Atahaulpa v 3.4.4
WP v 2.8.6
I haven't made any code changes directly, only through the Theme Options panel.
Among changes that may be relevant are in the Header Area/Style & Edit HEADER AREA. I changed spacing for different components in the header to negative values, such as these changes for
font-family: tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
(Default: margin: 0; padding: 0; letter-spacing: -1px; line-height: 1.0em; font-family: tahoma, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 240%
and for Search box (which I don't show in the header):
margin: -8px -10px 5px 0px;
(default: Default: border: 1px dashed #cccccc; border-bottom: 0; width: 200px; margin: 0; padding: 0
See attached pdf for all settings in this panel.
Funny, I just checked again and the problem is gone, in both Safari and Firefox. What I've done since I first wrote is:
-Updated and activated Akismet plugin
-Deactivated, uninstalled, and updated (but didn't activate) All in One SEO Pack plugin
-Installed (but didn't activate) ShareThis plugin
-Installed and activated WP-dbManager plugin
(After which I got this message, which didn't go away after I did what it said:
"Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public
To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /home/web74635/domains/owenlaws.se/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/backup-db")
-Installed but didn't activate WP Security Scan
-Installed but didn't activate WPTouch iPhone Theme
All of which is I presume totally irrelevant.
Funny thing is, I think this has happened before, where the "HEADER" text appears for a while, and then doesn't show for a while.
