  • Go into your style.css file and change the padding-top and padding-left values in the following code block…

    .header-title {
    font-family: “Times New Roman”, Times, serif;
    padding-top: 100px; Set to padding-top: 20px;
    padding-left:115px; Set to padding-left: 50px;

    Or similar values 🙂



    It should be real easy, and you might be able to do it yourself.

    1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Editor.
    2. On the right-hand list, find style.css
    3. Look for a section that starts with .header-title
    4. It has an attribute called “padding-left” which is set at 115px. This is what’s shifting it to the left. You can change it’s position by changing the padding, using padding-top, padding-right, padding-bottom, and padding-left. (<i>Full disclosure: I personally prefer margin over padding, but might as well stick with what your designer used)
