The e-commerce.

gap above header help required


Recommended Posts

hi all,


can anyone please help...i have installed my first oscommerce and pretty much have it configured and customised how I want it with the exception of one thing.


My main website has all of its margins set to 0 in its CSS using the following:


body {

margin-left: 0px;

margin-top: 0px;

margin-right: 0px;

margin-bottom: 0px;



However, I tried adding this within the stylesheet.css (where there is already margin: 0px; in the body code) but I still get a small gap running along the top of the webpage, as shown below:




These are the first few lines of code:




<body marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" topmargin="0" bottommargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0">


<div align="center">

<table width="810">


<td bgcolor="White">


<!-- header //-->

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">

<tr class="header">




Can someone please tell me why this would still be appearing, and how I can get rid of it so that the header sits flush? I have my OScommerce running in a table with a fixed width of 810, but thats the only major thing Ive changed with regards to the containing layout. Could it be cell padding or spacing somewhere?

it's this:


<table width="810">


the default cellpadding is 2 I believe. Set cellspacing/cellpadding just like in the table a few lines below, and it should be fixed.
