    I have a child theme for twenty thirteen and have made several alterations

    I have a header of 230px (same as the default)
    BUT I want to decrease the height of the navbar
    it seems to be 75px in height but I cannot find where it is defined.
    something must be defining it elsewhere in style.css
    or am I wrong?

    please help with what will seem to be a simple matter but i am stumped




    It is not defined anywhere but takes the size of the font and padding inside the link that is .nav-menu li a. Easiest would be to decrease the padding there.

    Without providing a link or demo, you’re usually unlikely to get a reply by the way.


    dear Shikkediel,
    thanks for prompt reply. However alterations to the style.css where you suggested did not have any effect. :(
    I now layout my problems for this navbar if you would be good enough to read it and find time to help me again please.

    my website plan is on

    user1 pw= bloggs

    1. the grey navbar is about 75px in height. I want to make it about half that.

    I have created menu buttons on the navbar by calling a class in style.css

    I call it by putting (<button class=”navbtnhome”>home</button>) in the navigation label in menus
    2. I cannot change the menu button colour in that class (inheriting it I suppose.)

    child style.css here:

    any further info needed then please ask.

    PLEASE help – Thanks



    I’m not really seeing anything to work with on the aforementioned site…


    Thanks for your effort Shikkediel
