  • Resolved simbaman64


    In short, I added “<?php do_action(‘icl_language_selector’); ?>” to my header, and now I want to edit the way it looks. I have no idea what I am doing, and tried editing style.css for hours, but have had no luck.
    I would love to be able to change the colors and margin (or some way of shifting it to be centered). Any ideas?

    Thank you for reading, and I hope someone can assist!!

  • Please, anyone. I’ve been trying everything to no avail…

    Have you asked the developer of your commercial theme for help with this?

    A browser tool like Firebug should help you work with CSS – try:

    #lang_sel_list {
        padding-top: 12px;
    #lang_sel_list ul a, #lang_sel_list_list ul a:visited {
        background-color: pink !important;

    Also, if you are modifying theme files, your changes will be lost when the theme is updated. You should be making changes using a child theme –

    You are my css guardian angel Ms.WPYogi.
    Check it out now, it looks great, thanks to you.

    One last followup question. Any idea as to why the top bar gets a little longer when I add this to my child theme (which I did according to your advice). I tried editing padding-bottom, but it didn’t help. Any ideas??

    And thanks again

    Try adding:

    #lang_sel_list {
        height: auto;

    I love you. I cannot tell you how much stress and time you have saved me.
    I know I barely know you, but I can tell you are an amazing person. A giver, who asks for nothing in return. An amazing, kindred spirit. A beautiful, caring person.
    Thank you.

    LOL – well thank you for your kind words. A little CSS goes a long way sometimes :)!
