Restyling the side bar widgets

Recommended Posts

jamesjamesblundellcom

I want to restyle the sidebar widgets - removing the underline under the title and rollover(and the one at the bottom of a page) and making the background of buttons grey and a different colour on rollover. Where do I do this> been playing round for ages - can't find what affects it!!! Help!!!! James

Start with custom css to get the custom look you want. widget underlines can removed with this: `h3.widget-title {border:0px;}`

Did you happen to put it inside the body{} braces? They shouldn't be nested inside. If that's not what you did, please post a link.

no - don't know what you mean by that? http://www.facilitatethis.co.uk/ - I have no idea which style sheet to change - whenever I change the dynamic one it messes the nav that's controlled by a plugin, but changes nothing!! Me being daft I know!

It's not sounding like you put Adam's code in the right place. It should go in the PlatformPro > Settings > Custom Code > Custom CSS box on its own line.

Well we're not really supposed to do admin work from the forums.. that's PL Pros territory, but I did take a quick look. Your custom code has this just floating in there.. not sure if that's the cause, but nevertheless it shouldn't be there. `font-size: 11px`

I wanted to make the text smaller - wasn't sure where to change it - it worked there - where should I do it?

Hi James, You would want to put it inside of a specific element. For instance:

body{font-size:11px;}

(Again, you'll want to replace "body" with the element you want to change.)

thanks - that's got the text done! Do you freelance at all - this site has a number of visual tweaks to the navigation - side bar and main one (to show current page in a different colour) Normally I manage that myself but under the cosh on this one - and not familiar with the pagelines structure! Mail me at james@feeldesign.co.uk and I'll send a list of the bits needed! James
