    Hello, Thanks for the theme. I have a couple of very short questions regarding the header. Firstly my website is http://www.smallbusinesssoftwareguide.com/
    1. The section where the small business software guide logo is how can I make the height of the white space smaller
    2. How can I get rid of that space entirely
    3. How can I reduce the size of the logo and put it before home on the top menu. So the top menu will be LOGO>HOME>ITEM1>ITEM2>
    4. How can I increase the height of the top menu
    5. The loading speed seems to be slow, do you have any recommendations which you have found effective plugins etc to speed up lodaing time. I already use wp page cahce and wp minify. I need to reduce the number of http requests what is the best way to do with this theme.

    Thank you in advanced

    Hi,
    1.By default Hueman theme is using 2 paddings in logo section:
    #header .pad { padding-top: 28px; padding-bottom: 30px; }
    So if you want to make "white space smaller", reduce pixels.
    2.If you want to get read of it completely:
    #header .pad { padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px;}
    .site-title {padding: 0px;)
    3- You can't - top menu and and logo cannot be in the same level.
    If you want this - consider removing top menu and showing as middle (this option is under "Appearance"->"Menus" - check proper box.
    Then Logo will move up. Or consider changing theme.
    4 - By default, top menu height is 51px.
    If you want for example to double it, try this:
    #header .container-inner {padding-top: 102px;}

    All CSS modifications should be done in child theme only (otherwise you loose modifications with next theme upgrade) - explained many times on this support forum - do some research.

    5. Theme by itself is well written and relative fast - speed depends on web-host also, how many plugins you have etc - too wide for this forum (does not depends on theme itself.

    Hope this helps (I'm not theme author, but love it, and did a lot of modifications).
    If so - PLS close the topic.
    Cheers, Mike.

    Sorry - point 4. - menu height is not correct.
    If you really need it, I'll find proper CSS modification.
    All the rest remains.

    Thansk for your suggestions here is the feedback

    1.By default Hueman theme is using 2 paddings in logo section:
    #header .pad { padding-top: 28px; padding-bottom: 30px; }
    So if you want to make "white space smaller", reduce pixels.
    ---DID NOT WORK
    2.If you want to get read of it completely:
    #header .pad { padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px;}
    .site-title {padding: 0px;)
    ---DID NOT WORK

    3- You can't - top menu and and logo cannot be in the same level.
    If you want this - consider removing top menu and showing as middle (this option is under "Appearance"->"Menus" - check proper box.
    Then Logo will move up. Or consider changing theme.
    -- ONLY REMOVES TOP MENU TO BELOW LOGO..NO LONGER STATIC AS WELL

    4 - By default, top menu height is 51px.
    If you want for example to double it, try this:
    #header .container-inner {padding-top: 102px;}

    ---- THIS WORKS IT SEEMS TO ADD THE NUMBER OF PIXELS SPECIFIED TO EXISTING..PLEASE DO YOU KNOW HOW THE TEXT SIZE BE INCREASED AND ALIGNED

    5. Theme by itself is well written and relative fast - speed depends on web-host also, how many plugins you have etc - too wide for this forum (does not depends on theme itself.

    ---- ABOUT 7 BASIC PLUGINS, TWO FOR OPTIMISE

    Hi,
    OK, maybe some of my explanations were not precise enough.
    Last website where I used Hueman theme with a lot of modifications is orangefreesounds.com - different concept - I uploaded "Header Image" ("Theme Optins"->"Header"->"Header Image") - 1205x206 pix
    This overrides header title/logo and description.
    You used "Custom Logo" instead, with 427X160 px sbsg_v2_160.png - sligltly different approach + topbar menu (without descripitom - it is part where you can put slogan text- appears on the righ of lthe logo)
    Now I'll make similar "scenario" on local XAMPP instalation.
    1- This ABSOLUTELY WORKS:
    #header .pad { padding-top: 28px; padding-bottom: 30px; } -default values
    to change add this:
    #header .pad { padding-top: 0x; padding-bottom: 0px; }
    -no paddings in nav.group.pad - the logo moves up, almost "hits" the topbar menu
    2- few remaining px are around logo
    .site-title (logo) - has by default top+bottom padding of 10 px
    If you want to remove this 20 px (again)
    .site-title {padding: 0px;}
    If 1 and 2 does not work
    -consider if you are using child theme correctly
    - is your CSS correct (just copy & paste my lines in Themes"->"Editor")
    3 - you have 3 menus
    A- top ("Topbar")
    B -middle ("Header" - bit strange defnition)
    C-footer
    You can check all 3 of them (everything is controlled from "Appearance"->"Menus" with check boxes
    So - try using all 3, and decide what you want (if you turn of topbar- you loose "search" box in header) - it's really up to you
    4- if you decide to use topbar menu - PLS dont add pixels, height (with paddings as I first suggested) etc. This requires deeper understanding of Hueman theme + additional knowledge of CSS.

    Yes, I know how to change and align text size in topbar menu :
    - read carefully post from this forum http://wordpress.org/support/topic/topbar-menu-font-size - you have also some additional info
    - also, post by Alx, theme author http://wordpress.org/support/topic/top-menu-bar-2
    5- Optimization of WP sites is whole different and complicated stuff.
    I have more plugins on above mentioned site than you - and will optimize it further regarding speed- but this forum is for Hueman Theme
    support.
    -consider looking for developer on some other forum - for site speed etc
    -read more carefully posts existing here - you will find more solutions than you expect
    -if this is adequate - PLS mark post as "resolved"
    Cheers,
    -Mike-

    Hello I have seen your site http://www.orangefreesounds.com/ Using that as a reference is there a way to reduce the height where it says "we make orange sounds" and also make it fixed static. I am trying to acheieve something like this http://mashable.com/ a top menu with logo and fixed

    Hi onewd2wd,
    mashable.com is not made in WP.
    -Topbar menu (I haven't used it on my website) - my jpg is in above mentioned dimensions - if you make jpg smaller - you will get more "space"
    Maybe plugin that siprof suggest helps - I never tried it.
    I am still willing to help, but I don't understand what you really want to achieve in Hueman theme
    -"to reduce the height where it says "we make orange sounds" and also make it fixed static" - what is "fixed static"?
    But - I pointed out - in Hueman theme - it is NOT POSSIBLE to have logo in same level as topbar menu.
    It can be below, not aligned.
    Maybe I'm wrong - but that's all I know (and you saw I did a lot of CSS & PhP modifications on my website).
    Suggestion: try using Mozilla Firefox - Firebug plugin - analyze theme structure etc - than you will see things more clear.
    Good luck

    Mashable has a specific menu - you cannot produce it in Hueman theme only - without using additional plugin (maybe 1 mentioned by siprof)
    Your welcomed, tried my best - if you find right solution, PLS write it here.

    Hi Mike Orange,

    I have read your message in this topic. I want to reduce the padding top and bottom. I tried your method and it's not working for me too..

    Hi guys & girls (excluding Mr. "siprof"),
    1- Don't want to waste my time & energy on this thread anymore - sick when I see what is written above.
    2-Do you know anything about CSS (not to mention PhP- not necessary in this case)?
    3-Do you know anything about child themes in WP?
    3-If "yes" - are you doing it properly?
    4-Easiest thing is to appear on forum and cry -"doe's not work" -"onewd2wd " -sorry that I posted any reply - it's "pearls before ..." - if you like mashable menu, go... make it in WP
    5-All I wrote above WORKS -but 1 condition -that you know how to apply it.
    6-If you don't know- good suggestion is http://www.w3schools.com/
    7- If you want to learn something more than you know - learn something before you ask - or at least after advice is given.
    8- If no (looking for ready made solutions)- hire developer & coder - I am the one amongst many - but on this forum I do it free & for fun & support Hueman theme - 'cause I appreciate the author, giving free premium theme + support.
    9-My profile - lot of folks said "thanks"(in 2 weeks) -for solved issues - some I didn't solved, most resolved.
    10 - Mr/Ms http://wordpress.org/support/profile/onewd2wd -opened account couple days before - asking questions like "How can I reduce the size of the logo and put it before home on the top menu. So the top menu will be LOGO>HOME>ITEM1>ITEM2>" - really?

    Wish you all the best - keep on askin' - consider this thread closed. At least, for me.

    Hi Mike Orange,

    Don't describe yourself as a good member of the community because your behaviour is just sad.

    You don't help anyone with this type of comment. You do have time to lose to write that.

    If you are tired to answer, leave real pedagogic members talking. To know how to teach is not well for everybody.

    Of course I know about CSS and I have tried all here. I'm not a geek I'm business man and I have many wordpress websites.

    So sorry to disturb you big Mike Orange.

    Best regards

    @webdomtom.fr,
    honestly, I overreacted in last post (if you see all things what I wrote above before it).
    You "dropped" in thread - and I was real tired of explaining all above.
    It was not addressed to you also - obviously.
    Never tried to be "big Mike Orange" - too old & experienced to have pleasure of making "fun" like that (you can see it from my posts).
    So, my apologies - if it makes any sense.
    btw, saw you opened http://wordpress.org/support/topic/padding-bottom-and-up-any-topic-works/ - you have different kind of problem, a static home page (not "classic" blog page).
    I'll write possible solution there - but not in this thread, sick of it.
    Best regards
