Removing spaces in checkbox lists in Providence

In Providence, it appears that in every checkbox list, there are 3 spaces in the label before the actual text--see code snippet:
<td> <input name="P224ObjectEditorForm_attribute_426_426_new_7" value="1094" type="checkbox" id="P224ObjectEditorForm_attribute_426_426_new_7"> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 7th</td>
Is the application producing them or the Providence theme? How can they be removed?



  • Not sure what would have produced those spaces, but you can edit the list item labels directly in Providence under Manage - Lists & Vocabularies.

  • They are not in the list item labels. Also, I have seen this on more than one providence instance that I manage. The application is writing the spaces--as far as I can tell.

  • Still, have not located the cause of these extra spaces--although they are all through the application if you search the source code. I can't tell which one is used when writing the checkbox code. It is not in the theme.

  • hey there--asking again. I cannot figure out why list values get 3 spaces after the checkbox in the metadata container.

  • This code is from list in the default install profile turned into a check box metadata field:

    <td><input name="P288ObjectEditorForm_attribute_38_38_new_0" value="187" type="checkbox" id="P288ObjectEditorForm_attribute_38_38_new_0"> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; video/avi</td>

  • Also part of radio lists too:
    <td><input name="P289ObjectEditorForm_attribute_41_41_new_0" value="179" id="P289ObjectEditorForm_attribute_41_41_new_0_1" type="radio"> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; text/cmd</td>

  • I think the issue is buried in here--line 337 or 345 of htmlFormHelpers.php:
    $vs_element = "<input name='{$ps_name}' {$vs_attr_string} type='checkbox'/>\n";
