Support » Themes and Templates » Zombie Apocalypse Header/Top Margin

  • Hi All

    I apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, I have the Zombie Apocalypse theme installed on a spare domain of mine for a short while ( which will be moving elsewhere soon, and all I want to do is decrease the margin at the top so that when you are browsing through the site the main content fits in nicely.

    I have backed up the style sheet and tried changing everything that says margin or wrapper or padding and I am either moving the wrong thing or not doing anything at all.

    I am sure its something simple that I am missing but I just want to decrease the margin between the menu and the top of the window.

    Thank you in advance

    Try to avoid editing the theme’s styles, otherwise you’ll lose your changes when the theme updates.

    Use a Custom CSS Manager plugin to hold your CSS modifications.

    That means you’ll have to create new styles that override old styles.

    E.g, try creating this new style;

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

    You had it visibility of hidden before; which did hide the text, yes, but the styles applying to the text remained. So, the margins/ paddings/ height remained and was pushing down your content.

    Thank you for your reply Andrew.

    I know this is something that I need to implement and will make full use of this and child templates etc. when I move this site across to its intented domain.

    In the meantime however I have taken your comments on board but would still like to find exactly where I need to edit the code to reduce the margin.

    I am thinking of it as an experimental learning curve!
