    We cannot edit templates or themes. CSS editing can only be done after you purchase an annually renwable custom design upgrade.

    Please read this so you aren’t confused about the limitations we have on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    Sorry.after reading the links,im still a bit confused.
    with wp.com it seems the custom upgrade will offer some but limited ability to change.
    WP.org seems more robust for changes,but is this only in coding(dont want to learn) and plugins?Does this have a WYSIWYG GUI as well?

    Bottom line.Can I create a small business site with WP.com custom upgrade and intermediate design skills?can my url be redirected to it?

    Sorry for the basic questions,but after 10 years this is pretty alien to me.

    The dashboard of the wordpress.ORG software is very similar to what is here except that there are some things missing that are unique to wordpress.com (far fewer widgets for one) and there are some things on the .ORG version that we do not have here (plugins, theme uploading, editing of themes). The issue with the menu can be fixed with CSS. You can add the following to the CSS edit window at appearance > custom design > CSS and then use the preview button to see the results. You may have to refresh the preview page since some browsers won’t pick up the change unless you do.

    #branding #s {
    display: none;
    }
    
    #branding .only-search + #access div {
    padding-right: 0;
    }
    
    #access a {
    padding: 0 1em;
    }
    
    #access div {
    margin: 0 5.6%;
    }

    The one thing to remember though is that what each person will see on your site depends a great deal on how they have their browser preferences configured. In addition, no two browsers render exactly the same. It might look fine in 3 different browsers, but not in another one. With the theme you are using, it also depends on how wide someone has their browser window set. Twenty Eleven is a responsive width design which means it will adjust things for narrower browser windows, or smaller screens such as tablets or smart phones. You can test this yourself by narrowing and widening your browser window.

    The above CSS though should catch the majority of normal computer web browsers.
