Please look at http://the-write-approach.com/.
what is causing the horizontal space between header and body, body and footer?

also happens at http://cruisinautobody.com/gallery/ - but not such a concern.

The first space can be removed by setting those images to


The other space is caused by the red parts which should be removed:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
body {
margin-left: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;


<table width="875" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="center">
<td align="center" valign="top"><img src="http://the-write-approach.com/images/footer.jpg" alt="footer" width="875" height="225" border="0" /></td>


which you should remove altogether.

You also have multiple <body> tags among a few other things.

You should look through the source code of your site and compare it to a unmodified Atahualpa.

The basic structure should be


These tags should only appear once: <html>, </html>, <head>, </head>, <body>, </body>

I've ignored this for a while, but it's still haunting me.




Can you give me more instructions on how to apply display: block if that is the problem?

Thanks so much.

you will have to be a bit more descriptive about what is wrong. I look at both sites and say "Ok, that looks nice' since I'm not designing it I can't tell what you think is off

It would also help if you let us know the versions of Atahualpa and WP you are using.
If you like my help, please consider donating. I am happy to provide greater detail on this and other topics if you hire me. Please send detailed support requests to me as a private message, thank you.
