Reduce top margin wordpress hosting

Greetings, and thank you for such a great theme. I just installed it last night and am very happy with how easy it is to work with. I too will be making a Paypal donation.

Three Questions Please:
1. How do I reduce the padding in the header? I’ve tried several options in the Custom CSS section, but am not getting it right.

2. How may I slightly increase the font in the menu bar?

3. How do I remove the author name and date from the bottom of the blog snippets?

Reduce top margin wordpress hosting top if you

My website is www.selfhelpsalad.com. I’d like to remove the grey padding at the top and bottom of the logo and center it.

Thank you for your help.

1. I would recommend to set this image as header image instead. It will be much easier to resize it properly, remove these blank margins you have now and center than image. Go to Appearance -> Header and and add your image there.

Then do the following steps:
Go to Theme Options -> Other -> Custom CSS and add the following code

Or adjust margin-top if you still see blank space.

2. Do the same as for the first step and add Custom CSS like this

Again you can change it to higher number if you like

3. Follow previous steps and add the following code to Custom CSS.

So everything you done previously should look something like this

Donations are highly appreciated. My PayPal ID is a.silkalns[at]gmail.com

Hello and thank you. I sent a donation this morning as soon as I posted my question. I appreciate your help.

The header still has the padding. I’ve tried all kinds of values from 200 to -300 px, and it has never changed appearance. I also cleared my browser cache.

The other two changes worked great. Any other ideas on how to get the padding out of the header?

Thank you for your help.
