    What is it?!

    Welcome to Harborne Primary School

    Can anyone shed some light on what that blooming great white space is underneath our news? (Center)

    Thats all i can display at one time which is annoying as if i have more then one article displayed is shoves all the others off.

    Anyone help me get rid of it?

    Is there a module position underneath the breadcrumb called message? is there anything published to that position?

    *edit just read the post again I'm unsure where you are on about underneath the front page article? or at the top?

    I spend a lot of time staring at your avatar...lol!

    Erm, underneath the text about a parents survey.

    Ive just looked for that message module...i cant see it in the module manager? I'm guessing its still in the index.php?

    Struggling to see the problem to be honest - there is white space but it appears to just be because your sidebar menus are longer than your news content, can't see anything unnecessary... what exactly is/isn't happening that you're expecting?

    BTW - I'm viewing in Chrome, which browser are you using? Does the problem persist across different browsers?

    So if you publish another article on the front page it pushes the one thats there now off to the right? is that right. maybe it is the basic parameters on the front page blog layout, menus>>main menu>>>>home look at the parameters on the right

    Inside your contentpaneopen tabletags you have an extra paragraph tag which just contains a non breaking space.

    Under this in the html:
    Code:
    <table class="contentpaneopen">
    <tr>
    <td valign="top" colspan="2">
    Is this line, which is causing the extra space. Just delete this from your template or content (I cannot tell which).

    Code:
    <p align="justify">&nbsp;</p>
    Hope this helps.

    Rush_tech is close, it'll push the text about the parents survey off into the ether..so its no longer shown on the front page. There should be another article on there, but as soon as i added that little bit about swimming being cancelled it shoved it off! When i remove it, the other one will come back. Basically that space is too small but there seems to be a lot of room it could spread too...

    That sounds more like how many front page articles you have allowed. Lemme hunt in ours & I'll find where that is set.

    EDIT: From the admin control panel hover over "Menus" then select Main Menu (it may be called something else but should have a * by it)
    Select the "Home" link and on the right hand side under "Parameters (Basic)" there is a "leading" option that is probably set to 2. Change that. You can also add a number to the "links" option to give just a link to older articles at the bottom.
