Support » Fixing WordPress » Add background colour to my twitter feed

  • I hope I’m posting this in the right category – apologies if not. I’m sure there is a simple answer to this. I’m not very familiar with CSS coding, but basically want to create a wraparound dark background to my tweets in the sidebar here: http://test.petergostelow.com/

    Something like what has been achieved here: http://www.leonmccarron.com/

    I basically want the tweets to stand out more. If this is CSS coding, can someone tell me how/where to write it into the twitter plugin editing for a novice.

    Many thanks

    Peter

  • This will put a background color around just the actual tweets area:

    ul,really_simple_twitter_widget {
      background: #xxxxxx;
    }

    There’s not an easy way to also color the surrounding space — because there is no specific class or id.

    For further help, you’ll likely need to go to Elegant Themes for help — as commercial themes are not supported here.

    Thanks, I just tried that and now the plugin editor reads this:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘,’ in C:\inetpub\sites\test.petergostelow.com\wp-content\plugins\really-simple-twitter-feed-widget\really_simple_twitter_widget.php on line 35

    I’m not sure where in the plugin editor CSS to add:
    ul,really_simple_twitter_widget {
    background: #000000;
    }

    The plugin is deactivated with this placed in.

    Hope that makes sense

    You would add the CSS code in the style.css file. Do not do anything with the plug-in.

    Thanks, that’s worked. Now I have to find the CSS code to make the edges of those boxes rounded and how to change the colour of the text within the boxes. Any help?
