    I had to increase the height in my header to accommodate a larger logo, but this has also had consequences with the main nav which sits in the header widget area.

    How can I increase the size of that widget area so that the a:hover instance goes all the way down to the secondary menu?

    The height for this is controlled by the top and bottom padding, so you can change that around line 1270 of your theme’s style.css file:

    .site-header .genesis-nav-menu a {
        padding: 51px 18px 47px;
        padding: 5.1rem 1.8rem 4.7rem;

    You can change the 5.1/4.7 to whatever you’d like of course, and you might have to tweak for responsive, but that should get you going.

    Also, you’re .site-header .widget-area has a top margin of 1px, so there’s a slight gap above the menu when you mouse over the menu items. If you remove that and add 1px/.1rem to your padding above, it will fill the header space vertically with no gaps.

    Take care,



    Tony, thanks a million! Much appreciated!
