    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 – http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    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 :)!
