Support » Theme: Duena » Widget size/ blog posts

  • Since I’ve had so much luck here with the support I have another question. I’m trying to shrink the width and height of my widgets and enlarge the post width a little bit. I would like for my featured image area to resize to the size of the image uploaded. Instead of right now the image resizes with the size of the featured image area. Where in the CSS do I need to adjust these parameters. Thanks for any assistance.

  • This theme is responsive one, so its not that easy to change width by hand, because od the different screen and span sizes. This is much easier apporoach. This should work for most Bootstrap responsive themes (with some tag changes)
    Install and activate RTFR.
    Add these replacements to it (the model is:
    |string to be replaced| => |replacement string| – do not add the vertical lines in the boxes, I just used them as delimiters for the strings;
    string to be replaced goes in the left box,
    replacement string goes in the right box,
    and each line is a separate replacement):

    |widget-area span4| => |widget-area span3|
    |<div id="primary" class="span7 right">| => |<div id="primary" class="span8 right">|

    No! Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.

    With this plugin he will not change child theme or main theme.

    *Looks at that plugin’s description*

    I see why you’d say that and yes, you’re correct that that plugin won’t change the files just the output but using a child theme or a custom CSS plugin really is a more supportable idea.

    If you use and activate a child theme then even if you disable all of your plugins (as is sometimes required for troubleshooting) then your changes will still be active.

    I agree, its just much easier with the plugin, as I said before. It would be nice to see option to change each sidebar size integrated in Duena theme.

    I have a child theme installed. I have had one so no problems there!! 🙂 I will give this plug in a shot and let you know how it turns out. Thanks again for all the help. Also it would be a nice added option to the theme.

    I used the changes you suggested to my CSS but I did not like the outcomes.. Nothing wrong with the code I just realized I dont mind the original widget size. I would still like the feature image area to change with the size of the image. Instead of the other way around. Haven’t found anything to fix that yet.
