Esquire Left Text Bubble-

  1. Hello there,

    I am just starting out with an Esquire theme on WordPress, and I'm having trouble figuring out two different issues.

    Firstly - I'm wondering how to customize the left-hand text bubble with the username. I would like the remove the info that currently there and add my own text, links, etc.

    Secondly, and from what I'm reading around this site, I'm not sure if it is possible - but again with the Esquire theme, can the widget section be moved to anywhere on the site other than the footer?

    Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you! :)

  2. What you propose cannot be done without am annually renewable custom design upgrade and the required CSS editing. I hasten to add I don't help with CSS editing. Have you purchased that upgrade?

  3. justaddchica in the yellow text bubble on the top left is your site name. That can be changed at settings > general.

    Just another WordPress.com site is the site tagline. That can also be changed at settings > general.

    The area down around the black bar is the area for a custom menu. Custom menus can be used to give links to static page, or to categories, or even to places offsite using the custom link feature in the custom menu.

    You can't just put "anything" up there though. It is designed for some specific things.

  4. Hi there,

    I haven't purchased the upgrade just yet, as I literally started the blog this evening :) But I was assuming there must be a way to at least remove the "Just another WordPress.com site" line from the yellow text bubble? Thank you!

  5. Ahhhh!!! I see! Thank you for that info :)

  6. I'm sorry I was so off-base on this. Thanks for thesacredpath for straightening me out.

  7. ...And to bother you once more, I notice that there are two small icons for search and rss in this text bubble. Is there any way of changing those icons and/or adding more?

    Thank you again.

  8. @timethief, not off base really as some of the stuff can be done via CSS, it is just that it is quite involved

    It gets a little involved to add things up there, but it can be done. It does require redesign of that entire area to make room for the new stuff, and you always have to be mindful of the total length of that yellow area since if it gets too long, the bottom section could disappear behind the bottom of the browser window and not be accessible since that yellow box is "fixed" in position.

    To do that sort of thing though, it would require the Custom Design Upgrade that timethief referenced.
