  • Resolved andyhoyland


    Hi all.

    I am having a bit of trouble with some white space after my posts. This is only on the single post pages but I just can’t work out why!

    If anyone has a chance to look I would appreciate any ideas you may have. The site is at and it is only when I view single posts – so any of the links on the right hand side should show you the problem.

    Thanks if anyone does!

    Also – I am still having issues to double displaying of single posts if I give the post more than one category! Any suggestions…

    PS Sorry if this isn’t enough information or comes across as lazy – as always – I am happy for you just to point me in the right direction… I have searched the forums for similar things but none of the answers given so far help.

    It looks the same to me on the main page and the single post pages. Could you post a screenshot of what you’re talking about, or maybe just be more specific about your setup or what exactly you are seeing?

    Thanks for taking a look Otto.

    I have posted 2 screenshots – sorry about the quality – only have access to Paint at the moment! The first is of the front page as I see it (in Firefox on a PC but the same in IE 6 & 7 on the same PC). The second is of a single post. The red box doesn’t appear – but the white space within that box is what I don’t want!

    I am using WordPress 2. The pages validate to xhtml 1 transitional. I’ve tried disabling plugins (that always seems to be the first suggestion people make!) And I have had a look at the code for my single post. I can’t see anything that would cause this but I will probably have missed something.

    Right – I will try to include my single post code but usually the coding goes wrong for me!:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div class="container" id="content_banner">
    <img class="left"
    alt="Banner" />
    <div id="content_body">
    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h4><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"
    title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>">
    <?php the_title(); ?></a></h4>
    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>
    <p class="small">Posted on: <?php the_time('j F Y') ?>
    Category: <?php the_category(', ') ?> |
    <?php edit_post_link(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I can’t find anything in my css that would cause it either.

    Is that enough info now? I hope so. Sorry if it doesn’t post correctly…


    And yeah – I know I should probably have something in the ‘else’ section but I don’t! I did have the ‘sorry, no posts match your criteria’ thing but that didn’t make any difference!

    Sorry Otto – it was within the CSS that I found the trouble.

    Thanks again for taking a look.
