Upgrading Webhelp skin?

We have an old project created in RH2019 Classic which used a customised Webhelp skin. We had removed the header and also the search field (we just had a search tab in the left-hand area). The company has upgraded to RH2020, and updating the projects (there are over 100 of them) does not upgrade the customised skins. I have managed to perform most of the customisations, but cannot see how to remove the header and search field. Is there a way to do this?

By default a responsive skin will have been applied, probably Azure Blue, but retaining your old skin name. If that is what you have used then customisation is limited. Even if I could find the answer it would not be for a couple of weeks as I am travelling. 

 

Frameless skins have many more customisation options built in. I hid the top section search by setting display to none. I think the header involves removing a div tag.

See if this works for hiding the search field. While it's for Classic, I don't think the responsive skins changed much.

For the header, you'll need to inspect the output and figure out what styles need to change to get the look you want. Once you figure that out you can add them to the custom css as per the post about the search field. If you're not that familiar with css and html I'd recommend asking a friendly developer for help (it's not hard, just confusing if you're not familiar with them already.)

Great, thanks. I have removed the errant search field. Now I just have to work out the header. Thanks for the help :).
