Changing font size on widget (2 posts)

    Hi

    I'm an absolute beginner, so please speak slowly...

    Building a website for my kids' child care centre, it's a work in progress here:
    http://www.virginiaparkchildcare.com.au/beta

    It's using Weaver ii. We wanted a vertical menu on the left, so installed a Vertical Menu Widget plug-in (http://wizardinternetsolutions.com/plugins/vertical-menu-widget/)

    All good, except I cannot figure out how to change the font size on that side menu. (Welcome, our team etc.)

    Everything else I need to change - colours, bolding, bullets etc. - I've been able to do via the theme config options without having to dip into the code, so I expected font size to be configurable the same
    way, but maybe not?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    A few things:
    Weaver already has the possibility to create a vertical menu using the Custom menu found in Appearnce > Widgets so no need for a plugin there.
    Weaver II Pro has even more possibilities, including an advanced Weaver II pro Vertical menu with more elaborate styling and options.

    If your Plugin does not offer styling options you can always add custom CSS rules in the Advanced options > Head section > Custom CSS rule box of Weaver.
    This will require you use the developer tools of your borwser to check your menu classes. If you are not familiar with the process, you can read the thread below on the Weaver forum:
    http://forum.weavertheme.com/discussion/1207/basic-tips-on-using-the-developer-tools-like-firebug-to-resolve-styling-issues-#Item_2
    as well as other thread in that tutorial discussion section.
    For example, your widget has the id #vert_menu_widget-2 so to change the font size, you would add the rule below:
    #vert_menu_widget-2 {font-size:150%;}
    with any value that works.
    For further support, I suggest you join us at the Weaver forum, you will have a lot more listeners :)
