    Hey there,

    Is there anyway to change the twitter icon position? It's now next to the title, but I would like to have it right before the actual tweet and I would also like to change the font size. I saw the other support thread about changing styles and it is referred to change this: `ul.really_simple_twitter_widget { /* your stuff */ }
    ul.really_simple_twitter_widget li { /* your stuff */ }`

    but how can you change it when there is no stylesheet? And if I create a style.css in the plugin folder, how could I load it?

    Hi naastje,
    you can add the CSS rules directly in the style.css file of your theme.

    As for the Twitter icon near to the tweets,you can try a CSS like this:

    ul.really_simple_twitter_widget li {
    padding-left: 18px;
      background: url(wp-content/plugins/really-simple-twitter-feed-widget/twitter_small.png) no-repeat;
      list-style: none;

    I'm having the same problem. I've just installed it and it's working, but the size of the fonts is all wrong...I didn't create my blog, a friend helped me so I don't even know where to find the style sheet (gulp!)

    But if you could kindly let me know
    a. where style sheet is located
    b. what code I need to put into it to change the font so that twitter feed looks like rest of page

    I'm at:


    Many thanks

    Hi Delia,
    you should be able to edit your file from the WordPress backend, going in Appearance->Editor and selecting "style.css".

    For what I can see, the font and links are already styled fine; if you want more spacing between the tweets you can add a line like this:

    ul.really_simple_twitter_widget li { border-bottom: 1px dotted #ccc; padding: 15px 0 15px; }

    I suggest you to talk to your friend for more advanced edit :)

    Hi, looks good to me, but we're probably on different browsers/devices.
    You can increase the font size adding a rule like this:
    ul.really_simple_twitter_widget li { font-size:14px; }

    Thanks...my only worry is how/where do I add all this code. Will it be obvious? (About to go in...)

    I'm very grateful to you!
