We have removed the titles from our wordpress page but need a little help removing the large page space that exists from the verbiage on the page and the bottom of the header.

The theme we are using is Alexandria.

Are you assuming that we know what the page looks like without seeing it?

Post a link please.

For the padding in the page content:
in your CSS file (style.css)

.full-page-content-area {
width: 100%;
margin: 5% 0;
float: left;


.full-page-content-area {
width: 100%;
margin: 0;
float: left;

For the padding under your navigation:
in your CSS file (style.css)

.main-navigation {
padding: 1.5% 0;


.main-navigation {
padding: 0;
