On the home page, your blog description is wrapped in a h1. But on all other pages it is a normal div and the h1 is the page title of the content. This is for search engine reasons since they give extra weight to the headings and there can only be one h1 element in a html4/xhtml1 document.</p> <p>Of you haven't styled #blog-description specifically, then the extra bottom margin on h1 elements will disappear on all other pages since the h1 is now a div. I don't see a blog description in your picture, but if you haven't removed it through functions.php but used display:none to hide it, then I suspect this is the issue. Try giving #blog-description a bottom margin. </p> omarelmasry on "Access bar backgroung JUMPS to the top (1 post)" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/access-bar-backgroung-jumps-to-the-top-1-post#post-23332 Mon, 03 Oct 2011 23:41:01 +0000 omarelmasry 23332@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>this is my first website ... i am working on localhost ... i am not familiar with hosting yet :( ...<br /> BUT ... why does the style alter on other pages although they are reading the same style sheet??? </p> ScottNix on "Access bar backgroung JUMPS to the top (1 post)" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/access-bar-backgroung-jumps-to-the-top-1-post#post-23328 Mon, 03 Oct 2011 21:16:09 +0000 ScottNix 23328@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>CSS like this is hard to troubleshoot without a live link.
