Editing Widget Appearance (9 posts)

    Hi folks

    I've activated three widgets in my theme, the Erudite. They look dreadful: http://www.exquisiteterror.com, scroll down, click on 'further information'.

    I'd like to centralise the titles of these widgets. And I'd like to have a line between those Tweets. How can I edit these?

    I also have a question about the calendar widget. I've only posted this month, but as time goes on, will it let me scroll through months?

    Thank you.

    centralise title:

    for instance, add something like this to the end of style css:
    #footer-wrap-inner h3.widgettitle { text-align: center; }

    line between tweets:

    for instance, add something like this to the end of style css:
    .widget_twitter .tweets li { border-bottom: 1px solid #777; padding-top: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px; }

    Hmm, that doesn't work here, as the guy who designed the theme has his style.css elsewhere.

    footer-wrap-inner h3.widgettitle a { text-align: center; } see if adding in the "a" element makes a difference...

    #footer-wrap-inner h3.widgettitle a { text-align: center; }

    your stylesheet is located in the /css subfolder of your theme:

    /css/erudite.css

    (which you may not be able to edit from 'appearance' 'editor')

    -----
    if this does not work for you, you could try to activate style.css of your theme by adding a line like this:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    before the line beginning with:
    <!--[if lte IE 6]> <link rel="stylesheet" hr.....

    in header.php near the top.

    and then add your custom styles into style.css of your theme.

    be aware though that changes you make to your theme directly will possibly/probably be lost when you upgrade the theme. might be better to create a child theme and use that for your tweaks...

    My appearance widget page no longer has the right hand side of the page that shows my existing widgets, and allows me to remove or edit them. All I can do is add new widgets.

    I just reloaded all of 3.2.1 to see if that would help but it didn't. I'm using theme twenty ten.

    My real and second problem is that I need to add code to my feedburner widget so that the email subscriptions can be enabled again. It stopped working a month ago.

    Thank you for any help. I've been trying to solve these problems all day.
