[resolved] Tabbed Widget Date/Title overlap (6 posts)

    Hey y'all

    I have the Sahifa Theme 3.0.4 or something like that I believe, and I have a small issue that maybe someone can help me correct.

    There is a tabbed widget that displays Popular Posts, Recent Posts, Tags, and Comments...

    But the popular post listings overlap my title and date as shown in this screenshot:

    If anyone knows where I should start through the coding it would be greatly appreciated.

    a screenshot is unfortunately not useful for troubleshooting formatting probems;

    can you post a live link to the site where the problem can be inspected?

    you could try to use a browser inspection tool (such as Firebug) to find out where this formatting comes from.

    assuming that the site linked to your username has the problem:

    might be caused by the very small line-height in style.css, here:

    .widget-container li {
    			background:url(images/sidebar-bullet.png) no-repeat left 8px;
    			padding: 0 0 5px 0px;
    			line-height: 1px;
    			overflow: hidden;
    		}

    please contact the theme's developer for further support (via themeforest ?);

    Okay thank you so much for the timely response alchymyth. And yes the site is freenationnews.com. I will get firebug and also contact the theme dev for further details. Thank you!

    **UPDATE**

    THANK YOU ALCHYMYTH

    Not sure why you decided to reply to my thread, but it solved the issue, you are a savior! You probably saved me a good 10 hours trying to solve this issue, but god bless.

    How did you diagnose it so quick? Through firebug?

    But anyways the issue ha been solved I changed the line heigh to 20px, and the date came out from underneath. Thank you!

    by the time, I found out that you are using a commercially supported theme, I had also found the possible cause of the overlapping text; so it was a no-brainer to post the css.

    if this is from the unedited theme, please pass the solution on to the developer.

    I prefer working with Firefox' web developer add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-developer/
