Page Spacing Help

Postby Brian C » Mon Feb 14, 2011 4:56 pm

I've been working on updating and revamping the Classic Flatirons List and suddenly have a large gap between the section heading and the section bodies. How can I fix this? My html is not the best so I'm not sure how to help. Not sure if this is the problem but I'm opening and closing the lists with...

<table border="1" cellpadding="5">
<tbody><tr><th colspan="4">Top 10</th></tr>

Ideas?

Thanks.

Hi Brian,

I'm afraid I've got no silver bullet for you, but here are some workarounds I've tried in the past.

1. Use the <format>...</format> tags around your HTML content.
2. Pull the HTML script into Notepad .txt, copy/paste, and re-insert to your SP page.
3. Pull the HTML script into MS Word and display formatting codes - look for anything wierd, eliminate wierd codes, pull script back into .txt and return to SP.
4. Finally, when in doubt, I eliminate any excess line spaceing within my HTML. I bunch everything up as closely as I can.

Fancy? No, but I usually expell these HTML spacing demons with one or more of these methods.

Good luck, and post again if you don't get this to work.

Thanks for the ideas Sarah but after running through them the spacing seemed to get even worse. I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious but am not sure. Here is a sample of the html I'm using...

format>
<table border="1" cellpadding="5">
<tbody><tr><th colspan="4">Top 10</th></tr>
<tr><th>Rock</th><th>Route</th><th>Rating</th></tr>
<tr><td>First Flatiron</td><td><a href="http://www.summitpost.org/route/167600/first-flatiron-direct-east-face-5-6-.html">East Face Center</a></td><td>5.6S</td></tr>
<tr><td>Third Flatiron</td><td><a href="http://www.summitpost.org/route/167406/third-flatiron-standard-east-face.html">East Face</a></td><td>5.0-5.2</td></tr>
<tr><td>Third Flatiron</td><td>Friday's Folly</td><td>5.7</td><tr>
<td>Green Mtn. Pinnacle </td><td>Taking Care of Business</td><td>5.6</td></tr>
<tr><td>Stairway To Heaven</td><td><a href="http://www.summitpost.org/route/168284/skunk-canyon-stairway-to-heaven-5-4-.html">Stairway To Heaven</a> </td><td>5.3-5.4</td></tr>
<tr><td>The Backporch</td><td><a href="http://www.summitpost.org/route/320393/backporch-east-face.html">East Face</a></td><td>5.6</td></tr>
<tr><td>Pellaea</td><td><a href="http://www.summitpost.org/route/247245/pellaea-5-5-.html">East Face</a></td><td>5.5</td></tr>
<tr><td>The Fatiron</td><td><a href=http://www.summitpost.org/east-face/667773>East Face</a></td><td>5.3-5.4</td></tr>
<tr><td>The Maiden</td><td><a href="http://www.summitpost.org/route/167394/the-maiden-standard-route-north-face.html">North Face</a></td><td>5.6</td></tr>
<tr><td>The Matron</td><td>North Face</td><td>5.6</td></tr>
</tbody></table>
</format>


Any more ideas? Thanks again for the help.

Got it! I changed the opening and ending lines to <noformat> and it worked like a charm!
