Hello, I have two questions I've been puzzling over for a few days.

I recently updated the Character infobox on my wikia with a simpler code, but it apparently causes a gap at the top of the page above the headquote and below the infobox itself, like so:

Example here.

I also tried to change the size of the font for the reflist, but no matter what I do, it appears to be the same size as the article's text. I used the directions here to change it, but the change never seemed to happen no matter how many times I refreshed my cache.

Example at same page here.

I am using Windows Vista and Chrome. The results are the same in Firefox.

Thank you very much in advance!

There was an excess line break in the template causing an additional paragraph to be added. It should work fine now. As for the references style - the code you added was OK, but you added it to the wrong style sheet. You should add it to MediaWiki:Wikia.css if you want it to affect the Wikia/Oasis skin. Common.css doesn't affect it. Sovq 14:32, May 2, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, gosh, I should have noticed that linebreak. And I see! I fixed it and placed it on the other page and it works perfectly now. Thank you very much for the help!

If you want the code to affect both skins, you can add it to MediaWiki:Common.css and add the following line to Wikia.css:
@import "/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Common.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css";

Thank you, I'll try that as well!

I have one last query, on the references again. Is it possible to justify the text? If so, where do I input the code? Thanks!

Adding text-align: justify; to the previously defined style rule should do the job. Replace:
.references-small { font-size: 85%;}
.references-small { font-size: 85%; text-align: justify;}
in the style sheet for the skin you want to alter (MediaWiki:Wikia.css for Oasis, MediaWiki:Common.css or MediaWiki:Monobook.css for Monobook). Sovq 12:57, May 3, 2012 (UTC)
Sweet, thanks muchly! --Steel Talk 16:26, May 3, 2012 (UTC)
