how to override squarespace default margin

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.foilrar.org/newsletters_new


On my webpage - https://www.foilrar.org/newsletters_new - which is completely created using  

code block, many elements have default margin and/or padding space. I believe it is the squarespace

default. Is not there a way to override these default margins/padding ? I have attached example H1 

element and the margin around it pointed by arrow with the browser inspect mode.

Any help/guidance is highly appreciated.

You can override the default text padding/margin settings by applying some adjustments in the Custom CSS tab. In your case, you can apply the same padding and margin settings by targeting all basic text elements. This should remove most of the "space" between your elements.

h1, h2, h3, h4, p {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;

Hope this helps!

I see the site has some problems. Do you want to fix these?

Site URL – https://www.foilrar.org/

1. (Mobile-Homepage) the site doesn’t look good.


2. (Mobile-Homepage) Text very long. Want to change to 1 item/row?


3. (Tablet-Footer) Reduce text size?


4. (Mobile-Blog posts) Want to add Prev/Next text next to arrows?

I am sorry Tuanphan. I just saw your suggestions. I am a volunteer working on community website.

I would like to go through your suggestions. Are you suggesting to add < and > buttons to reduce text on this page. By clicking < and > , user can view previous or next page. 


Thanks ,
