[resolved] Need help moving body down! (5 posts)

    Hello there!

    I just started using WordPress and am having a blast! I was able to install a theme (Vikiworks Infinity) and everything is working great, except I have a larger header and would like to move the body down.

    Here's a link to my blog so you can see what I mean. My new header is cutoff, and I'm guessing I'll need to edit the CSS, but I'm confused where exactly. I've looked at tutorials, but have had no luck.

    If you would like to see my CSS files, I will gladly post them. Thanks!

    Try adding a height of 130px to #header and see if that does it.

    Thanks for your response, ClaytonJames, but I tried adding it in with different values and it didn't seem to work. Maybe I put it in the wrong place. This is my header CSS:

    /* header */
    #header { width:950px;margin:0 height:130px;margin:0 auto;padding:1em 0 16em 0; }
    #header h1 a { display:block;font-size: 20px; margin: 5px 0; width: 240px;text-indent: -999em; }
    #header h1 a:hover { color: #7ebe40; }
    #main-wrapper { display:block; margin:0 auto;width:950px;padding:10px;text-align:left;background:url(images/px.png); }
    .main { width: 490px;margin:0;padding:0;float:left;overflow: hidden; }

    Maybe it also has something to do with the background?

    You might want to add a top margin to your #main-wrapper style. That should do it.
