  • I am using Fresh Ink Magazine theme. The Blog title pretty much overwrites the Blog tagline and I cannot seem to figure out how to put more space between the title and the tagline, nor how to make the tagline somewhat larger. I am a self-taught coder but totally new to php and WordPress. (I am migrating 5 blogs over from Typepad.)

    The code for the heading is this:
    <body <?php body_class(); ?>>
    <div id=”bgshadow”></div><div id=”wrapper”><div id=”container”> <div id=”top”><div id=”rssfeeds”>
    “> </div></div><div id=”middle”>
    <div id=”headimg”><div id=”shadow”></div>
    <div id=”blogtitle”><h2 align=”right”>
    <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></h2></div>
    <div id=”tag”>
    <?php bloginfo(‘description’); ?></div><!– end #tag –>

    <!– end #searchform –></div>
    <!– end #topg –>

    You can see hat I am talking about HERE. (Yes, I know I also have two search boxes and am not sure what that is about. One of them may have come over in the Typepad import?

    Thanks in advance for any help someone can give me!

    Add some top margin to #tag and then adjust the font size there as well (in style.css). I added the top margin declaration and just arbitrarily set it at 15px. You can adjust as you see fit. You could also add a font weight declaration set to bold if you plan on keeping the light grey color for the tagline.

    #tag {
        font-family: "Times New Roman",Times,serif;
        font-size: 14px;
        left: 127px;
        margin-top: 15px;
        position: absolute;
        top: 98px;

    Thank you so much! The padding worked but for some reason, no matter what I change the font size to it does not change in appearance; it just stays the same size.
    You can see what I am talking about HERE.

    I also cannot see anywhere what is causing the two search boxes! Every place that I know to look shows only one.

    It works for me on the font size using Firebug directly on your site. Try putting important after the font size like this.

    font-size: 18px !important;

    It appears the top search box is part of the theme. Remove the search widget from your sidebar.

    Thank you! That worked well. I changed the banner too because though I loved the swan the red water was just a little too bright. The words were getting lost in it.

    I have been amazed at how easily the Typepad posts all transferred over. Still have to move the photos over. They are coming from my Typepad library. Bit by bit.

    You are welcome.

    WordPress works pretty hard at making sure that importing goes well.
