  • I don’t see any big gaps (in FireFox).

    I see what you’re talking about. Something is putting some kind of sidebar-spacer entry in there.

    What does the top of your theme’s functions.php file look like? Post a copy of the file on http://wordpress.pastebin.ca and post the link to it back here.

    Thanks.

    It would be great to know how to set the amount of space, and how to get rid of the dividing line if need be?

    Well, do you want to get rid of the space or just adjust it?

    Getting rid of the space means removing <li class="sidebar-spacer"></li> from the code you posted for us.

    Adjusting it means editing the .sidebar-spacer bit in your theme’s CSS file.

    When I’ve tried to adjust the sidebar spacer values in
    http://wordpress.pastebin.ca/952575
    They make no difference on the page
    eg width, margin-top, margin-bottom
    How come?

    So the sidebar spacer may have to just be removed completely.

    The other thing I’m desperate to figure out on this issue is how to replace the widget header (eg ‘Recent Posts’) with a jpeg, so the column on the left visually matches the (non widget) column on the right.

    Thanks

    Try setting the height to 0px.

    Although I’d just get rid of them entirely.

    Changing the height didn’t make any obvious difference, so I will just get rid completely.

    Would you know how to replace the widget header (eg ‘Recent Posts’) with a jpeg?

    I’ve been told to look for:
    function wp_widget_recent_entries($args) {}
    in
    wp-includes/widgets.php
    But then they never explained how to alter it once it was found?
