This time on the left side. I've been looking but can't seem to get a bead on it.

Since this is my first run at theming OCP. I'm trying to stay in the reservation :)

So, I'm being very careful to just modify what is there and not step to far outside the box.

Enough of the excuses, did I mention I also sux at this stuff :lol:

So, the left side there has a margin of about 5px, I'm not finding it in CSS and so far, I haven't found it in the templates.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thx OCPeeps!

I'm not sure off-hand, but try hovering the mouse over the nodes there in Firebug and see at which point that gap becomes encompassed by the red border Firebug shows. Chances are then that node will have some padding creating it, or a descendant node will have some margin creating it.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
