    Now that that's done it reminds me of the reason I removed text from that field in the first place, which is that the Hemingway theme places a seriously ugly black box in the center of the header. The only way I found to get rid off it was to remove the copy. Maybe there's a another way?

    Check it out.

    Yes, my version of the site has text in the fields but i used the “visibility: hidden;” attribute to make it invisible. Now if you can just get your CSS to take your problem will be solved.

    Copy the code below again. Put it in again and be sure to save it again. Hey update file twice, cant hurt. Yes its redundant but I just don’t have any idea why the CSS is not getting output.

    .blog-info {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #1D1D1D;
    display: inline-block;
    padding: 30px;
    visibility: hidden;
    }
    .section {
    padding: 12% 0;
    position: relative;
    }

    Michael, WTF? Guess what. It took and the black box is gone too. (I don't care to know why that box is gone!)

    I have other nasty things to get handled on the site but frankly, this was important because it sets the tone. Anyway, I've been on the other side, helping with photography and photoshop. Which brings me to saying if you have a retouching issue or need something done, send it my way. Glad to help.

    You'll probably find me asking other questions here. Chime in if you feel like it of course, but either way, thanks very much.

    Ken

    Ha, no worries.

    the black box is gone because the CSS in place tells the box to be invisible. Its still there its just 100% transparent.

    I'll keep that in mind. I'm a graphic designer by trade and have been editing photos for a living since 2007, but if run into a problem ill be sure to get in touch.

    Best of luck.

    Hi all. I've found this post and a few others with the same issue. I've tried about 5 different solutions including the one from the author Anders Noren. I currently have a Coming soon plugin as didn't want to make the site live yet until I could figure this out. I can send you a screen shot but its typical black box around the title. Any other suggestions? I've seen a few other posts with "site branding" but that is nowhere in the current update CSS... Thanks

    I only wish I had the knowledge to answer this post intelligently but the fact is that although like what my header has become, entirely based on my design, I did not do the theme manipulation, I had some else look at it. If looking at the source code will help you see the light great.

    On the issue of changing themes too much, I fear that down the road I could be screwed.
    More than one person has mentioned that when themes are updated you can lose all the changes. I'll cross that bridge eventually.
