How to get rid of padding around header image in Twenty Twelve theme (9 posts)

    I've been trying to get rid of the padding around the header image on the Twenty Twelve theme so that it stays flush with the site top, left, and right. I tried a bunch of different options and I managed to get rid of it on the top, but can't seem to get rid of it on the left and right sides.

    Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I don't see a header image on the demo Twenty Twelve theme, could you provide a link to your website demonstrating this?

    Thank you! However, I did try that one but for some reason can't affect the right side of it. I found that to be the common issue with most of the methods I've tried. The right side doesn't seem to take. The header image is the same width as the site, so not sure why it's doing this.

    Here's what it looks like

    I think the issue you're experiencing will resolve if you use the Custom CSS section of the dashboard, provided by Twenty Twelve.

    Thanks, but I'm not sure how. I've been editing the style sheet, is there another file, I should be looking at? Sorry, I'm new this.

    I'd make changes externally, either from within a Child Theme or Custom CSS plugin. If you don't have a Custom CSS plugin, try this one out.

    The theme, Twenty Twelve will likely experience frequent updates. Updates just mean a new copy of your theme's files will replace your current files. So, any changes made to the theme's files will be erased.
