Menu Bar Height


Hi Vlad,

Newbie here who is blown away by your support on the forum!

My site is

I am having trouble resizing the Menu bar (Navbar?). I would like to have it a bit thinner then it presently is.




Use this in a custom CSS plugin:

.site-branding {
   padding: 40px 15px;
.main-navigation li {
   padding: 40px 10px;

Change both 40px to the value you want.


Thank you, Vlad.

So I should not just add it it to the Stylesheet in the WP Editor?



Nope, always use a custom CSS plugin or a child theme when you’re doing CSS changes. Otherwise you’ll lose your changes when the theme gets updated.
