    I am using the Matala theme and have recently purchased the custom upgrade. I was hoping to be able to move the sidebar up so it is in line with the page headings (where is says ‘welcome’, ‘blogs’, etc), is this possible and how?

    I would also like to be able to make the heading and article a little closer to the page headings if possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is jimvnorton.com.

    Yes, that can be easily done with the following. It aligns the title text in the top widget with the title in the content area.

    #secondary {
    margin-top: 60px;
    }

    That’s great, thank you.

    Is it also possible to bring the page headings on the scrap paper closer to the header?

    Yes, change the -130px value (-150px would move it up further).

    #content {
    margin-top: -130px;
    }

    Ah apologies, I meant from the main header at the top of the page (the 940×150 pic) to the page headings on the scrap paper. I’ve fiddled around and they seem to be connected..

    (sorry about the lack of technical wording! I’m new to css)

    Add this and adjust the 25px value (what it is now).

    #access {
    margin-top: 25px;
    }
