    Don’t edit the Twenty Ten theme! Your changes will be over-written the next time you upgrade WordPress or the theme. For this reason, it is recommended that you consider creating a child theme for your customisations.

    Once your child theme is up & running, you can edit the child’s CSS or create a customised copy of the header.php template file in the child theme.




    Thanks for the reply! I have to admit I am a bit new at wordpress and CSS. Could you please explain what a child theme is and how to create one?

    If you want to edit the twentyten theme, make a copy of it in a folder with a different name so that when you upgrade WordPress you don’t automatically replace your edited theme.

    Someone else has also been asking how to remove the space at the top. Seems like it may be caused by the head profile.

    try changing <head profile="">

    to just <head> in the header.php and see if that helps.

    I shudder to think about where I would be if someone had told me to never edit the Default theme. I say edit away! Just give your theme a new folder so that when you upgrade WP your new version of the theme doesn’t get replaced.
