Support » Theme: Freelancer » Removing extra white space

  • I am using the Freelancer theme, version .03 and I have recently removed the navigation as I do not need it for this project. Since I have removed that I have a large area of whitespace between the header and the content that I’d like to remove. It’s not as prominent on the desktop version, but I’d like to remove it for at least the mobile version.

    Any tips or ideas for CSS that would help me accomplish this?

    Can you show us a page with the issue?

    Unfortunately no, its behind a protected space with a password.

    I don’t even know where to begin pasting code, but I’ve tried a few CSS fixes and none of them have worked.

    What CSS did you add to remove the navigation?

    I just removed the navigation php file.

    Do you remember what bit of the code you removed? So that I can try to replicate your webpage via the theme’s demo site

    Well, in the freelancer theme I removed all of the text from the Navigation.php file. That removed the navigation bar on both desktop and mobile, but there is a weird space left now, I assume because it’s holding the place of the menu bar.

    If you’re not using a Child Theme, and if the theme doesn’t have a designated section of the dashboard for CSS modifications then do the following:

    1. Install this Custom CSS Manager plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-css-manager-plugin
    2. use its “CSS Code” section of the dashboard to hold your CSS modifications:
    3. (put this code in)

      #site-navigation {
          display: none;
      }
    4. Save

    Alternatively use your Child Theme style.css file to hold your CSS modifications

    Should I put the code back in the PHP file?

    Not in the PHP file; either in your Child Theme style.css file or using a Custom CSS plugin.

    I added it to the css plugin, however it is still showing the space.

    Sorry there’s not enough information for me to replicate your problem.
