  • Resolved TotallyGeeky


    As it says in the title, is there a way to make the plus button menu horizontal instead of vertical drop down? Also, is there a way to make the plus button for it darker?

    Finally, when trying to view comments, it’s nearly impossible to see the check boxes for following the comments and whatnot. (see here: Any way to add a background to that, or to change the text color for comments?

    Not really sure how it would work as a horizontal menu… this is an advanced customization, so I can’t tell you off the top of my head, but you’d need to edit the js/toggle.js file to slide #secondary horizontally, instead of using slideToggle.

    You can read more about changing the opacity of selectors in the theme (in this case, .sidebar-link) here:

    The comment form display is rendered by Jetpack on your site. Try going to Settings -> Discussion, scroll to the bottom, and you should see an option to change the color scheme to Light, such that you can see the form fields.

    If that doesn’t work, I would check out Jetpack support here.

    Sorry, to piggyback on the post (I’ll make a new post if there is a solution), but is there a simple way to move the + circle somewhere, say to the left or right of the screen?

    I’m not sure how that would work aesthetically, but if it’s a quick-fix, I’d like to experiment.

    @miharbio, you can move the circle icon wherever you’d like using CSS in a child theme or custom CSS plugin. Change the margins, positioning, or float properties to move it where you’d like.

    In general, it’s a good rule of thumb to make your own topic unless your question is the same as the OP. Much easier to keep track of support threads that way.

    This just might be a work-around, or another solution, but I got it to work by adding the following stuff in their prospective categories in the CSS.

    #secondary .widget-column {
    width: 100%;
    #secondary .widget {
    width: 33%;
    float: left;

    Also, to change the plus color I ended up having to change background color in .sidebar-link for anyone wondering, and the transparent theme for the comments box works best.

    thanks! gonna try this all out…

    the forum here is wonderfully helpful, but I feel like there could be a more efficient way to give support… instead of bugging the developers so much..

    often my biggest problem is knowing what to target from the style.css

    I’d post here regardless, and try also posting on StackOverflow. Post here since you’ll be asking people who also using or are familiar with the theme, and over there because you’re querying a lot people who are fairly familiar with code.
