    Hi all,

    I am not a guru coder but I can get around if I am given instructions. Here’s what I am trying to do.

    I have purchased the Generate theme and I have a logo inserted. However, the logo is longer than the alloted space for it to work properly with the header widget on the right. If there is no widget, the logo looks fine.

    How can I do either of the following:

    A. Get the background on the header widget to be transparent so that the logo can show through?


    B. Change the z index so that the widget can be behind the logo. (question here is, if the logo is positioned in front of the widget layer, does that deactivate the ablity of the user to interact with the widget, for instance in the search widget?)

    Any help on this is appreciated. Thanks so much!


    You can reduce the width of the header right widget and increase the title width by the same values:

    Line 188 of your child themes style.css file:

    #title-area {
    	float: left;
    	padding: 20px 0 0;
    	width: 450px;

    Line 216

    #header .widget-area {
    	float: right;
    	padding: 15px 0 0;
    	width: 500px;



    THanks Brad. I had done that before but your comment made me look again. What I had NOT done was edit the Header Image Partial width area.

    .header-image #title a {
    display: block;
    float: left;
    height: 100px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 0;
    text-indent: -9999px;
    width: 600px;

    I needed to also increase that from 450 to 600. All fixed now. Thanks bud.



    Thanks for sharing the solution Robert.



    No problem. THat’s what ‘community’ means to me.
