi Joy, thanks for finding that bit of CSS! Got it to look the same as the rest of the pages. Thanks!

    Also that is a good point. Bit of an oversight on my part. I couldn’t get Divi theme to play nice with increasing the amount of products per page so I just installed an infinite loading plugin to combat that. But I’ve went back now and got products per page to work with Divi so should result in a nice user experience. Thanks again for the tip!
