Change entry font-size? (5 posts)

    Hi all, trying to make the font size in the Twitter widget smaller than the body on my blog. I've checked out the text file and used

    .widget_twitter .entry-meta {
    display:block;
    font-size:80%;
    }

    in my CSS but the font size is still the same. I've found that when I change the body variables on my CSS form the font size on the widget also changes. How can I change JUST the twitter widget font?

    Thanks :)

    This will vary a lot depending on your theme. If you link to your site I can probably point you in the right direction.

    This site has instructions on how to change the fonts and font size. It makes the results vastly more readable. Unfortunately it's a manual fix and the first part has to be redone every time the widget gets updated (the CSS changes only need to be done once -- at least so far). http://www.geekinheels.com/2012/02/16/bloggy-thursdays-customizing-the-twitter-widget-pro-plugin.html

    Aaron -- it would be great if you'd incorporate something like this into the widget.

    I don't see me ever including styling CSS with the widget. Everyone wants it to look different, so making it easy to style yourself is the only current plan.

    Thanks Aaron. I think you could leave the CSS as it is but adopt the changes she's posted that run from
    if ( empty( $args['title'] ) )
    to
    return $widgetContent;
    }
    (lines 868 - 987 in the current version). Then users can modify the CSS file as they like. The output looks great using her method, but I have to redo the changes after every update (the CSS file hasn't been affected).
