FAQ

Where can I change the image size?

The image sizes are definied in the Media Settings of WordPress options. The default are:

  • Thumbnail 150px x 150px max
  • Medium 300px x 300px max
  • Large 640px x 640px max

You can change the image size directly from WordPress Media Settings.

How can I change the styles?

You can define the stylesheet in your style.css file (located in wp-content/themes/your-theme/style.css), the widget has its own CSS classes (you can see it with Firebug, Web Inspector, Dragonfly or tools like that).
For example if you want to change the position of thumbnail you can define a class like:

.cresta-post-widget img {
    margin: 0 auto;
    display: block;
}

Or if you want to change some options of the post title (H3 is the default post title heading tag, but it can be changed from the widget settings):

.cresta-post-widget h3 {
    text-transform: uppercase;
    text-decoration: underline;
}
Can I change the date format?

The date format is taken directly from the WordPress General Settings. To change it just go to WordPress Main Menu -> Settings -> General -> Date Format
