Reduce padding above & below gallery blocks

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I want to reduce the padding between my single column and double column gallery grids, as they are currently set to a default that looks to be around 57px at full width (1440px - see attached screenshot). Ideally I want to reduce this padding to 20px top & bottom. 

I have found various custom CSS solutions on forums already and have tried the following but they haven't worked:

/* gallery padding */
.gallery-block {
    padding-top: 20px;
    padding-bottom: 20px;
/* gallery padding */
.gallery-block {
    padding-top: 20px !important;
    padding-bottom: 20px !important;

I managed to do it by editing each individual div within chrome's inspect tool (https://tppr.me/oRbaT) but can't seem to add the correct custom CSS to properly reduce the padding in Squarespace. 

Any suggestions you have would be much appreciated!!

Hi @LauChalk that padding is coming from the site padding for each section, this Custom CSS should help:

.gallery-grid[data-width="full"] {
    padding-top: 1vw;
    padding-bottom: 1vw;

Hope that works for you!
