    Hi,

    I need help removing the extra wide gray space on top of my site's header. I've scoured all resources and tried their suggestions but nothing seem to work for me. Please help. The link is http://www.philippinechronicle.com

    It looks like in the switcher.css file, on the first line, is this:

    body {
    margin-top: 240px !important;
    font-size: 16px !important;
    }

    You need to delete that margin-top.

    it seems you are running a bad copy of a premium theme;

    commercial themes are not supported by this forum - try and contact the theme's seller or author.

    Hi cassihl, would you know where I should find the switcher file? Coz I do not see it anywhere my styles folder or anywhere in my files. I am assuming there is a code like this that creates that extra annoying space above my header but please tell me how i could delete it. thank you.

    Hi alchymyth, thanks for the good suggestion. you're right, it could be the theme but i was just exploring all possibilities that maybe i could resolve it without waiting for the theme developers using an idea from wordpress folks. I just bought the theme and it takes awhile (4-6 weeks) before they provide access to the theme's own forums which I'm not sure why.

    Here's the full link: http://www.gabfirethemes.com/demos/theme-switcher/switcher.css It does look like a problem with the theme. It looks like you're reference files from the theme's demo.

    Ok, so you mean there is no way I can delete this from my files since it is calling the code directly from the demo? Are you sure there is no other way? Surely there should be a way to delete this. Please help.

    In your header, try deleting this line:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.gabfirethemes.com/demos/theme-switcher/switcher.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    I honestly have no idea. I'm not sure why it was there to begin with. It looks like it was used by the developers in their demo version of the theme, so I don't think it's necessary at all.

    thank you so much for your assistance. in a way, i am relieved now. nothing seems to be affected by the removal of the switcher code so far. this is resolved. i appreciate everything you did to help me.
