Reposition Header Text

    Greetings,
    Bit of a noob here, using an image for the header, just want to reposition the header text, either to top, right or be able to clear it below the image. I’m trying to use the header text for company contact info so if there’s a way to just put text in between header and menu that would work too.
    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Most likely you’re going to want to stick to making CSS edits here so you can stay out of the PHP side of it unless you want to get to moving stuff with action hooks.

    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 overriding edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    So, for example, here’s the selector you can see with your inspector controls where the item wrapping the header text and social icons is positioned:

    #branding .header-addon-with-text { ... }

    It’s already positioned absolute, so you can move that where ever you want within the header:

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. 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.
