Help needed - How to customise Moka Theme

  1. Hi
    Please can someone advise me.. Im totally new to wordpress with no experience or knowledge of how css works. Ive always been a blogger girl!

    I have moved my blog to wordpress and purchased the Moka theme and the customisation option so am able to make changes to the css of my blog - HOWEVER I am utterly hopeless!

    I need to widen the side bar as my site title is cut off and the date/time is overlapping the title.
    I would also like to move my social media link widgets to the top of my sidebar under my blog description - and also add a photo of myself in between the two.

    Please could some explain to me in idiot proof terms how to do this please. My blog is http://www.ileftmyheartinyorkshire.com

    Thanks in advance! :)

    The blog I need help with is ileftmyheartinyorkshire.com.

  2. Well, first of all, you need to post CSS requests in the CSS forum. Secondly, there are some CSS references at the top of that forum and it's advisable to read them so you have some knowledge of how to tinker. Thirdly, there is no www in your URL. It is http://ileftmyheartinyorkshire.com/

    I will flag this so that staff can move it to the CSS forum.

  3. Thank you, as I said I have no experience with wordpress, css or the relevant forums but thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Hopefully someone there will be of help.

  4. To widen your sidebar, add the following code into your css editor: (from your dashboard click appearance>customize and then from the customizer click "CSS" in the menu on the right)

    .admin-bar #sidebar-wrap {
    width: 30%;
    }

    I would need to be able to tinker a bit to figure out your other two requests, and Moka is a premium theme, so I'm not able to do that. However, premium themes include assistance directly from the theme designer here: http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/forum/moka

    Good luck!

  5. It looks like youv'e gotten help with this in the CSS forum:
