  • Hey Vovafeldman/RatingWidget Team

    This plugin is great and we love it so far, although we are coming across a minor issue with the “Top Rated” Sidebar Widget CSS. Currently, the sidebar widget loads up the “Top Rated” post in a bullet format. We have managed to figure out the css code needed to make the right changes best suited to our needs and liking but this new code is being over looked by it’s previous matching counterpart which seem to be offsite (

    Bullet Format:

    Our Changes via FireBug:

    The OG Code: .rw-ui-content-recommendation-groups {
        list-style: none outside none !important;
        margin: 0 !important;
        padding: 0 !important;

    The Improved Code: .rw-ui-content-recommendation-groups {
        list-style: none inside none !important;
        margin: 0 -35px !important;
        padding: 0 !important;
        width: 245px;

    In FireBug, you can see both CSS codes, the Original (offsite, on top of our needed CSS code (Theme Style.css) right below it. Not only does our code show up, it works when we delete the OG CSS code via FireBug. Any thoughts on how to override the recommended.css or how to resolve this minor issue?

    We’d rather keep our site withheld at the moment because it’s still in development but we’d be more than willing to send it to you via email or some other form of contact if it is of need to you. We’d really appreciate any help from you on this great plugin or the community at this point because we can’t seem to resolve this issue. Thank you for your time.

  • We would like to politely inform the RatingWidget Team and others that we have switched to different sidebar manager (Custom Sidebar by WPMU Dev from Simple Page Sidebars) and the Top Rating sidebar issue has been resolved. Hopefully that helps others who may have this minor issue. We will be marking this thread as resolved.

    Btw, we still have our new CSS changes regarding the Top-Rating widget applied in our Style.css, so we are unsure if the WPMU Sidebar just works better with Top-Rating and the original is working now or if the WPMU Sidebar allows the new CSS changes to be effectively applied.

    We will be keep the new CSS however, as why try to fix something that ain’t broke (…anymore lol).

    False alarm – this issue still stands. A quick refresh showed us that it was just a temporary fluke as the page was taking longer than usual to load up. The RatingWidget is still in bullet point format.

    Patiently waiting for any assistance or suggestions. Thank You.

    I think you have some external rule that adds the bullet. Can you please share a link to a page with the Top-Rated Widget so we can check that for you.

    Sure, where’s the support email we can share the link to or should we send it via the “Contact Us” under (Report an Issue/Other) located on the RatingWidget website?

    As mentioned, we are still in development and are trying our best to take note of where and how we share our site link. Thanks for your assistance.

    P.S. – Although, Vovafeldman, we do wonder if sharing our link via the “Contact Us” will take another couple of days? Considering, we perceive this to be a very minor issue that may just be getting overlooked (as you mentioned perhaps an external rule). We would love to receive some help from you or anyone else from the community to be able to resolve this as soon as possible and enjoy the plugin to the fullest.
