Widgetizer / Widgets AND Widget Titles/Name Styling - I Need Your Help


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi PageLines Folks, 

 

I'm need your help. 

 

I've created a site using PageLines DMS which is in development here: http://174.121.37.221/~aws/

 

I've placed two widgets into this design using the widgetizer sections, inside some columns.

 

I want to make the 'blue highlighted sections' bold/larger: http://screencast.com/t/xHnwPzT6bzBv

 

But when I use Firebug to get the class/id reference for this title/row, I can only get: http://screencast.com/t/xHnwPzT6bzBv for the whole widget content, but I cannot see a tag around 'just' the title. 

 

I can edit the CSS to make the whole section bold: http://screencast.com/t/hM0a26eHR, but again I'd love it to only affect the 'title'.

 

(I've set these title names in Wordpress > Appearance > Widgets.)

 

Any help would be immensely awesome. 

 

Thank you all in advance for your help, tips, hints and fixes. 

 

- Fiona

The issue is actually related to the Custom Sidebar plugin which we recommended. We have since (about 6 months ago) updated our creating a custom sidebar docs page with an alternative plugin which wraps your widget titles with the correct tags, so you can add styling.

 

You can see our documentation here - http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/custom-sidebars

Found a bit of a fix. 

 

.sidebar_widgets{font-size: 100%; font-family: Verdana; line-height: 1.55em; font-weight: bold;} <------ making it bigger
.sidebar_widgets .textwidget, .sidebar_widgets ul li {font-size: 100%; font-family: Verdana; line-height: 1.55em; font-weight: normal;}  <------ making the content back to its original size
 
It would be super helpful if there was a tag around the title. 
 
Any other ideas....?

Hi FionaFell - Are you using the Custom Sidebars plugin? If so, I'm sorry to say this is unfortunately a known issue with that plugin that we've been trying to find a workaround for. I have a couple of options to pass along in the meantime:

 

1. The developer suggested the following:

You can edit the widget pre headers to add the widget class to all the widgets of a sidebar. Try to edit a sidebar Appearance >> Custom Sidebars and you will be able to change the widget wrappers.
 
See here to add dynamic class for each widget http://digwp.com/2010/02/how-to-widgetize-wordpress-theme/
 
2. Other option is to utilize a different plugin. Give http://wordpress.org/plugins/content-aware-sidebars/ or http://wordpress.org/plugins/sidebar-manager-light/ a try and see if one of those does the trick for you.

Hi guys! I was able to get around this by using the "title" section in the DMS store. You can see it in the footer here: http://jennajonespreview1.info/
