Solved How to remove double spacing in forum topics

Post by Gimpy Cat on August 15th 2012, 1:49 pm

Hi

I just added a new section to my forum, all the new forums under the new category display with double spacing between the forum name and the listed moderators. How do I remove the double space so the moderators names appear directly beneath the forum topic. The double spacing is making that section of the forum huge. It hasnt happened to me before. Hoping for some help

Thanks in Advance Smile

Thanks Smile

But I need to see the new section which is having problem to see what exactly is causing it. You can check if there is any content in the forum description box (in admin panel), if you don't want to put any description for those forums, the description box should be completely blank; even a space or a line break can cause this problem.

does that help at all? Ive checked in admin under the categories and forums section, I compared the new topics to old ones that dont have the double space and cant see anything different. Do you need to use an acct to sign into the forum to see whats going on?

I don't see any double space, I see sub forums that in indented as they should be though. What exactly do you mean by double space?

normal forum layout, all tight and compact, sub forums sit indented right up under category headings and any description & moderator names sit right beneath.



The image above shows the new section I added, I put a red arrow on it to show how its got a blank double space between the forum name and then the moderator info. I want to remove the blank space and have the moderator names sitting right beneath the forum topic name as it usually does and does on the rest of the original forum
Thanks

I think you need to edit that section and "attach" it to Quilts we like. That is a new sub forum is it not?

They are all new sub forums all attached to a new category I created (doesnt show in that screen snip). I did it the same as I always have, Ive even pulled up and compared normal layout sections with new ones, there doesnt seem to be any difference in information entered or set up in admin, thats why Im puzzled as to why its gone the way it has.

Only difference being they are hidden forums to the public. I don't know, I would play around with attaching forums, but I know you would like a definitive answer. I'm not sure hopefully someone else can help you.

Good luck. Smile

Can you post a screenshot of how the forums & categories are attached to each other in the admin panel?

Also, tell how do you want it to be on the main forum page with the help of a screenshot please.

Hi Sanket

Here is hows its attached in admin



I was this blank space removed, the red arrow points to it


So that on the main forum page its all tight and tidy the same as the rest of the forum like this with no blank spacing


Does that make sense? Thanks for your help

There is that <br> thing in the description of those forums as slg mentioned earlier. You need to remove it.

Administration Panel > General > Forum > Categories & Forums
Click on the forum name
Then check the description there.

See if its working. If you can't find it, tell me which all forums do you want to remove it & i will do it.

I found it and will start removing the break code, wonder how come it did that, its never inserted that before when I have set up categories & forums. I just went through and removed it from each forum, some of them did not show the <br> code when I first pulled it up but when I tried a second and on one a third time it appeared and then I was able to remove it.

Thanks again for everyones help, there are a whole lot of little old ladies I help out by running the forum for them and you helped them too. Thank You Hello
