    we are using GoogleChrome 1.0.4 theme and the header is to high for our liking causing it to be crossed with the line from the theme. we would like to shift it down...

    Thanks.

    I was able to see your header in the correct place by making a CSS adjustment. edit file screen.css

    find this on line 75

    .container {
      margin:0 auto;
      width:950px;
    }

    try changing it to this - you can adjust the -16px to your liking. It adjusts the top margin of your main site contents

    .container {
      margin: -16px auto 0;
      width: 950px;
    }

    I'm assuming I had to go under theme editor and then edit the stylesheet css form? I couldn't find exactly where this was... also it says that i need to make this file writable before I can change anything... how do I go about doing this?

    Thanks!

    Yes, edit the stylesheet CSS.

    You have to modify the file permissions to make it writeable. One way to do that is in your website control panel using the file manager. The way to do it varies per host.

    If you know how to set it up, a better approach is to use FTP instead of the theme editor.

    Here is a codex page on setting up a free FTP program. (You can change the file permissions in the FTP program if that proves necessary but it usually doesn't)
