Too much blank space at the top of my posts


On my blog ( on my posts, below the items at the top that are present on all posts (social share buttons and a read time plugin), before the content I publish, there is about 1" of blank white space.

I’d love to shrink that by about half. I’ve looked at the .css code and scoured the forums here and haven’t quite found the answer yet.

I’m using the Astrid theme (free version) and up-to-date on it.

Any help is appreciated!



Hello Jeff,

Can you please provide some explanatory screenshots?

You can upload screenshots to your WordPress Media Library and share a link, or you can use one of the online services (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.).

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman

Thanks for following up!

Here’s a screen shot:

It’s not the biggest issue in the world, I just thought it would be nice to shrink the white space a little.

The post I’m showing is at URL - in case you need to see it.



Hello Jeff,

I have just inspected that post and it looks like you have an invisible iframe element there. It might have something to do with Facebook likes functionality, do you have such plugin installed that doesn’t work?

Kind Regards, Roman.
