Vantage Theme – Hide Site Identity and White Space

Hello! I am very new at making a website with WordPress and do not know much about CSS. I was wondering if someone here could help me. I am trying to hide the Site Identity, especially the white space that goes with the Site Identity, with the Vantage Theme. I’ve tried some CSS that I found on google, but it also gets rid of the menu that’s at the top of the screen. Couldn’t someone please help me? I would highly appreciate it. Also, I apologize if the choose the wrong thread topic and type. I wasn’t sure which option to choose.

Thank you!

    Hi Ejcurrier,

    By site identity do you mean the logo? If so, you can remove this with some custom CSS. If you navigate to AppearanceCustom CSS, you’ll get our custom CSS editor. Just add the following CSS.

    .logo {
    	display: none !important;

    You might also need to install the SiteOrigin CSS Editor.

    If this isn’t what you’re after, do you have a public URL where we can take a look at what’s going on?

    I haven’t hooked up the wordpress to my domain name yet, but here is a screenshot.


    By Site Identity, I mean the Site Title that is next to the Logo. If you don’t put in a Site Identity or a Logo, you are left with a blank white space. If you go into wordpress -> appearance -> customize, then you can choose to edit Site Identity. I’m looking for a way to get the site identity, logo, and the white space that they are in, to be gone, but without getting rid of the black menu. I have discovered CSS which hides the Site Identity and tagline (as it is not a good idea to leave the site title empty for the site identity, because search engines use that if someone were to search me up on google, etc.), but I cannot hide the white space above the black menu at the top of the screen.

    If you need me to hook up the wordpress to my domain name, please let me know and I’ll do that for you.

    Thank you very much for replying.

    Also, I did try that CSS you gave me. Thank you very much for it, but it didn’t hide all of the white space. Is there anything else I could try? Thanks!

    Hi Ejcurrier,

    Ah, okay. So you don’t want the masthead at all (the stuff above the navigation). Please navigate to WP AdminAppearanceCustomize, Theme SettingsLayout and set the Masthead Layout to Logo in Menu. Then please add the CSS provided in my previous email to your website.

    How does that look?
