    Hallo!
    Today a big white rectangle has appeared on my blog. I don’t know how to get rid of it. My blog’s start page looks terrible now. I have tried to display it on several computers and it is always the same. Would you be so kind and help me with it?
    Thank you in advance.

    The blog I need help with is kosipiotr.wordpress.com.

    That’s the placeholder for the slideshow of the theme. You populate it by uploading images via the Add Media tool of the posts that show on your homepage. You deactivate it in Appearance > Theme Options.
    See my intro to the theme too:

    I have followed your instructions posted on your site and put this line into the “Welcome Message Content”:
    <img style=”margin-left:-.75em;” src=”IMAGE URL HERE” />
    with transparent png file, beceause i have needed some space under the title message.
    Everything works fine:))

    You’re welcome!

    Since you don’t really want to display an image, then instead of the workaround you invented you could add the same amount of padding to the text:
    <div style="padding-bottom:300px;">YOUR MESSAGE HERE</div>

    I add this command line and it works fine, it is a better idea. Your help is really great for me. Thank you and have a nice day!

    how do you delete welcome message all together?

    because even when i type my message theres still a giant white space under it, like as if i typed above it not in it.
    & if i try to put a image in it, its the same thing. image then same size white space under it.

    The giant white space isn’t the welcome message, it’s the placeholder for the ML slideshow. Read my original reply above please.
