Support » Fixing WordPress » White space below post

  • On the bottom of the latest, (top) post, the white space below the post continues to the end of the menu bottom, then the second post begins there. If the menu is 10 inches long, the white space is 10 inches long.

    Does this in IE and Firefox but Mozilla is fine. Tried adjusting the width of menu and container but didn’t work.

    Sorry, it’s:

  • a link to your site would be lovely

    I can just imagine it 🙂

    You have this <br clear="all" /> in your topmost post. I bet that’s the problem.
    Now, how did I *solve* a similar problem ages ago….

    ah-ha! I put clear=”right” cause my image was aligned to the right… actually the clear attribute doesn’t even validate… ok, wasn’t I a lot of help… *goes back to pondering*

    You could put the image(s), without an align attribute, inside <p style="text-align:center"></p> and then the text in another paragraph?

    Hi Minna,
    I had this problem when I first began WP and can’t remember what the fix originally was. Seems a manipulation of the clear tag fixed it.

    If I take the br clear tag out, the bottom post overlaps the first post, merging them together.

    did you try the paragraph idea I had? 🙂 I mean:
    <p style="text-align:center">[image here]</p>
    <p>[text here]</p>
    or does it completely mess up the validation…

    Ok, that worked great Minna, thanks a lot!


    what would cause a 3-5″ white space on the main index of my site after all content and then finally the footer?
    It doesn’t seem to be there in any other form… on other pages…

    Browser – Moz. Firefox
