CSS incorrect spacing on home page

5 years 6 months ago - 5 years 6 months ago #123825 by Zusamna
CSS incorrect spacing on home page was created by Zusamna
Hi, I've asked for help before, but alas you couldn't see my site because it was on our test server. Now it's in maintenance mode on production and is visible.

I commissioned a web developer from another group (one we are merging with) to create my home page for VSP and for Heliophysics.

The home page for Heliophysics is perfect, but that was done secondly. There are spacing issues on the home page for VSP. It's overwhelming to me and I don't want to ask the person to fix it unless I have to.

Any suggestions on where to tweak the CSS? I've tried several things and it's just not working.

They are the column headings Fellowships, Workshops, & Resources and Announcements.

Announcements used to read Opportunities and Announcements which was a double line. I took out Opportunities and threw it off more than it was.

Hi Zusamna,

Important: don't post login details. This is a public forum and anybody can have access to your comments.

I remove the sensitive information from your reply, even the login didn't worked for me.
Change the login details as soon as possible, for security reasons.

It's overwhelming to me and I don't want to ask the person to fix it unless I have to.

May you point, which specific spacing? We have two tutorials that will guide you in these type of situations:

Inspect the HTML and play with the CSS: www.ostraining.com/blog/drupal/theme-developer/
Add custom CSS to Drupal: www.ostraining.com/blog/drupal/css-injector/


Kind regards,
Valentín

Hi,

The login is just has authenticated access like the public would, except the site is in maintenance. Is that still not okay?

The VSP Screen shot shows the home page and the spacing is way off, the Heliophysics Screen shot shows that the page spacing is neat and tidy.

Hi,

It's on production, so it needs to be hidden right now. But I've taken it out of maintenance. If you would let me know when I can put it back.

VSP Home Page
vsptest.ucar.edu/

Heliophysics Home Page
vsptest.ucar.edu/heliophysics/home

Thank you.

Thanks Zusamna,

I noticed that vsptest.ucar.edu/heliophysics/home
Is pulling in "font-weight: normal;"
from vsptest.ucar.edu/sites/default/themes/he...ss/layout.css?o3a0yw
around line 139

on vsptest.ucar.edu/
"font-weight: normal;" is being override by another part of the css.

I'd pop it back into maintenance mode and have a look through the lines from 139 + see if you can see any other inconsistency as you change a rule it does't mean another override won't come into affect so it might be a case of small tweaks and then looking though all the css again to make sure nothing has changed.

Thanks,
Daniel
