Could anyone shed any light on this one for me please it has been jaring my head.

Above the logo on my forum I have two spaces and I can't for the life of me find out how to get rid of them so that my logo and my links are at the very top of the page.

Here is a copy of my overall_header.tpl :

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

I don't understand your problem.
Any url of your board?

(please change your avatar: Avatar & Signature Allowances & Rules)

How do you edit your .tpl files? I personally open the code in notepad and then paste it back into Dreamweaver. From there I've been able to take out uneccessary elements in the layout view. See if that works.

Of course use whatever wysiwyg editor you like :wink:

EDIT: You may also want to try putting this in the body tag of the overall_header.tpl. Don't remove what you've got in there, just add it after the last set of attributes for links and what not.

Code: Select all

leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"
This may take out one of the blank lines.

sorry link you can see the space from my logo to the top is about two lines, I would like it right at the top.

Also I will change my avatar now, thanks for telling me.

Mr. Nissen
leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"

I tried this but it didn't seem to do anything.

Check your code...

1) you have a wack of spaces between the closing tr of Usergroups and the opening tr of Staff Site.
2) it looks like 1 space between the closing of Staff Site and opening of Register
3) and a wack of spaces between closing of Register and opening of Profile.

I downloaded the source of the main page... removed those and viloa !

Good Luck
