There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Margin Height for whole theme

I'm messing around with final tweaks, so this might seem obscure.

I need to move the whole theme container down with HTML Margin-Height (or some other solution). This is typically very easy in HTML layouts. I tried using the "Layout" settings, but since the layout has a 1px border around the page it's giving me a empty buffer with the container style color between the outline and the header image which doesn't work aesthetically.

I thought I could do it with a HTML/CSS insert at "HTML Inserts: Body Tag" and it moved it down enough, but the HTML "marginheight="22" topmargin="22" for some reason was being displayed as text as well (so small I thought it was dirt on my monitor, until I highlighted it and copied it into a text editor to see what it was).

Perhaps I'm entering the HTML incorrect in the window. Maybe a bracket, semi-colon, etc missing, I don't know.

Is there an easy way to move the entire page down about 20 pixels of background color (all content that gets displayed with the theme opens below?).

Thanks as always!

you want Theme Options-> Body, Text & Links -> Body Style
put in: padding-top: 20px;
and see if that is what you want
