I am using the new vanilla comments on wordpress with my self hosted vanilla forums, but on every page, there is unnecesary iframe space. I was wondering how to fix that. My site is here and my forums are here. Between the submit comment and comments by vanilla link.

Link to your forums is incorrect. – Travis Pflanz Apr 18 '12 at 4:00

The frame element has a height of 1000px. I am not sure which file generates the comment form, but the height seems to be in that file. Simply delete height=1000px to remove the space.

Also, if you want to remove the Vanilla credit and link, add .vanilla-credit {display:none !important} to your style sheet.


I believe you are referring to the large space between the bottom of your post and the "Leave Comments" title to the comment textarea.

If so, there is a pretty large bottom margin in the .post class in your style sheet. You can remove it by changing it to margin:0

no, the "post comment" and "comments by vanilla link", but what you stated can come in handy on a future project – Caio Apr 18 '12 at 4:31
I updated my answer above. – Travis Pflanz Apr 18 '12 at 4:46
Thank you! I changed it to a more sensible 600px. – Caio Apr 18 '12 at 14:58
