Home Forums Support Can’t eliminate bottom margin in container

    I have two containers near the bottom of my front page, which each display excess unwanted bottom margin (or padding, or somthing similar). I have done everything I possibly can do to fix this, and nothing works.

    This is a staging site, being moved over from Elementor, and it’s incomplete and not great-looking. But this problem is making me crazy.

    I will include credentials to login to the site, and details, in the private area below.

    Hi Howard,

    You’re using a WP Group Block to “group” the Blocks in that section. This WordPress core Block has a default margin-bottom.

    It would be best to use a GenerateBlocks Container Block instead, so that you have full control of the spacing.

    Hi Fernando,

    I understand what you’re saying, but I can’t see a Group block ANYWHERE on that page. Can you show me, or describe exactly where you see it?


    Customer Support

    I see. Can you provide temporary admin credentials, and I’ll take a closer look?

    I provided them in the private area in my original post.

    Right, sorry about that.

    You’re currently editing the Front Page, so I’m not able to view it. Let me know once you’re finished.


    Sorry, I’m out now. (Didn’t know that could be an issue.)

    Customer Support

    Thank you.

    Viewing your structure, you’re currently using a WordPress Columns Block which has a default bottom margin.

    Also, you’re using a WordPress Paragraph Block which also has a default bottom margin.

    I would recommend replacing the Columns Block with a GenerateBlocks Grid Block, and the Paragraph Block with a GenerateBlocks Headline Block for full control.

    You can turn a GB Headline Block to a Paragraph as well. See: https://docs.generateblocks.com/article/headline-overview/


    Thanks, Fernando – that worked!

    So for my future reference, is there a way in GP Pro (or WP itself) for me to modify the default margins for the Core Columns and Paragraph blocks? Are they defined by the theme? And if so, where?


    Customer Support

    They are default bottom-margin set through theme code. To override this, you can use custom CSS.

    For instance:

    body p {
        margin-bottom: 0;

    You may add this in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS.
