    Gap below OPs

    Hi,
    I notice there's a grey gap of about a few inches width below an OP.
    I was about to answer posts a few times since it seemed there were no replies, but when I scroll down further, they appear.
    Is it necessary to keep this annoying gap there?

    I can't replicate this. The first response appears pretty much directly below post #1 on every thread I've just checked.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Which OS and browser are you using? I don't see this.

    I'm using Google Chrome on Windows 10. Here's a screen shot of this page.
    It's never happened before a few days ago, and I haven't changed my setup.

    I get the same thing in Chrome for Android.
    I am not a teacher.

    Same here. The gap appears below the first post on every page, not only below the OP.

    It doesn't appear on Chrome on my MacBook, if that helps with the investigation.

    I don't get it on Chrome on Linux, so it may be a Chrome on Windows issue- let's see if we can fix it. We have a few Chrome display issues before.

    Re: Gap below OPs

    I'll look into it
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: Gap below OPs

    Right, I believe this should be resolved now.

    The gap was caused because I moved the old banner ad which used to be at the very top of thread pages into a location just after the first post. This was meant to only display for unregistered users but was actually showing for registered members too. I think the ad should now only show for users who've not logged in or who only have made one post. Let me know if you still have an issue.
