Joomla Tips – Remove Whitespace Beside Logo in Beez_20 Template

by Elaine on April 18, 2011

Joomla TipsJoomla 1.6 template – Beez_20 is easy to configure.    You can basically change the layout of the Beez_20 template by modifying the Joomla 1.6 template css file.  For example you can reduce or remove the margins or borders of your Beez20 template by modifying the personal.css file.   Remember to make a backup of your personal.css file in case you change/remove code accidentally.  Below are steps to remove the whitespace/margins/border on the right and left side of the Beez_20 Joomla 1.6 template.

1.  Login to your file server backend or FTP server

2.  Edit the file ‘templates/beez_20/css/personal.css’

3.  Change this line:


.logoheader {
background: url(“../images/personal/personal2.png”) no-repeat scroll right bottom #0C1A3E;
color: #FFFFFF;
margin: 0 10px 0 !important;
min-height: 200px;


.logoheader {
background: url(“../images/personal/personal2.png”) no-repeat scroll right bottom #0C1A3E;
color: #FFFFFF;
min-height: 200px;

After you save your personal.css file and refresh your Joomla 1.6 website, you should see that your template now is full width with no margins or padding on the side.

Hi Elaine,

Glad I found this article; it’s very useful! I’m just starting to build my website with Joomla! and have dropped in my logo over the header image.

I’m now trying to remove the white space beside the logo in the Beez 20 template and am trying to follow your instructions about editing the code in the template. However, when I go into the templates directory for Beez20 to edit the HTML coding (I’m using Joomla 1.7), it won’t let me edit the code. Not sure what to do now….

The header looks crappy with the white space padding beside my logo.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Dean Askin

which exactly white space are you talking about?
a screenshot would really be helpful.
I cant remove the upper whitespace with font sizes and other stuff, is that the one you are talking about?

I found a post which shows how to delete the logo from all pages except the front page of your site.
I’m using joomla 2.5.11 with the beez 20 template
My question is how do I eliminate the logo space on the articles pages or how do I add a different logo in it’s place for the article pages? I am sorry to bother you but I can’t find anyone that can help me and I came across this site, the code from a post I found was for the beez 5 template but it did the trick to remove the logo but in my article pages, but I still have the big space,and I’d like to either remove the space or be able to add another image in it’s place, Thank you for any help or direction you can offer me I really appreciate your time and consideration

Hi Kelly,
Sorry I didn’t see your comment earlier. Did you get your problem resolved? Can you send me your site url? Did you look at this tutorial, here, on how to change the site logo?
