    Hi,

    I chose to use GP premium for my 1st site due to it’s it’s speed, simple customisations and ‘ease’. If I can a simple custom home-page, page / post layout configured within the ‘trial period’, that will give me the confidence to continue beyond the trial period (so I hope you can help me achieve this).

    Here’s the 1st problem I’ve encountered whilst creating the layout for my page. There is a large padding above and below my page title. How can I minimise the gap? Please see picture:

    Another quick question. I’ve hidden my site from the public / search crawlers as Im afraid Google may penalise a site that’s under construction. Is this good practice for site designers? If so, how long should I keep my site hidden? Until I have a few pages and posts?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi there,

    First place to check is Customizer > Typography > Headings and check the Heading 1 (H1) or Single Content Title (H1) line height.
    If not any chance you can provide me a link and temporary password to view the site so i can see what the issue is?

    Yeah good practice to keep the site from being crawled until you’re happy with the initial content. How long is up to you. Before ‘launching’ i would make sure that any static pages are in place, the main design is completed and there is at least one post ( but more would be preferable ). The thing to be mindful of, is to minimize any significant changes to design, links or content after the site is first crawled, as re-crawling the site for changes may not happen immediately.

    Thank you for the speedy response!

    I applied the recommended change. It worked a little. I then explored the content tab and stumbled upon, ‘Content seperator’ whereby I was able to control the space. Thank you David (and a hearty thanks for your answer to my 2nd Q, along with the sound follow-up advice). May I keep this thread open in case I need more help during my initial start phase?
