  • 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

    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,
