Able Theme Widget Spacing Not Consistent?

    Hello,

    For a while now I have noticed that unlike most themes, the spacing between some widgets on the Able theme is not consistent (I checked in the latest Firefox & Internet Explorer), with some widgets having more spacing between them than others; which wastes space in the sidebar and it makes the sidebar look less consistent/even/uniform.

    Are there any plans on adjusting/fixing this so that the spacing between all widgets in the Able theme match/are even/are consistent or is this part of the style/design?

    Instead of screenshots of the spacing between every widget, one could just look at my blog for a few examples, I am not using all the WordPress.com widgets but I am using several widget which shows inconsistency between the spacing of some widgets like: RSS Links, Akismet Widget, maybe a few others, and there could be more if one tests all the WordPress.com widgets.

    Thank you,
    -John Jr

    I am just curious if the moderator/staff/whoever who removed the modlook tag, has an answer to my question or not so I can know if someone is researching the answer or not since there is no alert or anything to let you know when/how the modlook tag is removed so you do not know if a moderator/staff person is looking into your question or not which can cause confusion not knowing what is going on or not?

    This could happen regardless of your theme. Every widget is different and therefore has different spacing. You can control the appearance of your blog with a Custom Design upgrade, if you’re experienced with CSS:

    If this can happen regardless of theme, why do most themes that I have tested seem to not have this problem then, I am just curious?

    Thank you for responding.

    @goodjohnjr,

    I see what you mean. There seems to be inconsistent spacing between widgets and this is a theme specific issue. I file a ticket about this issue. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    It will not be closed until after the month ends. You can always create a new thread if it has not been resolved by then.

    Good, I just wanted to make sure that no one forgot about it, I can wait another month or however long it takes as long as I know that someone is going to fix it and/or remembers the bug ;) ; thank you for checking into that for me Jackiedana. :)
