Customizing the mini post list widget

    Hello, I really love the Akita theme!
    In the Mini Post List Widget, is there a way to change the thumbnail size to fill the full width of the sidebar instead of floating it to the left? I would like to have the post title underneath instead of on the side … and also pull the post excerpt below the title?

    I want a look similar to your News Scroller, only without the scrolling (which is very cool by the way).

    Hello,

    Apologies, but no, there’s no feature for these things you’re asking about, unfortunately. These are customizations you’d need to make to the theme.

    If you want to edit dimensions of crop sizes, checkout this article: http://dev.themeblvd.com/tutorial/crop-sizes/ — (Mini post list uses the square_* sizes)

    If you want to actually edit the output of the Mini post list, you’d want to edit the function “themeblvd_get_mini_post_list” found in /framework/frontend/functions/parts.php: http://dev.themeblvd.com/tutorial/editing-framework-functions/

    And then as far as un-floating images or changing the styles, these would be CSS customizations — 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.
