Support » Theme: Fifteen » Removing white space where author /post date had been

  • Resolved JaneBarnes


    I removed the author and date published, but have a white space before the text now (where the author/date had been). Does anyone know how to remove it please?
    Cheers. Jane

  • Hi Jane,

    If you post the link to your page, I’d be happy to help out.

    Hi Maria,
    My site is The space did not bother me too much, except that for some posts I have an image first and it would be nice to have the space gone so the image is seem more… not a big deal over all… Thanks for any help though! Cheers.

    I can see your page, but I can’t locate the problem. I can see some white space on the single post page, but not so much in the front page (apart from what looks like the right amount of white space on top of each image in the grid). Could you please be more precise?

    It is simply the space where the author /post date would normally be in the single post page. Not really worth too much effort to solve, I can live with it.

    Yes Jane, I guessed right then. It’s just that the link you posted took me to the home page, not to the single post page.

    In your child theme or custom CSS editor, add this rule

    .single main {
      margin-top: -50px;

    You can tweak the -50px value until you find the right amount of white space that you like.

    I hope this has been helpful, and don’t hesitate to reach out for help, I’ll be happy to guide you solve your WordPress problems.

    Cheers 🙂

    Thank you so much Maria, you are a legend! Looks so much better now! I set it to 60 and am so happy with it.
    Very much appreciate you time in helping solve this.

    Cheers, Jane

    No problem Jane, it was lovely to help you. By the way, those places are a dream!
