    Hello, after removing a lot of text from 2 of my static pages, there is now too much space below the content page. I use Twenty Eleven theme. How can I move my whole page including header down? I have searched for the answer with no results so far. Many thanks.

    Thank you but I found the solution:-
    #page {
    margin: 75px auto 2em auto;
    max-width: 1000px;
    padding: 10px 10px 0 10px;
    width: 970px;

    I changed the values to what I wanted in style css

    I suggest this be done in a Child Theme or your edits will be lost on theme update.

    Hi thank you, I do have a child theme.

  6. Hi thank you, I do have a child theme.

    Off topic a little bit: you really don't. Which is completely fine BTW. :)

    What you have is a copy of the Twenty Eleven v1.3 theme.


    That will prevent Twenty Eleven updates from wiping out your work (different name and different directory) but it will also prevent you from getting bug fixes as well as any security updates for that theme (if any pop up).

    If you can identify the CSS you've changed then you can create a child theme and just put those changes after the @import line.


    From taking a quick look at your CSS it looks like you're changes can go into a child theme style.css file like this one.


    But I wasn't able to incorporate your changes exactly. The font color is off but doing a diff between your style.css file and the Twenty Eleven v1.3 file that's what I came up with.

    Sorry for the late reply, but thank you. Due to your advice I know have a "proper" child theme.
