Strange space in a page

    why does this happens? How should I solve it?

    Hi 007me,

    I’ve noticed that happening to me too, recently. I’m not experienced enough to know why it’s happening but I did manage to fix it with some css in my child theme. Here’s the CSS from your site when I use Firebug to inspect the element:

    code {
    font: 12px 'Courier New',monospace;
    background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #F8F8F8;
    padding: 0px 2px 2px;
    margin: 0px 2px;
    border: 1px solid #D5D5D5;
    border-radius: 3px;
    overflow: auto;
    white-space: pre-wrap;}

    Mine was similar and I just changed all the values to either zero, or none, depending on the class. I’ve tested this with yours and it works so perhaps you can use that as an interim measure unil someone more experienced comes along and can address the “why” of this occuring…

    Hope that helps.

    It looks like one of your plugins is adding a paragraph with an empty code block in it. Possibly the wp-polls plugin? I’m not entirely sure, so this is a guess, but I would check your settings for this plugin.


    I can’t identify this on your site. Your solution will work, but if you ever use the code block, it may look somewhat strange.



    I’m using wp-polls on this page.

    I’ll try and ask the developer.



    Asked the developer. He sent me back to the theme developer.

    I’ll appreciate any help.

    See here:



    Something is adding some blank <code> tags into the page. Edit that page and remove them.

    You can change its display only for that page with this,

    #post-500 code {
    background: none;
    border: none;




    So this page ID is post-500?



    500 is the page ID. post-500 is the page’s content div ID.



    Ok, that was a stupid mistake of mine 🙂

    Edited the page thru the text editor and removed the not needed code from there.
