Not sure if this is the place to ask or not. I am willing to pay for help too.

I am trying to configure some columns for the content on my wordpress home page. I have a column plugin I used on my test page and it works except that there is to much space above and below the columns. I have tried everything using firebug to help me (except the right thing)

If i cannot fix it as is then I would like to do away with the column plugin and have it all styled in css so that I can change it and modify it in the future.

any way.
this is my website and this is the test site where i am using the columns plugin.

thanks for any help. guidance, suggestions

Are you talking about the columns of bullet points?

If so, are you adding in the empty paragraphs or is the plugin doing it?

It will almost certainly be the plugin at fault, few plugins are well written.

the columns plugin. 'The' ? what column plugin?

edit// answered my own question 'WP-Ez-Columns'

Looking at the plugin suggests that it is probably a consequence of the way the wysiwyg editor in WP works that accounts for the empty paragraphs; go back and check your double spacing and general post content in html view.

I got rid of the column plugin and coded it all myself with html=css.

Well far better to create a

Well far better to create a series of page templates that can be marked up in a variety of ways and available to posts pages than adding another plugin to further drag down WP that is really designed for non coders to use.
