  • Resolved YTC


    I need to change the text size and line spacing of the text in the widget. I see some posts here about adding some CSS but I don’t know exactly what to add where to make this work. I am a beginner and need some specifics as to exactly the coding and where I insert it. Otherwise I really like this plugin and hope to continue to use it – just this one issue. Thank so much ahead of time for responding!

    I am not sure you need to know this, but in case, the website is

    Hey YTC,

    Yes, it is a CSS styling issue most definitely.

    I tried visiting your site and don’t see a way to view a page with a sidebar in it.

    We purposefully made this plugin without styles so you can tweak it to jive with your theme. It’s aimed a bit more at designers and developers. Because every theme is different, I can’t give you advice on your CSS without being able to see it in action.

    Changing the CSS is something you’d do in your theme; most likely, you’ll be able to append it to your styles.css file (or whatever file your theme uses for styles).

    I’d recommend using Firebug or Google Chrome dev tools to isolate the classes you’ll need to style, if you’re familiar with them. If not, you might hit up a friend that does know CSS to help.

    If all else fails, feel free to post a link here and, when we’ve got a moment, we (or another user) will try to give you some more specific advice.

    Thanks for your response. Use this login to see sidebar widget area.

    My theme does have a style.css file. If you could tell me what to insert there, I would be very grateful!!

    Thank you!

    Right now the text is way too large and too much space between lines. It takes over the focus of the sidebar rather than being a nice addition. Thanks!

    Sorry – one more addition… I would love to get rid of the title:Testimonials as I think it is pretty descriptive to see the content and the title distracts. Can this be done as well?

    With the login i gave you, you will be able to see the “About” page and be able to view the sidebar.

    Howdy YTC,

    Try appending this to the bottom of your style.css file:

    #ivycat-testimonial h3 {
    	/* removes header */
    	display: none;
    #ivycat-testimonial .ict-content,
    #ivycat-testimonial footer {
    	font-size: .9em;
    	text-transform: none; /* removes all-caps */
    	line-height: 1.5;

    You can remove the comments.

    If you wish to make font smaller, you can try .8em or smaller. I removed the all-caps for the testimonial because I think it makes it harder to read, but if you wish to make the testimonial in caps, just remove the text-transform line.

    I hope that helps!



    It worked perfectly!! Thank you very much!
