[CSS Customizations] Change position of logo and menu in header.

    Part of the theme’s slightly more unique design is that it takes the main navigation and logo of the header and centers them. Although, a more typical website might have these items aligned to the left. Here’s how you could make this customization if that’s something you’re going for.

    Align logo to the left:

    #branding .header_logo { text-align: inherit; }

    Align menu to the left:

    #access #primary-menu { text-align: inherit; }

    Note: By setting the text-align to inherit, we’re essentially just putting it back to its default state, which would have the text aligned left, assuming you’re working in a left-to-right language like English.


    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
