So this would be based on your CSS values. I would recommend using your browser's inspector tools and seeing which elements are different and adjust your templates accordingly. Shouldn't take too long to identify what the issue is and you can actually use the inspector tools to change your padding/margins for the element on the fly.
I'm pretty new to the theme aspect of Jive so bear with me -
Isn't the CSS established within the customized .soy and .ftl files?
If yes, then they are the same for both sites (I exported from site 1, imported on site 2). I also manually checked each of those files against both sites, and they're the same.
I tried inspecting the page itself with chromes developer tools, and the css definitely shows some inconsistencies, but then that is strange to me as well - why if the same theme is in use on 2 sites is the css different.
(It's possible I lack a fundamental understanding of CSS).
the most obvious thing i can see is something is screwing with the padding on the 2nd site that you copied. open the first site with the inspector tools and see if the values for the padding or the margin are the same as the 2nd site.

I tried looking at it with inspector, but wasn't clear on what the differences were (despite them clearly existing).
Found out I had an extra .soy file in the theme that shouldn't have been there, and after removing it, the spacing was corrected.
Wish I understood how to utilize the inspector to have found that out... but glad to have spotted it either way.
Thanks for the input everyone.
