removing spacing above home page thumbnail slider

I have a site here http://www.kitchensofdenver.com/ and want to remove the extra spacing above the thumbnail slider so it's the space between the thumbnail slider and large slider.  What do I adjust in the css to achieve that?

body#home-featured #hr { min-height: 385px; }	

Open in new window


experiment with that

You could also replace <div id="hr"> with <div style="height:385px;'> in your html

You should probably start by fixing the 23 errors in the validator.  Then count the line feeds being stuck between the two elementw what what appear to be unnecessary divs.

If it is still not close enough then you try a negative top margin on the thumb slider. That is a hack I don't care for but at least it is valid.

I took me all of 15 seconds to put the page through the validator and discover the errors; but when you are busy I guess time is money, and maybe it is better to not know there are errors just itching to jump up and bite you..

This is going to be a little ugly.  The slider you are using has a min-height set on #hr and it's padding for extra space for navigation buttons at the bottom (I assume).  By changing the min-height you should be able to wipe out the whitespace but you would also need to find the CSS and HTML for the container used to hold the buttons and get rid of it.  Otherwise, simply changing the min-height will push the thumbnails off to one side as the containers collide.

Any chance of switching to a different slider that degrades a bit better when options are disabled or are we going to have to do it the hard way?

Doing it the hard way means I have to carve out the time to do it.  We're away from general knowledge which can easily be typed out and into development.  Test/retest/fail/rinse/repeat.
