How to hide code block??

Recommended Posts

How do you hide code blocks from showing up as white space on your website?? This seems like a huge oversight on behalf of Squarespace. Unless there is an obvious way to do it I haven't found yet?

I have code blocks for my anchor links that obviously have to go in specific spots on my page and there's no place for them to just be inline with something else. And when I use "display: none" in the custom css, they stop working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

It's not always necessary to hide a Code or Markdown Block. For example, if you've added an ID for an anchor link, it could be added with the code for the title of that section. For example:


<h2 id="myID">Heading</h2>

If you really do need to remove the spacing created by the Block, you'll need to remove the set the default 17 pixels of padding that appear on each side.

I have this exact same question. It didn't mean anything when I was only using 1 link on the page. But now I have three anchor links and you can clearly see the space between the line above and the image below (https://www.callummckirdy.com/resources)

In answer to @paul2009 I have no heading that I can hide this behind unless I change the floating heading over the image which I don't really want to do.

So I ask again, like @zaw88 did, is there a way to hide these spaces?

Thank you.

How do you hide code blocks from showing up as white space on your website?

If you really want to hide ALL code blocks then you can add this to Design > Custom CSS and it will remove the space created by the Code Block itself (17 pixels of padding around it):

.sqs-block.code-block.sqs-block-code {
  padding: 0;
}

Note that in your case, you have also added a paragraph (within the Code Block). For example, this is one of them:

<p id="cb-paper"> </p>

You'll therefore need to hide the space created by this too, using something like this:

.sqs-block.code-block.sqs-block-code p {
  margin-block-start: 0;
  margin-block-end: 0;  
}
