Support » Fixing WordPress » Weird Banner Placement (Empty Spaces)

  • Hi,
    I just started my website,, yesterday and it is coming along nicely. However, I put in some banner ads and they are creating some weird blank spaces in between my website’s content and the banners themselves. If you go to my website you can see what I’m talking about. Look here:

    See how there is room between the “1 mistake ad” and my categories bar? And the room between the “eating habits” title and the article it’s for?

    Is there any way to fix it so that the ads and the other parts of my website fit together neatly? I’m kind of a noob at all this, so try to keep HTML advice or whatever pretty clear if possible.

    Thanks very much :),
    James Smith

  • You have margin at bottom you your menu look for this code style.css
    .top {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #EEEEEE;
    border-top: 1px solid #EEEEEE;
    float: left;
    margin: 15px 0 30px;
    width: 100%;

    Change 30px to 3px or any amount you comfortable with

    if you still want to narrow it more then

    look for this code

    .narrowcolumn {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 12px 0 40px;
    width: 68%;

    Change 12px to 2px or any amount you comfortable with

    Thanks govpatel I’ll try that and report back on it.

    Edit: Thank you, both of those things worked pretty well, I have less of a margin between the “1 mistake” add and my categories. However, I still have the space between my article title and the article itself. Any tips for that?

    Anyone know what the problem with my article title empty space is?
