    I am trying to migrate a site using an old free WP template to exhibit. I am doing this now on my laptop, because my desktop computer died; but I can only see the logo, headline and subbed on my screen. They’re so big, I can’t see any other element, so I can’t do any design work. Help!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hi there – sorry to hear you’re having problems with the theme. Do you still want help with this? It looks like you’re using a different theme now.

    In answer – Exhibit does have a very big header size. It’s designed to make your brand one of the most important things on the site. Unfortunately this can be awkward with lower resolution screens. Can you tell me what sort of laptop you have (in particular what resolution your screen is)?

    I have tweaked the theme so it should work a bit better on shorter screens so hopefully that will help.

    And now I realise it’s the other site – not the first one I viewed. In that case – I have tweaked the theme which should help. If you have the custom css add on then I could also give you some css that will shrink the site title – which is what seems to be causing the issue.

    Alternatively I’d suggest shortening the site title, and adding more of the title message to the description. That will give you a lot more space to work with.

    Hi, I can’t shorten the title (it’s a title). It may be best to get a different theme for this, as the posts below it really need to be visible without scrolling down. When I saw the thumbnail on this, I didn’t consider how the length of the title and the design would affect this. But now I see it, and I think I need to choose a different theme. Can I exchange Exhibit for something else?.

    I have a macbook air, by the way.

    Thank you!

    By title, I mean it’s a proper title, for a film.

    Ah – ok. I see how that could be a problem then.

    As I said before – if you have custom css (https://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/) then I can give you some css that would scale down the whole header.

    If that’s no good then you’ll need to get a refund on this theme and buy whichever one you want to switch too. There’s info on refunds here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/refunds/

    Hi, I don’t want to learn CSS :o(.
    I think it would be best for me to get a refund. Thanks so much for your help. Very much appreciated!
