Support » Plugin: Free Quotation » Display Widget title – style

    I need to use a Widget title but the title shown with FQ is using a custom style, just a simple <h3> which shows a giant text. Not having a custom class I can’t customize it with my own custom CSS.
    Instead it should probably use something like <h1 class=”widget-title”>MY WIDGET TITLE</h1> so that it has the same style as the other titles.

    Also the customization defined in the FQ settings doesnt solve my problem because it doesnt create a custom class and I cannot change the color, use white instead of gray. And in any case it woud force me to update it whenever I change the style of the site.

    Hi,

    I can prepare next version of FQ with filed for custom class, and possibility to choose h1/h2/h3/h4/h5/h6. After you confirm this specification I need 1-3 days to implement it.

    It solve your problem?

    Great!

    My personal need is to just have the same widget title style used by all other widgets, which it seems to be <h1 class=”widget-title”>.
    But I’m not sure if this is defined only in Theme TwentyFourteen or if it is a basic specification for WordPress.
    If it is a general definition for all themes then I would use that style so that FQ will use the same Title even when changing the Theme style.

    But probably the standard way is to call a wordpress function to register/echo a the widget with the correct style setting rather than hardcode it in the plugin. So that it can be well integrated with other plugins. I would try that path.
    For example here someone asked for having a different background for each Widget title of the site (maximum customization), it means that it would be possible for WordPress to generate custom definitions regardless of the specific plugin:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-different-widget-title-backgrounds?replies=7

    In my case I will use two FQ widgets on the side bar, for different kind quotes. No need to have that kind of customization.
    Just my 2 cents for choosing the best implementation.

    Generally – it’s depend what was defined by theme developer.

    Ok – I will add option to choose header value and header class. It should solve problem for all themes.

    Ok- in version 3.1.4 this feature is implemented.

    If it’s all what you nead pleas mark this topic like resolved.

    (default options are like now used – it means, that nobody else will see any differences without edit this options)

    I tried the latest version 3.1.4.

    Unfortunately I wasn’t able to set the custom class that is used as the default widget for twentyfourteen (string too long, sort of “primary-sidebar widget widget_text widget-title”) or in any case what I tried didn’t worked. Unable to have the Title look the same as all other Widget titles.

    The only solution was to use a Custom CSS, with a new class called “Free-Quotation_title” (to be specified as FQ class header). Of course if I change something in the theme I have to update that custom CSS. It’s a minor issue.

    Also I noticed that “Notes” and “Author” use the same style “Free-Quotation_author”. So when I add a bottom margin to the Notes (because I want some extra space after after the Widget) then I get that extra space also between Author and Note. A minor issue.

    In any case Thank you for the improved version,
    Andrea

    OK – in 3.1.5 I will add margin before/after widget to fulfill all users needs.

    What more – I can give longer filed for classes in this version. Thanks for reply!

    I noticed that “author” and “notes” uses the same class. I would give the option to separate them (different classes). It offers more flexibility.

    Then if I need to add a specific margin I can do it to the note class only. So you don’t have to add custom margins.

    It’s just an extra, not really necessary for me.

    Yes – but it doesn’t solve situation when you doesn’t have notes and you have only ‘author’ and ‘date’ . When I add additional option – it solve this problem.
