    I have to edit padding-top option to make admin bar look better. But in which file do I have to edit padding-top option?

    :-) of course in each themes stylesheet => you are editing each theme to make the theme look better or display the admin bar at all, remember?

    Thanks for the reply :) I tried increasing padding-top options by 28 pixel, but admin bar still appears on top of header. For example, in default theme I found 2 padding-top options in 2 places:
    ______________________________
    .narrowcolumn .postmetadata {
    padding-top: 5px;
    }
    ______________________________

    and

    ______________________________
    /* Begin Headers */
    h1 {
    padding-top: 70px;
    margin: 0;
    }
    ______________________________

    which one do I have to increase padding-top by 28 pixel? Or do I have to add it manually?

    ok, thats not as easy as you might have imagined,

    thing is I don't have a default theme available here at work to look at, so I'll try and explain it.

    padding-top: 28px; means that whatever element you are giving this attribute, will keep a "28px distance" between itsself and the top border of your browser.

    so you need to find the top element of the theme you're trying to modify and assignt this paddig-top: 28px; to that element, so that the admin bar fits in these 28px between the top and the top-most elemetn.

    hope this helps you.

    i've always just jumped into the body element and used margin-top:25px;

    works fine so far!
