Right Rail Widget Styling

Recommended Posts


Hi there,


I'm trying to modify the styles of the right rail widget and have found the attributes in Firebug, but am unable to find the selector (#)


Here are the attributes I am trying to modify to make the heading bigger, remove the extra padding, add a slight grey background, and a thing rounded border. 


.widget .widget-title {
    color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7);
    margin-bottom: 0.6em;
    padding: 3px 8px 3px 0;
    text-align: left;


When I add a value to change the size of the heading or the color and add to the Custom CSS code, the changes are not reflected upon save.

In my firebug this work fine, I try with



.widget .widget-title {
    color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
    text-align: right;
    padding: 3px 8px 3px 0px;
    margin-bottom: 0.9em;

You see this



To verify, please you don´t forget the final "}" and clean de cache after the change.

Life is too short to remove USB safely ...

Thanks for replying - isn't the selector supposed to start with a #? That's what I'm looking for because as is the .widget revision (with cache clearing) is not working. 


Thanks, Kristin

The # isn't a prefix for all elements.  For example, you can uses it for #boxes, but if you want the image in a box, it's .fbox.  If you're writing code for the body, it's just body, with no prefix.

      I am hoping to figure out how I can get my PageLines Full Nav to display layered in front of a sticky footer element on my website - 3keymedia.com
      I would like the Full Nav to overlay the entire screen when opening the menu as you will see when opening on a desktop the footer of nav content is cropped by the sticky footer.

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -
