AdSense alignment

  • jkbanta


    How can I align my Google AdSense ad to properly fit in the space allotted? There is dead space on the left side of the ad and the right side of the ad is being partially covered by a widget. I just need to move it left.

    Here’s my site:

    It’s driving me crazy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



    Did you try using a smaller ad block?

    You need to update Graphene.

    Moved to Support.




    I would love to update however I don’t want to lose any changes and modifications I’ve made in the stylesheet. It’s inevitable though huh? I guess I’ll just have to bite the bullet, update Graphene and lose all my changes? If there’s a better solution I’m all ears.




    There is no other way. Whenever you edit your main style sheets you Risk loosing all of the changes you have been making through the style sheet. That is why it is recommended to First create a child theme. A child theme acts like a style sheet or custom CSS. The Good news is when you make a child theme and make your changes to your site through it (instead of the style sheet) you will never loose your changes ever again no matter how many Graphene updates you do. The bad news is you have to bite the bullet for not doing it before. So you will loose your changes. Make a child theme after you update to prevent it from happening again.



    Thanks for all the help and advice!

    Download your style.css as well a copy of the old Graphene stylesheet (from the Subversion repository). Use a site like or a program like WinMerge to identify the changes you have made and copy them over to a new style.css file. Use that new file as the basis of your new child theme.

    You will still need to adjust some things, because the way the theme handles certain things has changed over time, but you won’t have to change everything and you won’t have to do everything over from scratch.
