[resolved] stop title from overlapping the picture (6 posts)

    I don't know how to do coding at all. Is there any way to not have the title overlap the picture without having to change code?

    You could probably do it by adding some CSS (not hard), but you should always include a link to your site so we can take a look.

    Unfortunately this isn't possible without at least a little bit of code, but it doesn't have to be too painful. Give this a try:

    1. Install and activate the Jetpack plugin on your site
    2. This will add a new Jetpack menu to your dashboard. Go to Jetpack > Settings then look for the 'Custom CSS' option and click on it's activate link
    3. This will now add a new 'Edit CSS' option under your appearance menu. Go to this page then paste this code into the editor window (you can leave out my comment at the top). Click the save stylesheet button.

    ...and that's it, your titles should now sit below the pictures instead of overlapping. I will just add that if you're feeling more ambitious it would be fairly simple to make this into a simple child theme of your own, but I believe you will find the way I've listed above simplest.

    Chrisdc1 - It worked!! Thanks so much for the clear, simple instructions. If the theme gets updated at some point would I lose this change if I don't set up a child theme?

    I'm glad that helped. There shouldn't be any problems if the theme gets updated. Making a child theme would mean you can remove the overlap without having to keep jetpack installed, but other than that the two methods should produce identical end results.
