PowerCMS toolbar overlaps content being edited

PowerCMS toolbar overlaps content being edited

I've used the new PowerCMS from scratch on a new site for the first time where a user can update their content on the live page, but the toolbar is overlapping the top of the content so the user can't see the first line or so.

I've been through all the css files to try to shift it up by 40 pixels by using margin-top:-40px; and in some places I might expect it to have an effect, nothing happens, and in others I've managed to shift it up, but the tool bar collapses to a thin line across the screen hiding any buttons available.

I've attached screenshots showing the problem.

In one screenshot you can see it overlapping content, in the other you can see where I have the full content on display, but this is only achieved within the browser's inspect element facility. Here I have changed the code for the containing div to display: block; margin-top:-40px, to get this to display properly on my computer, but I can't find it anywhere in the CSS or actual pages to make this change permanent.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Mat

in your CSS, add the following selector:
.cke_chrome {
margin-top: -59px;
}

With respect to the toolbar from PowerCMS covering the text I am editing on the live pages, I've built another website based on files from the website above, and I have implemented the fix you mentioned above, but for some reason it hasn't worked on the new site and I can't figure out why. The CSS is the same file on this site as the one previously, so I don't get why it's doing it. Can you advise again please?

Thanks.

If you need it, the server details for this are in the private section.

it looks like the margin is being over ridden by another selector, try adding !important; to css:

.cke_chrome {
margin-top: -59px !important;
}
