I am trying to position the right sidebar so that it looks good on desktop AND mobile.  Ideally, I would like the "No obligation quotes" (in the right sidebar) to be even with the top of the trio of photos in the left.  When I get it looking good on desktop, the mobile version gets a huge gap.  Any advice would be great!

Try this ;)

You just need to add margin-top and add !important for the padding property for rule .sidebar .widget inside this media query @media only screen and (max-width: 1023px) {

So right now you have:
.sidebar .widget {
    padding: 30px;
}

Open in new window


replace above code with the following one:
.sidebar .widget {
    padding: 30px !important;
    margin-top: 10px !important;
}

Open in new window


That's it;

Unfortunately, that did not move the sidebar down on desktop.  Plus, the mobile version still has too big of a gap between elements.

I tried changing margin:top to 60px and it still doesn't show any change on desktop.  I dumped cache and viewed in private window.  No change.

I want to move ENTIRE sidebar content down and not increase the white space between the widget text items.  When I modify .sidebar, it applies that top padding or margin to ALL sidebar text elements.  

I modified this but it still impacts all elements

.sidebar-primary {
    margin-top: 70px;
}

Sorry, here it is.
@media only screen and (max-width: 1023px) {
 .sidebar .widget {
    padding: 30px !important;
    margin-top: 60px !important;}
  
  .sidebar-primary {
    margin-top: 70px;!important;
}
}

We need to reduce the margin-top: 60px !important; so make it 10px instead of 60px/70px.

The code margin-top: 70px;!important; is not correct it should be:
margin-top: 70px !important; no semicolon(;) before !important

My mistake on the error on the code.

I put in what you advised and saw no difference.

I then modified the code to the following and still see no difference.
@media only screen and (max-width: 1023px) {
 .sidebar .widget {
    padding: 30px !important;
    margin-top: 10px !important;}
  
  .sidebar-primary {
    margin-top: 10px !important;
}
}

Open in new window


You can tell by this screen shot that the widget is still sitting flush left.  The left margin should be 30px and I am not sure why it is displaying incorrectly.
