[Plugin: Link Library] space between category title and links

  • I just started using link-library and was following a few tips to another writer for formatting the table/entries. My problem is there’s a huge gap between the link category title and the list of links.

    I see the problem in Chrome and IE but not Firefox.

    Here’s the page:

    I’m not sure what my question is other than does anyone know what’s going wrong on the page?

  • I am having the same problem with my Link Library setup, although my blank space is appearing above my link tables on my pages. You seem to have resolved your issue without receiving any direction here. May I ask what you did to resolve it? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Alisha,

    This would usually mean that you have an information row checked to display without having set the proper [tr] and [/tr] tags before and after that data entry (with the real html tags and not the square brackets shown here obviously).

    Perhaps you could send me a screenshot of your settings or export your settings so I could import them on my side?

    Yannick

    Yannick, thank you so much for your reply! I will send you a both a screenshot and an exported file of my settings (through your Yannick’s Corner “Contact Me” widget.) I will only send the screenshot and settings for one of the 10 libraries – Library #1, which is the one I copied from one of your examples and the one from which I copied the settings for all of my other libraries. Thanks again!

    Alisha

    I will be sending 5 screenshots images of the library settings and 1 CSV file of the settings. Thanks again!

    Alisha

    Oops – I cannot send you the CSV settings file using that widget on your Yannick’s Corner Page. Is there some other way for me to send it to you?

    Thanks!

    Hi Alish

    The tag after the Link Description does not have the right closing bracket, which could definitely cause this problem. Try to fix it to look like the Link Notes and Link Name.

    Yannick

    Yannnick, I actually caught and corrected that error right after I sent you the images, and unfortunately, it did not make a difference in any of the tables. 🙁 Any other thoughts? While I am essentially a coding novice, I am not opposed to getting into the code and making changes with some direction if there is something you can recommend to correct this “white space” issue. (These link tables are a big selling point on our website, and I want to make sure people don’t just see blank space at the top of the page below the header and think there are no links to be found on the page lower down.)

    Thanks again – I truly appreciate your time and your thoughts on this.

    Hi Alisha,

    Can you give me a link to the site where the problem is happening so that I can inspect the HTML code and see what seems to be wrong?

    Yannick

    Yannick,

    The website is http://abodelearning.com, and all of the links to the Link Library pages are set up in the lower navigation bar at the top of the page. It is a Membership-required page, so I have set you up as username Guest3 with password guest3.

    Thanks,
    Alisha

    I am trying to log onto your site with the login credentials above. While I am getting to a dashboard, when I go back to the site and click on some of the links category in the navigation bar, I am still getting a message that I need to be a member to see these pages.

    I’ll fix that right now – sorry about that!

    Try again now, Yannick – I turned off all page protection. 🙂

    And I modified your membership class, too.

    (If you need admin privileges, just let me know.)

    I see. You are talking about the white space between your title and the table that contains the links, right?

    I am looking at the page using Firebug and I am not seeing which elements is adding that space. The table does have a bit of extra space above it due to the following line:

    margin: 1em 0;

    inside of your theme’s style.css.

    Something else to do to gain space would be to go to the Link Library stylesheet editor and add:

    display:none

    inside of the linklistcatname block:

    .linklistcatname {
    border: 0 none;
    display: none;
    font-family: arial;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-weight: bold;
    padding-bottom: 10px;
    padding-top: 10px;
    }

    Beyond that, I think that the main entry div might need some css code to bring everything to the top but I’m not sure.

    Let me know if this helps,

    Yannick
