  • for some reason, you have got some invalid characters in these styles:

    #site-title {
    Â Â Â Â display:none;
    #site-description {
    Â Â display:none;

    what kind of editor have you used?

    try to go to the ‘dashboard’ ‘appearance’ ‘editor’ and edit style.css there.

    awesome. thanks alchymyth. i use textwrangler on a mac.

    i had my file as a utf8 or something. i made the change using the wordpress editor and then downloaded the file to see what format it was. The correct settings are Western (Mac OS Roman) and Unix (LF).

    I guess I’m a newbie compared to you guys! I tried editing the “display: none” from my dashboard but it’s not working. I tried it with and without a space after the colon. This is what I have so far…

    /* =Header
    ————————————————————– */

    #site-title {

    #site-description {
    clear: left;
    float: left;
    font-style: normal;

    :-S Do I need to download these files to my computer or am I making a more simple mistake???


    your way of editing is ok; the css looks ok;

    is your theme Twenty Ten or a child of it?

    without seeing the whole, it is near impossible to guess what might be wrong there.

    link to your site?


    Sorry for the late response!!! My dashboard says I’ve got Twenty Ten 1.1 Is that alright?

    My website is:

    (I’ve just deleted my site name so that nothing displays above the banner at the moment)

    Thanks SO much for your help 🙂

    ohhh… because if I haven’t made a child theme, then I can’t make any changes to the template? lemme try that… amateurs! ha! *blushing*

    the code you used is ok.

    to make changes to the styles immediately visible on the browser, you might need to clear the browser cache, by pressing ‘CTRL F5’ or the ‘reload’ button.

    It isn’t a refresh issue. I’ve been refreshing a bunch of times for various reasons. But I don’t have a child theme yet. I’m working on making one but it’s kind of like shooting in the dark for me. 😉

    if you don’t have a child theme, edit style.css of twenty ten nad make the changes there.

    Ok, I made a child theme with limited success. The only thing I’ve done is make a style.css document in a subfolder of themes.

    Everything seems to be fine — and now I’m able to name my site and suppress the display of it on the page (one small success!). HOWEVER, I now have some bizarre situation where the alignment is on crack and my periods are moved to the BEGINNING of a line. I’ve been playing around — changing various declarations’ “float: right” to “float: left” — but that isn’t working. Clearly there’s a bigger issue here.

    Maybe I need to make changes in the “One column, no sidebare” template?!

    Any ideas? 🙂

    is it intentional to set the whole site to right-to-left text direction:

    body {

    No it wasn’t intentional at all. It was the result of naive copy-pasting. So I changed it to “direction:rtl” to “ltr” Issue resolved. 😀

    Balance has been restored in the Bada Bing Hostel universe. Thank you sooo much.
    This is unrelated, so I could start a new thread because I haven’t seen anything about it in the last few pages of FAQ posts for Twenty Ten but…

    Is there any way to remove the black bar ABOVE the header image?

    in your child theme style.css, add:
    #branding img { border-top: none; }

    or find the style of
    #branding img { ... }
    in your stylesheet and edit it there
