    Hi,

    I’m trying to set up my website using the Adorable theme, and my header is being cut off. Can someone please tell me how to decrease the size to fit into the space (or make the space for the header bigger)?

    Also my tagline is not showing up

    Thanks so much!

    search for the following:

    #title {
    font-family: 'Sofia',cursive;
    font-size: 55px;
    height: 123px;
    letter-spacing: 0;
    margin: 0;
    text-transform: lowercase;
    }

    and change it to the following:
    #title {
    font-family: 'Sofia',cursive;
    font-size: 50px;
    letter-spacing: 0;
    margin: 0;
    text-transform: lowercase;
    }

    you can change the font size: 50px; to whatever you like, but that’s the way to decrease the size of the title :)

    Thanks so much!

    One more question. To create a custom menu, do I need to actually create and publish pages (i.e. About, home, blog) before I can add to the menu since right now, I don’t seem to have any choices.

    yes, or you can create custom links as place holders. when creating a new theme, i usually import the xml from the child theme on the studiopress site that has all of the menus and content that you need to see what the site can do.

    Sorry, a bit too advanced for me and not sure I understand. what would be the easiest way for me to create the top navigation bar? Is there a default menu that I can turn on and then just rename the tabs?

     

    Thanks for your patience.

    no, there is no default menu you can turn on, sorry :(

    you can either create pages or create custom ones just to create a menu. this should walk you through the process: http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

    Here’s a StudioPress tutorial on setting up your menu:

    Navigation Menu

     

    To display your tagline, you would need to replace this in your CSS:

    #title-area {

    	float: left;
    	height: 123px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	padding: 17px 0 0;
    	width: 422px;
    	text-shadow: -1px -1px 1px #fff;
    }
    
    
    With this:
    #title-area {
    	float: left;
    	height: auto;
    	padding: 17px 0 0;
    	width: 422px;
    	text-shadow: -1px -1px 1px #fff;
    }
