Newbie- I want to separate my header template area from hitting the top bar

Recommended Posts

cindyjbryant

I'm a newbie, so I'm still learning.  I can't seem to figure out how to separate the header template area from the top of the site, or top bar at the very top of the site.  What I want is to bring the header template area down some, so that you can see my background image.

 

I don't know how to even go about giving that a class, or code it in custom code.  Can anyone help me please.

Thanks.

Hi Cindy - do you have a link to your site?

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

I presume you're referring to the fixed nav menu at the top.

 

You can go to your site in Chrome (must be logged in as admin) and click Global Options.

 

You'll see a list on the left in the editor.  One of the options is NavBar.  You can deactivate the fixed navbar there by unchecking "Enable Fixed Navigation Bar".

 

If you're trying to keep the fixed nav bar but add space, you can use CSS by adding padding or margin at the top.  You'd find the element, using a tool like Firebug for Firefox and locate the element. 

 

Here's an example of something that might work:

#header {margin-top: 25px;}

 

Add that to Custom Code.

 

Let us know if it works. If it does, you can play with the number to see what works best.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.
