[resolved] {PAINTER theme} header help! (15 posts)

    I'm hoping someone is out there that can help w/my wordpress theme called Painter. I'm having 'issues' with my wording in my header. (my web address)

    I cannot seem to figure out HOW to move this wording up into the left corner. I have a blog with a different theme and have no problem moving anything anywhere, but this theme, however wonderful it really is, isn't easy to move stuff or code stuff.

    Any suggestions? Thank you so much.

    (btw, I can change the colors and everything in the color editor, I just cannot move it.) Thanks.

    in style.css file of this theme find:

    #header .blog-title {
    padding:30px 20px 0;

    and remove line with padding (or change its values, first 30px is distance from top, and 20 from left border)

    This is all that's in my stylesheet:

    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
      but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
      GNU General Public License for more details.
    .aligncenter {
    .alignleft {
    .alignright {

    Seriously, that's all that's in there. Should I add what you wrote above? Thanks.

    When I go into my Theme Editor, and it lists the template files, and all the stuff like header, footer, etc etc is listed, then there's one file for styles, and that's the cut and paste (above). I Swear! :)

    Unless it's hidden somewhere?

    How did you find that (that you linked?) lol. I'm not seeing any of that, anywhere.

    to be sure: you look for style.css at you server, not at your home computer? ;)

    if i link to this file above, belive me: this file is there for 100% :)

    btw, this file you can also see (and edit) in dashboard of WP. go to dashboard > design > theme editor and at side you will see collection of theme files. most of them will be .php files, but you will se there also style.css

    Okay, yes, that's where I was looking. Here's what it says

    "Theme Files
    Comments (comments.php)
    Footer (footer.php)
    Header (header.php)
    Main Index Template (index.php)
    Page Template (page.php)
    Sidebar (sidebar.php)
    Single Post (single.php)
    Theme Functions (functions.php)
    Stylesheet (style.css)" ** This is the one I cut and pasted before

    I'm lost. I found all that through dashboard, but your file is not accessible through this. The only style file is that little thing I pasted.

    ok, i see the problem

    dashboard shows file

    but we need to edit:

    (do you see additional css/ in second url?)

    the file which you need to edit is in folder called 'css' inside of theme folder 'painter'. you cannot obtain it via dashboard. you need to use FTP program

    (btw, if you don't have ftp access we can do this without, but first try ftp)

    Oh good gravy. lol. Okay, I see I can access the file in my hosts file manager thing. Which I did. And I see exactly what you sent me. Now...should I change it in the file manager? Is there a way to put it with the other theme files in my theme editor in the dashboard?

    I won't actually change anything until you tell me to. I have a bad habit of messing things up. :)

    yes, you can put it in diffrent file, but don't worry just open this exact style.css file change what i suggested in first file and then save this file

    Oh I'm giving you lots of cyber hugs right now! You are a GENIUS!
    Thank you so much. I would have seriously NEVER found that on my own. In fact, when you sent me that file, I couldn't believe you found that. I knew I was looking for something like that but couldn't figure out why I couldn't access it.

    Again, thank you SO VERY much!

    Now I can tinker away!
