    Since this is my first post here, I hope you'll bear with me if this already has been resolved and I'm too incompetent to find it.

    I want to do two changes in my child theme compared to the original Thematic theme.

    1. I would like my header background image to span the blog description too, and not only the title. My current code just looks like this:

    #branding {
    padding:8px 0 1px;

    #blog-title a {
    background:url(images/1.jpg) no-repeat top right;
    text-indent: 0px;
    width: 940px;
    height: 150px;

    #blog-description {

    2. Is it possible to remove the horizontal default page menu? I'm using a page navigation in the right sidebar, and two feels like one too many.

    Apparently the easiest way to find answers on my own is to ask. :-) I found out how to remove the menu. So forget about question number 2.
    And since I've asked question number 1, I bet I'll find that too in a couple of minutes.

    Sort of given up on the prospect of spanning, now I've removed the descriton and are trying to close the gap between the bottom of the header and the top of the "index top"-widget. I've used every trick I can find in the forum but there's still about 59px I can't get rid of. Does anyone with a bigger brain than me have any suggestions?

  4. Hi,

    could you please drop a link?! .. the space between the content and the header is controlled by the padding defined for #main. Setting this to 0px will move everything directly below the header without any space left.

    Sure, here goes...

  6. Is it just the space above index-top or the space between the image and [index-top and #primary]?

    If I understand your question correctly: yes. (Mind you, English is not really my language). :-)

  8. Set padding-top for #main to a value lower 66px.
