I have a wordpress theme that has whitespace at the top of the header and between the title and the body and I cant figure how to reduce it! Help.

I am attaching an image of the white space I want to get rid of. I will upload the CSS files in a minute.

Whenever you find yourself staring at a CSS issue, right click and select "Inspect Element" if you are using a decent web browser.  This will highlight the element (and allow you to select a new element if needed) and show you a box outline representing the element's size and the CSS affecting the element.

In this case you have:

h1 {
	font-size: 24px;
	color: #24A0E0;
	padding: 10px 0 45px 0;
}

Open in new window

The 45px of padding is what is causing the whitespace.
