Css selector for sidebar widget

Recommended Posts

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

      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

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
       
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
       
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      }
       
      change sizes to suit.
       
      Cheers.
