Reduce gap below captions & next section in Slideshow: Reel 7.1

Recommended Posts


I've found that when displaying captions underneath a gallery block with slideshow: reel (in Squarespace 7.1), it creates a huge empty gap underneath, before the next section begins. If you remove captions the next section starts immediately under the gallery block.

I'm looking to find a way through custom css (I assume is the only way here), to have this dead-space reduced as much as possible, I've attached an example of the issue both in desktop and mobile view (which highlights the issue even more).

If anyone can help out, please let me know!

Thank you!
