How to Use the Blank Space Short Code

Please note that our Legacy Themes have been replaced by new Thrive Theme Builder Themes. While our Legacy Themes are still functional, we are no longer actively developing them. Check out this course to find out how to switch your site to Thrive Theme Builder.

In order to find out how you can now insert a gap or a blank space in the content, check out this article, about the "Background Section" element.

In the default WordPress editor, click on the Thrive Short Codes button and choose “Blank Space” from the drop down menu:


On click, it will immediately insert the short code in your content, with a default height value of “3em”. It will look like this:

[blank_space height='3em']

This short code will simply add a blank space or an empty gap in your content. You can adjust the height of this gap by changing the “3em” value in the short code. You can add a value either based in em, which is a measure based on the font size, or in px, which is a measure in absolute pixels. For example, you can create a space of exactly 100 pixels by adjusting the short code to look like this:

[blank_space height='100px']

The blank space short code is a great design element – whenever things look a bit too cramped on a page or you want to show off more of a nice background page section, simply insert some blank spaces to give your content more room to breathe.
