But pseudo elements are ridiculously powerful with CSS. ;) </p> simonafilote on "style individual widget" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/style-individual-widget#post-24119 Mon, 05 Dec 2011 14:52:57 +0000 simonafilote 24119@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>Hi there</p> <p>I'm using Thematic and I've been trying to style the 'recent entries' widget to make it look similar to the post-it widgets from Intaglio theme. To accomplish that, Intaglio theme uses three background images to create the post-it, individually styling the widget's header, content area, and footer.</p> <p>I've managed to add the background image to the widget's header using the code below, but I'm stuck and can't manage to add the background image to the widget's content and footer area. Any idea if I can accomplish that just by using CSS?</p> <pre><code>#secondary .widget_recent_entries .widgettitle { background: url(&quot;images/widget_head.gif&quot;) no-repeat scroll left center transparent; height: 37px; padding: 20px 0 0 10px; }</code></pre> <p>I've tried several codes to add background to the widget's content area, but nothing seems to work. </p> <pre><code>#secondary .widget_recent_entries .widgetcontainer{ background: red; padding:0 0 0 7px; width:287px; margin-bottom: 15px; }</code></pre> <p>I would appreciate a hint.<br /> My blog is: <a href="http://crumbs-of-life.net/" rel="nofollow">http://crumbs-of-life.net/</a></p> <p>Simona </p> simonafilote on "Adding images next to postfooter elements" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/adding-images-next-to-postfooter-elements#post-23664 Tue, 01 Nov 2011 17:40:28 +0000 simonafilote 23664@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>Hey, you were right, I removed the dots and it worked!

In fact I had taken a look at the example site's CSS through Firebug, and what I found is the following:</p> <p>To add an image besides the tag links, I guess this is the code. I added it in my style.css and that created some space right before the tag-links in the postfooter where the small image should come, but the image itself doesn't appear...what am I missing? I double checked the image name to make sure it's right.</p> <p>#content .entry-utility .tag-links {<br /> background: url("../images/pencil6.png") no-repeat scroll 4px 1px #FFFFFF;<br /> padding: 0 8px 0 32px;<br /> }</p> <p>---------<br /> To add the image before the comment count, I copy/pasted this code in the style.css but there is no effect at the frontend...not even some space as in the first case.</p> <p>#content .entry-utility .comment-link {<br /> background: url("../images/pencil1.png") no-repeat scroll 0 2px #FFFFFF;<br /> padding: 0 11px 0 18px;<br /> }</p> <p>What do you think?</p> <p>Simona </p> helgatheviking on "Adding images next to postfooter elements" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/adding-images-next-to-postfooter-elements#post-23657 Mon, 31 Oct 2011 15:28:12 +0000 helgatheviking 23657@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>why don't you take <a href="http://getfirebug.com" rel="nofollow">http://getfirebug.com</a> or chrome's developer tools and examine what that site is doing? and then copy it? it is only a little CSS background image in conjunction with some left padding. </p> simonafilote on "Adding images next to postfooter elements" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/adding-images-next-to-postfooter-elements#post-23656 Mon, 31 Oct 2011 12:11:31 +0000 simonafilote 23656@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>I've just started with WP and I'm a complete dummy with CSS and PHP but yet I'm keen to customise and style the blog theme as I wish... </p> <p>I've been searching for days for some solution to add a small speech bubble next to the comments count displayed in the postfooter of each post.
