Support » Themes and Templates » Removal of space above header.

  • Hi, I have 3 things I would like to change on my site: for aesthetic reasons.

    1. Remove site title and tagline.

    2. Remove search box.

    (i am aware that these can be left blank on the settings menu, but not sure if i need to remove any other code).

    3. Remove the extra space above the header image, so the top of the image is at the top of the page.

    I am using the twenty eleven theme. I am a bit of a novice so apologies in advance if this is basic stuff!

    Thank you.

  • @vrt – before you do anything, please create a child theme so that your changes won’t be lost when you update WP. Or if you only intend to make CSS changes, you can install a custom CSS plugin such as jetpack. Once you have either of those set up, you can make the changes you want by adding this code to the new CSS section:

    #branding hgroup {
        display: none;
    #branding #searchform {
        display: none;

    And to remove the extra space at the top, change your css to:

    #page {
       margin: 0px auto;
       max-width: 1000px;

    Found on line 75 on your style.css

    <script src="//"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $('#searchform').css('display','none !important');
    $('hgroup').css('margin','0 7.6% -43px');

    Paste this code in <head> tag
