  • you have to edit in your header.php of your theme. Search the ‘<div id=”contact_details”>’ in header.php and edit the email & phone number.

    Hi Arti, there is nothing in the Tagline box?

    possibly edit header.php, and look for:

    <div id="header_right">

    either, your data are shortly after that, or there is some code pointing to the source of your data.

    if you are stuck, paste the full code of header.php into a and post the link to it here – see

    Open the header file and edit it..

    Thank you Alchymyth i’ll have a look now.

    Shekhar – not helpful! Just because you can do it doesn’t mean everyone can, if I spilt paint all over your wool berber carpet would you no how to clean it? The difference between me and you is that I wouldn’t expect you to know how to clean it!!!!

    @nebj85 follow these steps:

    1. Login to
    2. Go to Appearance –> Themes –> editor
    3. Open your header.php file (clicking on it at-the-right side)
    4. On your web browser press CTRL+F key (single click on editing area)
    5. paste your Email Address, Phone number and search and edit those.

    Shekhar, that is better! Thank you very much i’ve done it. Appreciate your help.

    Now just to move the email address over to the left a bit, but don’t know if I can face that now.

    Shekhar is correct. I guess your designer just hardcoded the email address and Phone number. So you can change it follow Shekhar’s steps. If you need further help, please paste the content of your header.php to The codes you pasted is style.css that isn’t what we want.

    I know i realise that now codingpet, I couldn’t find header.php file, obvious now i’ve found it. Is it fairly simple to move the email address over to left a bit because it overlaps the telephone number, or is that something difficult?


    Search the ‘#email’ in style.css in your theme and can reduce the ‘width: 200px;’ and ‘padding-left: 71px;‘.

    @nebj85, at style.css line 165:

    #email {
    height: 28px;
    width: 200px;
    font-size: 12px;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 16px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    padding-left: 71px; <— change it
    padding-top: 27px;
    float: left;

    You will see these codes. Edit the padding or use margin to move email at bit left. But it seems okay…


    The email and phone icons are in the same background image, so it’s not a simple fix.

    1. You can edit the background image in photoshop if you have, just increase the space between the two icons.

    2. Then you can adjust the padding and width of #contact_details, #email and #phone slightly.

    This is the steps.

    n accordingly codingpet said edit background image of phone and email using Photoshop. Move and adjust them…

    Done, seriously guys thanks for the help. You wouldn’t know how long i’ve been wanting to do that but just couldn’t. Thanks
