Wordpress Template CSS max/min-height issue

Hi, I'm working on celebratebirth.comcelebratebirth.com and the header is behaving erratically. When I use the inspector in chrome to view the code it shows this line for the top nav bar:

<section class="topBar normal-menu" id="top" style="min-height: 124px;">

Open in new window


yet when I look at it with view > Source i get this:
<section class="topBar normal-menu" id="top">

Open in new window

without the min-height. I'm trying to kill that min-height so that the bar will be shorter but I can't track it down. Went in to wordpress's custom css field and entered
.topBar .normal-menu #top {min-height: 74px !important; height: 104px !important;}

Open in new window


I'm still getting the same thing when I inspect the element with Chrome:
element.style {
min-height: 124px;
}

Open in new window


...in regard to that same line of code mentioned first above.

Any ideas how I can fix this please?

I want to change min-height to something lower like 74. I've removed id="top" and it appears that nothing is different.

Its coming via js if its nt present in your page.
Its hard to catch from where its getting added .
But even if you remove it . It would not be affect the height as minimum is 117px.
if you don't mind you could provide code details and if its not voiding EE rules

The header minheight is being overridden from the scripting and to fix it you are going to have to go through the excessive scripting to find where the style is being written.  As the style is almost certainly being put inline you cannot override with conventional CSS in a stylesheet.

You might try setting it with the important hack with min-height:74px !important; and if you are lucky then it will override and you will not have to dig through the scripting.  C

Just a caution that themes are frequently a house of cards and a minor change that the author did not anticipate may collapse the whole effect.

I'm not sure how I would find the excessive scripting related to this so I'm going to contact the developer and post his suggestion here once I have it. Thanks to you both.

This is the solution that was needed for the 907 wordpress template. Thank you all for your help!

/*Set Height*/
.topBar {
min-height: 60px;
}

.is-sticky{
height:60px;
}

/*Moves Menu adjust as needed*/
nav.mainMenu{
margin-top:20px;
}

/*Moves Logo adjust as needed*/
.topBar h1{
margin-top:15px;
}

Open in new window
