Pilcrow Tag Line

    Hi. there is a dot .´´ that appears at the beginning of my Tag line.
    I tried to edit this in settings>general>tagline but there is no dot there.
    Can you please advise. I am using pilcrow

    The blog I need help with is familyspiritadventures.com.


    That is a separator and unfortunately, that is set in the theme PHP script files, so it cannot be removed. There is a sort of “trick” that can be used in some cases, but unfortunately not with Pilcrow.

    What you could do would be to put your tagline into a text widget and then use positioning (absolute) to move it up and below your site title. You would get the same affect. You may have to target the text widget by ID# and change the width and such.

    Also, to get the text widget to keep its final relationship with the rest of the content no matter if you are logged in or out, set #wrapper to position: relative; .


    Woah, all that to remove a little dot. Atleast it is possible. Thanks


    You are welcome.

    It isn’t that difficult if you want to do it. Just create the text widget (no title) and put it into the sidebar and we can help you move it up and get everything set right although it looks like you have a reasonable grasp of CSS.


    Reasonable is flattering thanks, it has been a struggle. I have created a txt widget and dragged it up to the sidebar with the required txt, but my site is not set up with a sidebar so even when I update/refresh my site I am unable to see the txt widget. Am I in the ball park?


    Hi Sacred Path. I have the txt widget in sidebar. Can you advise what needs to be done from here. cheers!


    You know, this gets tricky if you want to not have sidebars on static pages. Is that your desire then the solution you have would be the best and possibly the only one?

    If you keep the sidebars, then the following will move the text widget up and into the header area.

    Remove these from your CSS:

    #footer #site-info {
    color: #382014;
    font-size: 0.85em;
    position: absolute;
    right: 299px;
    top: 140px;
    width: 52%;
    #footer #site-info a {
    display: none;

    Add these to your CSS (I centered the text):

    #page {
    position: relative;
    #text-4 {
    position: absolute;
    top: 160px;
    left: 0;
    font-size: 14px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 100%;

    just to confirm the only way I can effectively remove the dot before my tag line would be to have sidebars on my static pages and make the adjustments to have outlined above?

    or perhaps design a new header?
