left margin change

    Theme Sundance – left margin got off at some point. How can I align it back with the left edge of my header image?

    The blog I need help with is mymateriallife.wordpress.com.


    The Sundance theme is working as it was designed. The trouble is that Gravatar (author images) are not displayed on the left of posts for a single author blog. You can see the author images to the left of posts on the demo site here:

    The demo site does not use a header image (the demo is using a featured video carousel feature instead), which is why yours look different.

    You have a couple options.

    You can stop using a custom header image and setup a video carousel instead. See the Featured Video Carousel section at http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/sundance/

    Another option could be to manually adjust the size of the header and shift the design left to compensate for the space a Gravatar would appear if you setup Sundance as a multi-author blog. Here is an example snippet of CSS you can use if you like this option:

    .masthead-inner > a img {
    	display: none;
    .masthead-inner > a {
    	display: block;
    	width: 874px;
    	height: 214px;
    	background: url(http://mymateriallife.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/cropped-img_63601.jpg?w=874) no-repeat;
    	margin-left: 11%;
    body {
    	margin-left: -11%;

    Belated thanks for this. Always appreciate your thoughtful and detailed assistance. I’ve decided to make the switch to a premium theme. Cheers!
