Facebook Widget

    I have added the Facebook like widget to out site, but would like to get rid of the ugly boarder that the widget adds. I thought this would be an easy fix with custom css. Using firebug in firefox I found the elements I needed to change, the changes in firebug worked great, but I am struggling to reference it in the custom css editor to apply the changes.

    The code I edited in firebug was as follows:

    .fbConnectWidgetTopmost {border:none!important;}

    The css is generated by facebook, I assume this is why I am having problems overriding it. I am sure this issue has come up before but had no luck finding a solution for wordpress.com. Does anyone have a solution?

    The blog I need help with is blog.englishlakes.co.uk.



    Hmm I just joined but I’m trying to figure out how to get the Facebook widget… Have you tried Appearances or maybe Themes? :) I’m sorry I’m probably not much help…



    This is the CSS forun and your question is not a CSS editing question. Please start your own thread in the support forum by using this link > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/support#postform



    The site linked to your username is not a free hosted WordPress.com blog and this forum is only for free hosted WordPress.com bloggers ,who have purchased a custom design (CSS editing upgrade). We cannot help you here with that site. You must post to http://wordpress.org/support/ for assistance as that’s the correct forum for your software. WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences


    @timethief thanks for your help, but the site is a wordpress.com blog – I am not sure why that site is displaying in my profile link, or how to get rid of it. Please see http://gravatar.com/englishlakesblog for a link to it.



    http://blog.englishlakes.co.uk/ is the blog.

    I’m afraid I don’t know CSS editing and won’t be able to help you with the problem, but at least I can provide a live link.

    PS: Gravatar itself made this change. I hate it.


    The Facebook like widget styles are set from a different domain (facebook.com) and so they cannot be edited with CSS only on the WordPress.com side.

    You can update your profile think by updating the Website field on your Users → Personal Settings page if you’d like.


    That is a shame as it does look a bit of a mess. Perhaps I will have to leave the facebook widget out.
