[resolved] How to adjust widget's field width? (4 posts)

    My problem is that the field where one puts an email to subscribe is bigger the my widgets area so the field stands out.

    I know it can be easily corrected by changing width of the input box from set to auto but I don't know in which file (php or css?) and which part of the code I should make the changes.

    On the other hand, variety of WP themes suggest to make input field "width: auto" as a default setting, so this can be fixed in a new version of this plugin as well (in that way problem is gone and with plugin updates I won't have to change it again). There is no point of making this input field as a set value.

    Every field has a specific class, so you can match them in a css file or adding specific css to your blog with a plugin like header and foot which lets to add code to the head section.

    Probably your theme does not skin correctly the new field types. If possible just copy the generated form and use it directly in the widget changing the email field from type="email" to type="text".

    Alternatively, find in your css where the input[type=text] is defined and add the input[type=email].

    OK, found Header and Footer plugin - thanks for the tip!

    Will be checking how to use it. Hopefully it will allow me to do things I can't because lack of orientation in css or php topic. Could you explain to me or point forward to a good source on that matter?
    If I'd ignore the plugin you mentioned, I have few basic questions that I must know first but don't know how to find them quickly.

    1) if I write/copy a custom css, do I create a new file from the scratch or edit a proper one (in second case which one and in which place?)
    2) where should be this new file be placed? in WP, woocommerce, plugin, theme directory? in which folder specifically?
    3) if I create a custom css, do I need to change some things in php to link it to a new file or css line or is it enough to put a file in right place?
    4) how do I recognize in which place of a code should I add my code if I add something new?

    I am aware that you can't guide me step by step, because it would take too much of your time. But if you know some site where I can quickly find that stuff without extensive reading, I would appreciate.

    I'm not so retarded in this area not to be able to make some custom cod fixes on my own (even in php) just by playing with it and experimenting. However such a route takes LOOOOOOT of time and I don't have such luxury lately.

    And thanks for response. I hope I will be able to dig deep enough to follow with the changes you suggested.
