    I have a strange problem when modifying the layout in my child theme of Thematic.
    I have moved the header, menu and content upwards, because in Thematic the header size is too big for my purposes.
    I have used for example this code in my style.css: #main { position:relative; top: -120px;}

    However, when doing this, the links in the upper part of the page don't work. The menu works as usual.

    Do you possibly know a way to solve this?
    Thanks in advance - I really appreciate the effort of running this forum.

    I'm still working on this site locally on my computer - but here's a link to another site with the same problem:
    (original address:)

    Here I have completely removed the horizontal menu, but the link problem is the same. For instance, you can't click on the title of the first post on any page.

  4. Hellah-

    #main is hidden behind #branding. Here is where your problem lies

    #main {

    adding z-index:2; to #main will make the links accessible again but if it were me I'd reather not use the relative positioning and instead do something like this:

    #branding { padding-bottom:0; }
    #access { display:none; }
    #main { padding-top:0; }

    Hope it helps - Gene
