I have set padding-top: 20px; in Body Style under Body, Text and Links. I also have padding: 20px; in Layout Container Style under Style and Configure LAYOUT. However the top padding doesn't seem to be working. The padding-bottom is working as expected. My site is: www.tatvaanveshanam.org. Using Atahualpa 3.5.3, and Wordpress 3.0.4

Thanks.

What are you trying to accomplish (EG where do you want padding or space)?

I'm not sure why some of your CSS is not working but the following should work. Put it in ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts

HTML Code:
#wrapper {
padding-top: 20px;
}

Thanks for the tip. Still doesn't work. If it helps, it was working until I changed the background to be an image instead of a color. Now even reverting to the color as background (instead of image) doesn't seem to get the padding-top: 20px; to work.

Thanks. 'margin-top' did the job. Interestingly, I don't have a margin-bottom set so I wonder what's working for the bottom that didn't work for the top originally.

Turns out that for the 'padding-top' to work as expected, background: url needs to go as the last definition under Body Style

Marking thread as resolved. Thanks to all.
