[Theme: EvoLve] How to remove spacing above list items (9 posts)

    Hi all,

    I've got an unordered list in one of my posts that goes something like this:

    	<li>Item 1</li>
    	<li>Item 2</li>

    When displayed, there is a space above the first line item that I'd like to get rid of. I think I figured out that I have to modify the base.css file and add something like {margin-top: 0; padding=0;}

    But for the life of me I can't get it to work. Am I looking in the wrong place? Do I need to modify this code in more than one place?

    I'm modifying it in base.css in this section, like this: (And it doesn't work)

    /* Lists: (ul, ol, dl) */
    ul, ol, dl { margin-left: 15px; margin-top: 0; padding: 0; }
    .nav { margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0; }
    .entry-content ul, .entry-content ol, #search-query { margin-left: 25px; margin-top: 0; }
    li ul, li ol { margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0; padding: 0; }
    ul ul, ol ol, ul ol, ol ul { margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0; padding: 0; }
    ol { list-style-type: decimal; }
    ul, ul ul, ul ul ul { list-style-type:none;list-style-image:url('../images/list-style.gif'); }

    Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    a url is worth a thousand words.

    No url sorry, as the site is not live yet.

    I'll try to give you a pictorial representation - it looks like this:


    • Item 1
    • Item 2

    I'd like to remove the gap before the first list item.

    You are on the right track by editing the css. Let me know when you have a live url that demonstrates the problem.

    Easiest way, since we can't see a live site, is to install the firebug addon for firefox

    This will let you point to elements on your page and see where the space is coming from

    A margin or padding could be inherited from a variety of places, in firebug you can see the exact rule and file which is applying, then you can modify it, or create a more specific rule

    Thanks everyone for your responses. Here's a URL now:

    If you look under Lesson 1, there is a list of objectives, and it gives you an idea of what I'm talking about. It was coded with simple

    • tags. How can I get rid of the gap just after Objectives?
