How to remove padding from your Header

Here's another super simple blogger tutorial for you all. Do you use the Simple Template on blogger and you hate seeing the padding on the sides of your header? like this....
If you want your header to wrap around without the padding then all you gotta do is go into 
Design-->Template Designer-->Advanced and scroll down to Add CSS and paste the following code:
.content-inner {
padding: 0px;
if you notice (in your preview section) that your header has gone off to one side then you have to adjust your entire blog width for your header. You can play with it and see the changes in the preview section before clicking "Apply to Blog"....
If you are happy with what you see then go ahead and click the Apply to Blog button!
Hope this tutorial was helpful. You can find more of my tutorials here.

  2. Hi Cindy! I have been making my way through all your tutorials - love them - such easy fixes that make a big difference. I was wondering if you had a quick code that allowed me to center my picture in the header too? Now that I have my page bar centered, and my padding removed, my silly picture is floating all the way to the left! Any suggestions?
