[resolved] class for author on testimonial page? (7 posts)

    I would like to style the author info on the testimonials page for this site. While there is provision for this in the widget I haven't been able to locate an easy handle for the actual page.

    The most recent unsuccessful experiment is article#post-18 div.entry-content div span ~ p { font-style: italic;}

    How can this be accomplished?

    Thank you

    Hey catwingz,

    The main content on that page is not generated from this plugin.

    When using the hms-testimonials shortcode/widget you can do:

    .hms-testimonial-container .author { font-style: italic; }

    I see you already have the hms-testimonials rotating widget in your sidebar set to italicize the author field.

    Ok, I am confused. You say the main content on the page is not generated from the plugin, and yet I am entering the content in the Testimonials section of the Admin that is created by the plugin. In the code the author info shows up in a paragraph tag. If it were entered in the page it would be easy for me to add a class. How is it that we can style the widget content, but not the page? There must be some way?!?

    Can you show me the contents of your page? It should be a shortcode. Is it possible you are using 2 different testimonial plugins?

    Every testimonial is wrapped in a container class (.hms-testimonial-container) and then each section (author, testimonial, website, etc.) also has it's own container so you can style it. The main content does not have any of this.

    Wow, I knew I needed a vacation. This is an epic case of faking myself out, but it's going to have a happy ending.

    Ok, so part of the confusion has been coming from the text placed directly into the page, originally intended as a staging area for populating your plugin. This site has had a really drawn out timeline with a number of extended interruptions. I had forgotten the staging had ever occurred, believing I had completely switched to the plugin. Apologies for mixing you up in that.

    The good part is that now I have another page set up to finish out what I had begun. Your setup is an improvement, and I have *almost* everything styled to match the site now.

    There is one last thing I would like to change, and I don't know if this is coming from the plugin or WordPress. The icon/bar in front of the blockquote is stubbornly grey. I would like to either change it's color or replace it with a different icon. I have run out of time for the day to experiment with background images, the only thing I can think of that I see in my reading.

    Can you point me in the right direction for that? If not, I understand. Either way my client is going to be a happy HMS Testimonial user. Thanks for your patience!

    Ha, yeah sometimes vacations are good. No worries on the mix up.

    As for your issue with the grey bar:

    Line 598 of your themes style.css ( .format-standard blockquote, .type-page blockquote, .comment blockquote ) is setting a thick border-left (not an icon). You can easily change the color on that line or even remove it.

    You can also use a ::before selector to set an icon before the content with CSS.
