I saw there was a header spacer of 94px heigh. I reduced that but still have a big white space. I"m not using custom 1. My first area is top row 1. How do I reduce the white space

Please remember to always post a link to your site when having issues with something on the front-end; I can't even begin to diagnose the cause of a problem if I can't see what's happening and inspect the code with Firebug.

It appears that you have a "padding-top: 120px;" applied to #s5_top_row1_wrap.  Firebug can help you find which file it's in.

i installed the site shaper and haven't done anything but delete some of the content pages and post. i did go into head spacer in style sheet and reduce from 94 to 24. so whatever it is was from the original install

You have the CSS being minified, so I have no way of being able to tell you which file has the code you need to change, unless you just change the minified CSS file, which Firebug will help you find.

The following code, placed in the style.css of the theme, may do what you want:
Code:
#s5_top_row1_wrap
    padding-top: 0px !important;
}

Keep in mind that this is technically considered custom coding and is not officially covered by support.




I recommend checking out the Codecademy HTML and CSS course to learn the basics of how HTML and CSS work; it's free, and if you combine that with Firebug, you should be able to figure a lot of things out on your own, which is generally faster than waiting on support.

Did you enable the CSS and JS compression option in the Theme Options?  If not, then your host must be doing some form of minification, because the Shapers do not have any active.

added code and didn't do anything. is it something to do with the fact that i'm not using the custom one or open slide you have in demo? my first thing is top row one. if i can't get this one to work i'll have to find another template but seems odd that it does this right off the bat.

I just looked at your site, and it looks like you got it to do what you wanted.

Yes I kept looking as the change didn't fix it. There was also a center wrap with big top padding. I think there is something maybe in the style sheet that needs to be changed if you aren't using the custom one so that you don't have the big gap.

I like site shaper so that I don't have to worry about the extra work in creating a site. I can load and do color customizing and load content.
