Css selector for sidebar widget

Recommended Posts

cerchris

Hello

 

http://janetnicol.co.nz/?page_id=23

I have spent ages trying to find the css selector for the 2nd text widget in the universal sidebar. I am wanting to customise the heading for "news and updates", and fix the left hand dotted border so that I can fill in the gap between the "testimonials" and "news and updates" text-widgets

 

Thanks so much

I don't believe there's a specific selector for each text widget.  However, you can certainly add a unique class to wrap the content you're adding to the widget.

 

Something like <div class="mywidget1">your content</div>

 

Then you can create your own CSS for it by adding

 

.mywidget1 {color:#C00000; } and so on.

I am using a "text" widget in a universal sideabar area and I tried adding <div class="mywidget1">your content</div> into the title section, but when I click save the html disappears. Where would I add the unique class you suggested above?

 

Also, From firebug I can see that the top sidebar widget is :
<li id="text-2" class="widget_text widget fix">

2nd widget is:
<li id="text-4" class="widget_text widget fix">

 

With text-2 and text-4, does that mean it is possible to find a unique selector for each?

Yes, it does.  You'd add the code I provided inside the text area of the text widget. I'm sorry,  I did not realize it was the widget title.

 

I see this code in your CSS for that specific title:

 

#sb_universal .widget .widget-pad {
    background: url("
") repeat-y scroll left top transparent;
    margin-top: 40px;
    padding: 15px 20px 0 25px;
}

When I adjusted the margin-top to 2px, the dotted border above met up perfectly

Yes I see that the 2px matches up the dotes - but that makes the heading for the first widget text "testimonials" sit to high and doesn't leave enough space between each textwidget.

 

My apologies - to be clear I am trying to find the individual css selectors for each textwidgets (as seen in the universal sidebar of this page http://janetnicol.co.nz/?page_id=23):
1- testimonials = li id="text-2"

2- news and updates = li id="text-4"

once I have this I can then change the icon next to the "news and updates" title, and should also be able to match up the dotes
if that isn't possible, is there somewhere else I can place the your suggested code - <div class="mywidget1">your content</div> this didn't work in the title section of that textwidget

You have already answered your own question!

 

 

 

Also, From firebug I can see that the top sidebar widget is :

<li id="text-2" class="widget_text widget fix">

2nd widget is:
<li id="text-4" class="widget_text widget fix">

 

With text-2 and text-4, does that mean it is possible to find a unique selector for each?

 

Thats you answer right there, every text widget you add to your site will be given a unique ID, which can be used to add custom CSS to a particular widget.

Not sure what you mean in your reply, what does the hover state of buttons have to do with a text widget ID ?

Oh god sorry I am confusing myself and you getting mixed up between 2 different posts I have going - the issue with the buttons relates to the other post.

 

As for this one, can you please give me the css selector for each of the text widgets? - seems I am very close by getting the text-2 and text-4 parts, but I tried and tried for ages in my css and couldn't get anything to affect the individual text widgets

You've got it already :-)

 

Its #text-2 and #text-4 they are the css id's you can use to affect those specific text widgets


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

thanks so much you guys!! Problem solved

as usual it was simpler than what I was trying with my over complicated css.

Changed the individual text-wdget header and closed up the dotes with the correct spacing

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael
