Support » Theme: Academica » Logo Overlaps Text

  • Hi, all,
    I’m having trouble finding the proper code in the css file to properly space the text in the header so that it doesn’t overlap the logo icon I have created. I know this can be done. Is there anyone that could offer any pointers? What in the css file do I need to edit and where is it? Ugh.

    I must apologize: I cannot post a link to the site I’m working on since it isn’t live yet. I can’t launch until I am 99% bug free. Hopefully, this won’t be a problem since the answer to my question concerns the location of the proper code I should edit.

    Thank you for all you do, to all the posters who do it! You rock!

  • Without seeing what the issue is, or what the elements are that are causing the issue it will be very difficult to resolve the problem.


    Is the issue the logo is overlapping the navigation?

    If that is the case try adding this to your CSS

    #logo { margin-top:.5em; }

    Hi haldav,

    I have installed the theme on my test server and taken a look at it.

    Assuming that you are adding your logo as a background image in the header, and text is covering it up because it’s too far to the left. You’ll need to find the #logo div in style.css and add, then increase the “margin-left” property. In this instance #logo is what they are blocking out the header text with, not the logo image.

    If I’m wrong about how you are adding your logo, you’ll need to tell us how you’re doing it, or give us a link to the site so that we’re not flying totally blind.

    I hope this helps.

    Sweet, Robert. Thanks. I’ll give that a try. I also thought to just make my logo a banner instead. Duh, right? I’ll let you know how it turns out. Maybe post a screenshot.
