Support » Themes and Templates » header size – Pinnboard

  • Hi there,

    I’m trying hard to change my header height in my Pinnboard theme, but I just don’t get it done.

    I tried it with

    #header {
    	border-top:#111 3px solid;
    	height: 200px;

    as well as
    #custom_header {
    height: 200px;

    in the style.css but it won’t work.

    Is there a difference between Pinboard and other themes I forgot ?

    Thanks a lot !

    Without seeing your site, it’s almost impossible to answer this kind of question. Are you using Firebug to identify and test CSS changes?

    Ok, sry.
    That’s then that:

    I’ve Firebug but I don’t know how I benefit from it bc it shows me (of course) only the HTML code…

    I don’t think height is what you are after — the large space above and below your header text is being set by the line-height in this CSS:

    #site-title, #site-description {
        float: left;
        font-weight: 300;
        line-height: 150px;
        margin: 0;

    BUT do NOT make any changes to your theme files — you need to create a Child Theme or use a custom CSS option or plug-in. Otherwise, all your changes will be erased when the theme is updated.

    Do read up on using Firebug — it shows you all the CSS code — which is what you need to use to make changes.

    First: That’s it ! Thanks !

    Err… Too late I think …

    But there is no auto-update function, or anything ? So as long I don’t update, that’s fine ?

    Ok, I will read the firebug doc.
    Thanks for all those tips !
