Image Padding

  • SteveG6i7


    Hi Since the latest Word press update , I have been unable to remove the grey padding around images … I have been through the them editor and just cannot find the code … can you help or can u update the theme to enable image editing as I used to be able to do it .

    I do not know if this is a word press wide thing or restricted to this theme …

    I know it is only a small thing … but it really bugs me to see a grey box round an otherwise ( To Me) Perfect Button!

    Sorry to be a pain … I love Graphene and do not use any other theme

    Not a Graphene bug.

    Are you up to date with Graphene (1.9.2) and WordPress (3.9.1)?

    Have you edited any theme files?

    Have you disabled plugins to rule out a conflict issue?

    I was going to take a look at your site, but you have one of those annoying videos that plays automatically.

    WordPress 3.9 did change the padding around images, but you sound as if this is a button. Can you post a screen cap showing this?



    Hi Thanks for the prompt reply, The video is able to be turned off sorry if you do not like it.

    The change has only happened since the latest wp upgrade

    I have looked through the editor to see if I can see the image padding code but I cannot find it.

    In the last edition of word press I could edit the padding to zero in the image edit box but that option is not available in this version of Wpress…I have checked all the plugins

    is a drop box link to the screen shot…

    Many thanks for your help

    I can not reproduce this error in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or even Internet Explorer. Did you get this sorted?



    Link to your site?



    Hi Thanks for your help I had a couple days sick and could not get back …

    If You look at the you tube icon on this page you will see the grey padding around the image

    Contrast that to the images on This Page ( VIDOE ON AUTO START BUT WILL PAUSE) and you see No Padding around The icons or buttons

    In The Old version of word press you could edit the border padding in the media box when you click on the image in Edit … now you cannot

    and this seems to be hard wired into the theme I cannot see how to change it anywhere in the editor … it really annoys me ( i KNow pathetic but for the images I am using it detracts from them IMHO

    Thank you for your time

    Add to custom CSS:

    .entry-content img, .child-page img {
    border: none;

    But, IMO, it’s kinda pointless to put a separate “Watch this on YouTube” link, as there is already one in the video..



    Hi Thanks For That Kenneth, there is huge SEO benefits by the interlinking of the two in this way … it may seem pointless but the impact on video rank makes it worth while

    it is not just this particular button that is affected either every button wether it be for you tube or to a landing page were clean and then suddenly had the border imposed after the latest wpress update

    Thank you very much for your help



    The CSS width property specifies the width of the element’s content area. The content area is the portion inside the padding, border, and margin of an element.

    So, if an element has a specified width, the padding added to that element will be added to the total width of the element. This is often an undesirable result.
