    I am working on this site: http://greenouselandscape.com/

    I am trying to make the header a bit taller to fit the logo and when I look at the css in Firebug it has the height of the header being driven by cssLoader.php

    There are no styles in the php file. I'm confused and everything else I mess with makes an empty space between the header and the slider.

    And thoughts?

    Thanks!

    The php file is nothing but styles when I look at it in Chrome Dev Tools, and I did find the height:110px in there.

    You are using the Dandelion theme, and it probably has interior folders for various page templates, according to thier function (home, portfolio, contact, etc) or possibly the colour set chosen. There will usually be more than one css file in any given theme - some of them are tucked away in those interior folders.

    "cssLoader.php" is a file that tells the page which css file to load according to whatever template you are using for your page. That's why when you look at the cssLoader.php file in whatever online tool you are using (Firebug, ChromeDev) it shows the output of the css file (the styles) rather than the actual PHP coding.

    One of the ways you can find all the css files is to download all of your files by FTP (you don't have to worry about the database, just the files), keeping the folder hierarchy the same as it is online. The easiest way to do this is just to download the "[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]dandelion_v2.5" [/COLOR]folder. Then do a search of that folder for all css files (*.css) and see how many you find.

    After that, you will have to ascertain which template is used for the page you want to change (look in the admin dashboard), and alter the css file associated with that template.

    Remember that anything you change will affect all the other pages based on that template.

    I figured out that it was driven by a control in the wp admin! Thanks for the feedback. It must have been calling to some dynamic css file somewhere. A little beyond me, but I'm, learning.

    Many of the "extra" CSS files are controlled from the admin - either through choosing a particular template or changing some other aspect, like a slider, a featured image or post, a colour change across the theme, etc.
