Reduce space between header and content (7 posts)

    I am trying to get rid of the white space between the header and the content (and while we're at it, all the other margins too) I have literally tried changing padding everywhere, and nothing is happening. I am really frustrated and would like to make the margins all around the slideshow just 10px. I am using the 2010 Weaver theme, and the URL is http://www.educatemefoundation.org.

    Thanks for your help in advance! I have spent waaay too many hours trying to figure this out.

    You might want to look at .entry-content and .entry-summary
    #slideshow-wrapper, #main and #content. Looks like there's some margins and padding there. You might also look at css for img and ul because that could be affecting your slideshow.

    This should be

    <hr />

    That would close up text to the slide show by three lines.

    Install Firefox Firebug ; then when you hover over any html element; you will see the line number

    of all the css involved.

    This way you can investigate and fix further css issues by yourself and quicker.

    kmessinger probably did that ... see how easy it is now ...

    thanks k....

    Thank you for answering so quickly guys. I may need a little extra help, I am really new to CSS and don't have a whole lot of knowledge about it. I looked under .entry-content and the like, but the padding is only 12px, would that be what I need to take out?

    Kmessinger, you are talking about the line I have under the slideshow, I am not worried so much about under the slideshow, more so the top, left and right margins. I want it to fit more snug in that corner.

    I downloaded Firebug and will test that on my lunch break from work.

    Yes, change the padding to 0 and the slideshow will move up. To tighten up left and right you would need to change the size of the #content width which decreases the margins by shrinking the box.

    Hey guys,

    I appreciate all of your help. I am still having a lot of trouble though. I managed to move it up 12px, but that's it. I have searched throughout my stylesheet and just cannot imagine where the space is coming from. Is there somewhere else I should be looking? Is there anyway one of you could do it for me? I am really tired of trying to locate it.

    Thank you for your help,
