Support » Fixing WordPress » Change position of website (make it absolute at top)

  • I have a website with lightword template.
    I already removed the header in the index file,
    but I also want to change the page to be in the absolute top.
    Nothing I change in style.css works!

    So in this website, I want to get rid of the green on top
    of the white (and beneath it).

    Help is really appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    I want to get rid of the green on top
    of the white

    imho, these are the styles that need changing (changes shown):

    #top_bar{ padding-top:18px; }
    (occurs both in style.css, and wider.css)

    #header{ height:59px; background-position: center bottom; }
    (in style.css)

    (and beneath it).

    do you mean the green at the bottom of the page? with the copyright, a few links, and the ‘to top’ button:

    (in style.css;
    this would get rid of the green and all the links …)

    Thanks for help, but no result so far.
    I tried all of it, but it doesn’t seem to affect any changes in the website. I already tried to change a lot of numbers, but nothing affects it!

    Als the change of the footer doesn’t work.
    It seems like it is overruled by something, what can it be?

    how do you make the changes to style.css and wider.css?

    there is nothing of the suggested changes to be seen in the stylesheets.

    are you aure you are editing the right files?


    Thanks for help but style.css and wider.css are adjusted, but no effect so far. Can you please check out what I’m doing wrong?
    Thanks very much!

    ‘dashboard’ ‘appearance’ ‘editor’ – select ‘wider.css’ and look for #top_bar

    if you still have
    then your changes are not saved in your theme.

    make double sure that you are editing the right files and that you save these files to the theme folder (on the server; either use ftp, if you edit the files locally on your computer; or press the ‘update file’ in the apperance editor) into their original postition.

    Thanks, but changes are saved, I checked it.
    But, the problem is, I work with rockmelt browser. Now I checked the site in Firefox and IE, and its a mess. Although I changed alle of the theme files back to the originals, it still is a mess!
    Is there anyway something has changed for example in mysql?
    I’m really buzzed here…

    So I have found that the problem was my computer, so the website is shown allright also in firefox, only IE has problem with applet.

    But so far no succes, editing both style and wider.css…

    try and add a !important to this style in style.css (it seems to be oberwritten by one in wider.css or one embedded style):

    #header{ height:59px; background-position: center bottom!important; }

    there are also some validation errors which might effect the display in a negative way (particular in InternetExplorer)

    Thanks for your reply alchymyth,
    the first suggestion didn´t work,
    and i´m really puzzled by the validation aspect.
    The doctypes and all are there, in the header,
    and I cant find any problems in the html so far,
    only IE doesnt love my frontpage banner, which is
    a problem…
