    Chrome issue

    Hi Guys,

    I am completely new to WordPress and right now I am trying to convert one of my web templates to a WP Theame.

    Everything works perfectly fine so far except one thing: the background image
    Here is the WP Theme that I am talking about: http://oacheprint.ro .The background image is not perfectly positioned at the top. There is a 20-30px black background. This only happens in Chrome v.25

    Here is the HTML/CSS that looks ok: http://oacheprint.ro/test/test/other.html
    Do you have any ideas what the problem could be?

    Thanks a lot,
    Andi

    I'm not seeing any difference in Chrome (also V25) to Firefox.
    Use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to check your code and Firebug to see what css is applied to an element

    Thanks a lot for your reply. You are right ... I've just checked my website on a friend's laptop (in Chrome) and there was no issue.

    Here is what I see: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9hsptg991fn3cai/chromev25.jpg

    Just to rule this out, are you logged on to your site admin in Chrome when you're seeing this?

    This seems to be the issue. When I am logged in I get that black space, otherwise the website looks ok.

    Is it a WP bug or something like that?

    Thanks a lot guys!

    By default, WP displays a bar at the top of the page to logged in users - you can disable this individually by unticking 'Show Toolbar when viewing site' on the profile page, but I think if you try and hide it in other ways (e.g. via css) then in some browsers the result is what you were seeing. I've seen this happen myself when I was trying to disable the admin bar for all users - it's better done by adding a bit of code to your functions.php if this is what you were doing.
