I think it got complicated with one of your plugins. I'm not good in the codes I only know html. Maybe you can try checking Postbit classic you might find a doubled code for status. About the space, I think it's possible, just do some experiment in the global.css look for "width" and do some experiment. Of course Make some backup before trying an experiment.
Hi, I have the same problem in netpen pro. Can you help me? Thanks.
