Support » Fixing WordPress » How to indent content in the sidebar

  • Resolved gsinibaldi



    I have a mailing list plugin from Mailchimp installed in my side bar here:

    I’d like to indent the fields to be in line with the rest of the indentations in the sidebar. Where do i do this? I’m not sure which file to modify. I looked at sidebar.php but that doesnt seem like its it. Any ideas?

    Thanks for your help

  • Try adding:

    #mc_signup_form {padding-left:30px;}

    to the bottom of style.css.

    I tried that and didnt have any luck…

    Remember to press CTRL and F5 simultaneously when viewing an updated page/site. Or try emptying your browser cache. This should ensure that your web browser fetches a fresh copy of the page rather than serving up an out-dated copy from your own cache.

    Also disable/deactivate any caching plugin(s).

    I tried refreshing to no avail.

    How do I tell which plugins utilize the cache? Does this mean if I use such plugins I cant have the indent the way I’d like?

    Thanks for your help

    the style that @esmi rightly suggested gets overwritten by the embedded styles of the plugin, which has a padding for the same css id.

    you can try and force it:

    #mc_signup_form {padding-left: 30px!important;}

    or use margin instead of padding:

    #mc_signup_form {margin-left: 30px;}

    Margin did it!

    Thanks so much
