As the title suggests. This space isn't reclaimed even if you haven't put anything in it so all of my web part pages have a 2" thick white strip across the top of the middle of the page.
I have managed to remove the 3 lines where "welcome-content" is but strangely when I do so it works.. but when I try to edit the page the ribbon controls all get disabled! Whether this is a bug or a dependency I'm not sure.
Can anyone help please? thanks!
EDIT: Oh I give up trying to paste code into the browser! If you open a blank web part page in SP designer 2013 and go to line 31 it's this section I was referring to
<div class="welcome-content"> <PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField FieldName="PublishingPageContent" HasInitialFocus="True" MinimumEditHeight="5px" runat="server"/> </div>
