Add link to footer & adjust sidebar width: Able theme

  1. Hi,

    I need to make a couple of tweaks to my blog's appearance. I'm a CSS newbie but I do have the Custom Design upgrade.

    I need to move the link to the privacy policy (currently in the footer menu) so it's inline with the WordPress site/theme credits in the footer, with a separator between (ie. Privacy policy | Blog at WordPress.com | Customized Able theme). I'll then remove the footer menu altogether. Can someone please help me out with the correct code for the Able theme?

    I also need to reduce the padding-right value of the sidebar.

    Any help much appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is signetlawyers.wordpress.com.

  2. For the footer menu.

    There is a footer menu in place for privacy and another element for the WordPress credits. Check widgets and make sure you don't have a footer widget inserting the site info. Or it could be coded into the footer.php file.

    The class around the WordPress Credits is .site-info. So you could add those two items to your footer menu and display none on the site-info.

    .site-info {<br /> display: none;<br /> }

    The sidebar has a padding of 26px. If you add this to your css and change the second value then you can edit the space to the right.

    #tertiary {<br /> padding: 26px 26px 26px 26px;<br /> }

  3. That worked perfectly! Thanks so much for your help.

  4. @casualmagic: Your may have better luck with code formatting if you use backticks (the other symbol on the ~ key on most keyboards) to surround your code examples, rather than the tag.

  5. Oops, that was supposed to be the "code" tag, and of course the forums interpreted it as the actual tag.

  6. @andrewcpht I don't know why the br tags are showing there. It happens when I put a hard return inside the code tag. I was looking for a forum how to but didn't find an explanation.

  7. Yeah, for some reason, it happens with the code tag, but not with backticks. I've switched over to those, and it works just fine.

  8. testing it out.

    .test {
    background: url(sweeturl.jpg);
    }
