Support » Fixing WordPress » WP e-Commerce Change Font Size/Color of Categories

  • I have installed the WP – eCommerce plugin for my site and I have the “Product Category” widget placed in my ‘Main Sidebar” which happens to be my left side navigation.

    I would like to change the font color(too light), and spacing between these category headings and sub categories that populate on my left nav. There is too much vertical spacing between the categories and subcategories.

    How can I do this?

  • Try adding this to your custom CSS:

    .widget ul.wpsc_categories li a {
        color: black;
    .widget ul.wpsc_categories {
        margin: .5em 0;

    Change the black to something else if you prefer and adjust the .5 as you like as well.

    Thank you for your help, you solved my issues perfectly. Do you know if there is a way for me to change the font size/color to differ between the categories and sub categories?

    (i.e. Change the font size between the main category ‘seating’ and the sub categories ‘breakroom’, ‘ergonomic’, and ‘guest’ per my website.


    Try this for the top-level categories:

    .widget ul.wpsc_top_level_categories li a {
       styles here;

    For the sub-categories try:

    .widget ul.wpsc_second_level_categories li a {
       styles here;

    I haven’t been able to get it to work.

    I tried:

    .widget ul.wpsc_top_level_categories li a {
    font size: 14px;

    .widget ul.wpsc_second_level_categories li a {
    font size: 11px;

    Any thoughts?

    Try font-size – note the hyphen.

    That worked, thank you! You have been extremely helpful.

    I’m not sure if I should start a new thread but I am also having issues changing the font size of my drop down menus. The font size is way too large as you can see under ‘How to buy furniture’ in my top navigation.

    Do you know how I can change this font size? or should I start a new thread on the forums for this issue?


    Do you know if I can change the color in the Pagination Settings ?
    Thanks !!
