Headers for WordPress TwentyEleven Theme from England

Looking for unique headers for your WordPress Blog?

The headers placed on ShieldsGroup.com in August 2011 are from some pictures Laurel and I took when we were in the UK. Most are from London. They are all sized correctly and available for your use.

If you would like them, say so in a comment here and I will make them available to you.

Naturally, the headers provided to you will be without the watermark.

How do I get rid of the white space in WordPress Twenty Eleven Theme?

As I mentioned here, the look of WordPress with the Twenty Eleven Theme is just annoying to me. How do you get rid of the space above the Site Title? How do you delete the white space below the site title? What about all that space between the menu items?

On my own site, I created a Child Theme and placed these lines in the styles.css file.

Removing the Blank Space above the Site Header/Title

[cci]#site-title {
margin-right: 270px;
padding-bottom: 0;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0;
padding-top: 0.65625em;

Removing the Blank Space from the bottom of the Site Title of Twenty Eleven

[cci]#site-description {
margin-bottom: 0.0em;
} [/cci]

Removing the Blank Space between menu line items of the Site Title/Header of Twenty Eleven

[cci]#access a {
color: gold;
display: block;
line-height: 2.0em;
padding-bottom: 0;
padding-left: 1.2125em;
padding-right 1.2125em;
padding-top: 0;
text-decoration: none;

Ah — that makes things a little more compact.

Using SSL on WordPress…

Since I often use wifi hot-spots, I am a little paranoid about people stealing passwords. Therefore, I installed Open SSL on my server via my control panel at WestHost and installed the SSL Admin plugin in WordPress. This should only affect administrators. Reading the blog and commenting should remain the same. Please let me know if you note any problems.
