Decreasing Section Padding Squarespace 7.1

Recommended Posts

I am using Squarespace 7.1 and need to remove vertical padding from sections - i.e. where sections join other sections. I imagine I'm not the only one thinking there is too much white space as a default and I can't find a way to remove it. 

Any ideas? I'm a new squarespace user and unfamiliar with custom css but will go down that road if needed.

First click on the little pencil to edit the block...


Then use the section height tool to adjust the section height....


I hope this helps.

Thank you both for taking the time to try to help me. Unfortunately I can't share the site link yet as it is password protected and I don't have permission from the organisation it is for. I tried to adjust the section height to go as small as possible but there is still too much white space for my liking. I am using for the home page text overlaid on a background image, followed by a section containing blog posts displayed as a carousel, followed by a footer. I want to reduce the white space between the carousel and the image (on top) and footer (on bottom).  I'll keep playing around with this:) Thanks again.

There is a min-height of 33vh set on sections. You need to override that to get the sections smaller. 

For all sections this would be:

.page-section {
    min-height: 0 !important;

For a specific section you need to specify the data-section-id that can be found by inspecting the page code using your browser's developer tools.

Somethig like this:

.page-section[data-section-id="5d979fd8590a832f3c411579"] {
    min-height: 0 !important;

Hi Colin, 

This CSS isn't working on my site. I've DM'd you details.

Does is have something to do with "MagicPaddingController"?

Any ideas on what else I can try? Thank you 🙂
