Need to Adjust Footer Widget Width (4 posts)

    Hi:

    New user. I am using the Brunelleschi theme, which has four footer widget areas. What I would like to do is widen the width of each widget area (which I assume would mean that I would be using fewer than all four of the widget areas, which is fine). Don't know anything beyond how to install plugins...here is the website url: dwilsonlegal.com.

    I'm sure its a basic fix, but any help would be great.

    You should create a Child theme to make your changes. If you do not, all of your changes will be lost if you update your theme.

    Try adding this to the end of style.css:

    #footer .widget-area { width: 30%; }

    Awesome! Worked like a charm.

    Could I also change the height of the footer area in the same way?

    I also took your advice and created a child theme.

    Looks like you already found the answer to the height question ( Yes, just add height: 80px; to the rule).

    If that takes care of your problem, please use the dropdown on the right to mark this topic 'Resolved' so that anyone else with this question can see that there is a solution.
