Assigned To

Demers, Scott

Brief Description


Detailed Description



Test with some lower level permissions. QA permission levels.


09/01/11: GN:  All layouts updated. Test pages created.

2 versions of each page are available at the following subsite.
Default version has Headline, Subheadline, Image, Image caption (where appropriate).
"Empty" versions have all of the above left blank.
QA should include:


  • visual confirmation of eliminated whitespace
  • use of code inspector to confirm absence of elements


  • ability to add/edit content in all pages

Attachment "whitespace-conditionals" contains the various forms of the solution.




0829/11: POC test pages.
Fix has been applied to 2 layouts for POT/POC testing.


verify the following in IE7, IE8, IE9, Chrome, FF:
1: anonymous user does not have empty space below page header (H2)
2: authenticated user is presented with a working subheadline (H3) field when editing page.




Instructions for implementing white space solution

1. make a copy of a 3 column layout
2. Apply solution to <h2>, <h3>, page image, and page image caption
3. test in all browsers
    -- Anonymously, White space is trimmed when not filled out
    -- Anonymously/logged in, all elements show up when they are filled out
4. Make a list of all relevant production layouts to receive the fix
5. Apply to all layouts
6. Create test plan for testing all fixes




Repro Steps If subhead is empty (<h3>) a &nbsp; is added creating a space between content and header


Demers, ScottNo presence information (10/31/2011 2:14 PM): Scott will do final testing and schedule for release
Demers, ScottNo presence information (10/21/2011 4:35 PM): Kirill or another intern will test this at low level permissions. When they've completed this, reassign to me.
New, GrahamNo presence information (9/30/2011 2:53 PM): For all example pages above now use "" instead of ""
Demers, ScottNo presence information (9/12/2011 6:24 PM): Graham will resolve any outstanding issues and then reassign to me.
Demers, ScottNo presence information (9/12/2011 2:15 PM): All that's left is a test. Kirill has finished testing and has coordinated with Graham. What final issues need to be resolved? What is the final list of layouts? Reassign to Scott so Graham can focus on other issues.
New, GrahamNo presence information (9/1/2011 3:10 PM): 09/01/11: GN: Requesting QA of applied solution see "09/01/11": entry above.
Fulbright, JeremyNo presence information (8/30/2011 4:21 PM): Currently being tested in h3, needs to be applied to all image in text controls in all major layouts.
New, GrahamNo presence information (8/29/2011 1:15 PM): Example provided was in a sectionhome layout, so I used that and a content2 for POT/POC.
If proven successful, the solution will need to be applied to other page elements such as images, image captions etc.
Demers, ScottNo presence information (8/18/2011 3:28 PM): test on text fields and image in 3 column layout. if this solution works, reassign to Graham to have it added in all layouts.
The solution to this issue is the same as this closed issue:

Johnsen, Bernie (8/11/2011 10:54 AM): This seems related:
Kulkarni, Shilpa (8/11/2011 10:15 AM): Tested the markups on SP2010 SP1 version and the markups solve the "non breaking space" issue.
Kulkarni, Shilpa (8/10/2011 11:01 AM): I have attached the code snippet with the ticket. It contains markups that should be inserted in Layout pages using SharePoint Designer.
Please note that the markups used are tested in current version of SP2010 and need to be tested on SP1 of SP2010.
