Solved

Hi Friends,

 

I am currently using the Showcase theme. Can someone please advise how to reduce the white space between the sections? For example, the gap between Slideshow and Collection list section. If it needs to be adjusted for each section, I would also like to do the same after the featured items and collection section, and before/after the video and between footer and above footer sections and between products on collection pages. Here is my store homepage link. My Apparels Bridal Studio 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Note: I marked on screenshot where I want to reduce space on my homepage.

Hi there @myapparelsuk!

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Shopify Community to share your query.

 

It looks like you're selling bridal fashion, is this a new business or are you moving an existing venture online?

 

How you can get support for a given theme would depend on who has created that theme.

 

In this case, as you're using the Showcase theme this is developed and supported by Clean Canvas

 

You can contact your theme's developers using their contact form here, and you can also browse their support articles here

 

That said, we do not recommend that merchants remove whitespace from their store's themes as a general rule.

 

Whitespace allows for greater readability and accessibility for your customers, and removing it would decrease them.

 

Check out this external article for some more info on the importance of whitespace in design.

@Don Yes you are right, White space is important but as you can see in my case gap is too much and looks ugly. Thats why I want to reduce. After slider there is too much gap. Also after every section.

@iCart_App After pasting your codes on desktop white space is reduced but on mobile version showing the same.

I need to do this as well in the Dawn theme... remove space between sections.

I tried this code but it didn't work.
