Updated AdRotate and now my site is all wonky. Help!

  • Today I updated AdRotate and after the update it seems like my front page is stretched, and my banner/header up on the top of my site is all the way at the end of the page which is giving my site a scroll bar at the bottom of the page. I tried to fix it, but I don’t think I know enough about WordPress to fix the problem. Can someone please help me out?

    Thank You,

    Change your style.css file line 70 to:

    #header-banner {
    position: absolute;
    left: 500px;
    top: 63px;
    }

    Hi Chris,

    I’m still sort of a newbie and I don’t know where to find the style.css, I thought it would be in the editor but I don’t see it in there. Could you please tell me how to find it?

    Thank You,

    You should be able to access it though the editor. You can find it via ftp in your themes root folder.

    Hi Chris,

    I still can’t figure it out. I have looked all over, how do I find the theme root folder? Sorry, I’m still real new to this.

    Thank You,

    Hi Chris,

    On the bottom of the editor I found style.css to the right, it was highlighted in grey. Now I am trying to find line 70. How do I know it’s line 70 when I see it?

    Thank You,

    Hi Chris,

    This is the line that I found.

    #header-banner { position:absolute; right:0; top:63px; }

    Do I just change the “right: 0 ” to “left 500px” ?

    Thank You,

    Yes just like it says in my original answer. Also please do not use a signature in this forum. You can fill out your profile with your websites info.

    Hi Chris,

    I did what you said, but nothing changed. This is how the line looks now.

    #header-banner { position:absolute; left:500px; top:63px; }

    The line is not changed. Line 70 in style.css is still the same.

    The line originally looked like this:

    #header-banner { position:absolute; right:0; top:63px; }

    Now it looks like this:

    #header-banner { position:absolute; left:500px; top:63px; }

    After I changed it I clicked on “update file”. Did I miss something?

    Now it’s working and I can see the change.

    Maybe it’s my computer? I just looked at it on my girlfriends laptop and it is working, but on my computer it’s still not right.
