Hi there,

Me again with another question..

We`ve decided to narrow down the social media options to pretty much zero.. However if we disable them all, a huge white block is left.

I`ve tried renaming the social.php from layouts, i`ve tried to remove the social code out of social.php but so far no succes..

Any idea how to get this done?

Yes on a postnote template :) Else i wouldnt have posted it here would i? :mrgreen: :P

Anyway example: go to (yeah i know SEO has to be turned on :P )

There you`ll see a large white chunk under the texts and under that small grey line there`s a part for social media stuff (called div id=social) if i`m right.

On Template Manager open PostNote template parameters > advanced settings and enable the use of css override.
Them open this file ../templates/gk_postnote/css/override.css and add this line there:

Code: Select all
#gkSocialAPI {display: none}

This will remove part of that blank space, but there other part that is created by the article structure.
You probably copied this text from a Word document and paste it there.
This is not the best way to have a clean article structure, because you are importing MS Word classes.

Copy that text and paste it on a regular text document (.txt).
Copy again and now paste it on the joomla article editor.
Now you can set paragraphs, breaks or even make use of the template typography.

Cheers ;)
