    Hey all,

    Playing around with this theme on a domain, going for a minimal look, can’t seem to get the header/footer to adjust properly.

    Site: http://www.ciotti.co/

    You’ll see up top that I’m reducing the height (I’ll do the same thing on the footer too) by simply adding:

    height:200px;
    margin:0 0 0 1px;
    padding:0;

    …under #header.

    Is there anyway to “crop” the top so to speak, so that the site title is centered and the header is reduced to have just enough space (with some slight padding) to contain the text and the Twitter button?

    Thanks and have an amazing weekend.

    –Greg

    I’m guessing you want to keep the twitter box under your name?

    If so try adding this to style.css

    #title-area {
    margin-top: -100px;
    width: 45%;
    }
    

    If you want it beside your name try adding this too:

    #header .widget-area {
    width: 50%;
    float: right;
    margin-top: -40px;
    }
    

    To tweak the height from the top -you lessen margin-top: -80px; – just play with that number

    Hope that was what you were looking for


    cheers

    That’s awesome! We love WPMU and just did a collaboration with them, I just saw that it recently went out (I did an interview with the founder, awesome company).

    I don’t think I can PM you on this forum, but feel free to email me (GJCiotti <at> gmail) if I can help you out at all!

    Yeah I’ve been a wpmu member for nearly 4 years now… I jumped on the multisite bandwagon before it became part of WP.  I just LARVE it!

    So are you telling me the special is over?

    I’m in the process of putting together my 3rd local business multisite (my first is now the largest website in it’s niche in Australia… woohoo!) – and was looking to grab the special for Help Scout next week when I can breathe again after the launch!

    I might just email you for a chat!


    cheers
