I'm stumped. I know I cannot use negative padding. How do I reduce the blank space showing above my logo/blog name area -- "Hatchtown ..." -- I can't see where the ATO are applying any padding or margin.

http://www.hatchtown.com/



It's funny, the height of this area seemed to increase when I updated from ATA 3.4.2 to 3.4.4 -- does that make any sense?

it does make sense that it changed, Flynn made some adjustments in the H1, H2,... area of the CSS

Yous space is caused because there is a margin on H2's set to 1em.

go to ATO->Style & edit HEADER AREA->Blog Title and change 'margin: 0;' to 'margin: .2em;' and see what happend.

BTW are the NÝstepinde's nice and straight? theylook like they could make good mountain dulcimer noter's

I fooled around with with margins for some time and finally settled on:

Blog Title --
margin: .5em 0em .1em 0em;
padding:0;

Blog Tagline --
margin: 5px 0px 10px 55px;
padding: .1em;

as being pleasing to the eye. I wish I had a better sense of what's happening as I make the changes.

You are a man of surprises! The NÝstys are straight, but tapered, and their diameter (3/4"+) is a bit larger than I like for a noter. Pam and I have lap dulcimers stowed under bed -- haven't played in YEARS.
