  • Resolved kooi2000


    Hi folks,
    This is my blog:

    As you can see I have a lot of “white” on the top. This is because of the title and subtitle, I think. Where can I remove these, so the site starts immediately without the white?
    Thanks in advance!

  • The first rule in your theme’s style.css file looks like so:

    body {
    background: #FFFFFF url(images/bg_top.gif) repeat-x;
    margin: 68px 0 20px 0;
    padding: 0;
    font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica;
    font-size: 76%;
    color: #000000;
    text-align: center;

    Change thisĀ» margin: 68px 0 20px 0;
    To look like thisĀ» margin: 0 0 20px 0;

    This takes most of the whitespace out.

    It appears to me that all the excess white space is caused by the link at the top of the page “Mennomail,” being white. If you change the link color in CSS to anything other than white, the link will become visible without hovering over it and the top of the page will look more balanced.

    Ryan, that’s it! Amazing. I searched days for that! Thanks a lot!

    No problem.
