    Hi Jason,
    I hope I aint sucking the life outta ya. ;(

    I have a block of text with some images that is really copyright material or data.

    1. I tried adding it to the copyright data section but I cant get formatting html to hold.
    2. I also tried adding it to the “ads below footer” location and I cant get html formatting to hold there either.
    3. I also tried to add a text widget with the formatted data to the “ads below footer” location and that did not work.

    I created a content area to show you what I want the data to look like as far as layout. However, i want the text to be the size of the text in the copyright area.

    I dont see a way to put a footer content area directly below the copyright area and then a way to reduce the text size to the copyright text size.

    I took a screen shot to show you.

    Can you make a suggestion please?
    Happy trails, Mike Foate

    Hi Jason,
    Have I been classified as the “boy who cried wolf”?
    Thanks, Mike

    So, what you’re basically asking with all that is you want the text below your copyright information to be a different size and to be aligned left instead of centered, right?

    All collapsible widget areas have the content centered, as they’re intended for things like banner ads. This is where your text in the screenshot is located. You can change this with CSS customization.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

    So using this information, try to find the selector that surrounds the area you want to customize and change the text-align CSS property to “left” instead of “center” by putting the Custom CSS into your site. And if you want the text larger or smaller, you need to obviously then use the font-size property, as well, with your CSS.

    Hi Jason,
    I am not a developer and I am trying to do my best. I am sorry for wearing you out. I did try and I entered all that text and images into the Footer Copyright Text box. Which is where I thought it should go. I tried to format it with css but the box seemed to strip all the css tags when I chose Save Options.

    Thats why I tried entering it into the ads below footer area. Thinking I could get the css to work there.

    I’ll quit buggin’ ya now. I totally understand you have to have limits and thanks for all your help now and in the past.
    Happy trails and happy holidays, Mike
