    Is there a way (I’m sure there is!) of reducing the size (height) of the text entry boxes in a sidebar widget? Specifically, the Subscriber box at the top of my right sidebar at http://www.MiramichiReader.ca

    Thanks,

    Hi there,

    Try the Widget Titles setting in Customizer > Typography > Widgets.

    Make sure you clear the caching plugin after making the changes.

    Let me know if this helps πŸ™‚

    Maybe there’s been a misunderstanding, Leo. It’s the size of the actual box I want to change, not the widget text itself. I want to reduce the height of the box a little.
    Thanks,

    The height of the box is determined by the content inside of it so I’m not quite sure how that could work?

    If you reduce the size of MailChimp content inside of it, the box should be smaller.

    Let me know if this helps πŸ™‚

    I thought there might be a global GP setting in the theme that controlled this, but it doesn’t look that way. Is there away to control the size of the fonts within a box? I’m looking at the Categories and Archives boxes as well.

    It would require some CSS.

    The title is controlled by the setting I mentioned here:

    Anything else specific you need?

    Please disable the caching plugin while we are trying to help.

    Thanks!

    I know how to change the size of the Widget title. Doing so has no effect on the size of the entry box, either on height or width. As does changing the widget content font size.

    Are you referring to any specific widgets?

    I’m seeing 8 sidebar widgets and all have different heights as the height is determined by the content in it.

    The width, on the other hand, is controlled by the customizer option:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/sidebar-widths/

    Can you let me know which widget you are referring to and what exactly you’d like to happen?

    I think you’re not picking up on what I am asking, Leo. You can close this thread or pass it on to Tom or another support person. I have applied one of the themes in the Site Library and it appears a little differently, and more to my liking.

    I’m just having a hard time understanding what you are after so a little more communication is required.

    If you can specify which widget you are referring to and what you’d like to happen with it, I can most likely help.

    Thanks for your patience πŸ™‚

    Here is a screen capture that (I hope!) illustrates what I was initially requesting:
    Subscribe box
    Note that I want to reduce all text entry boxes, not just the one with the arrow.

    Thanks for the screenshot. It definitely helps to explain it.

    The height of that is controlled by MailChimp:

    Try this CSS:

    .widget #mc_embed_signup .mc-field-group input {
        padding: 4px 0;
    }

    It didn’t appear to make any appreciable difference. I flushed all caches, too.

    Hi there,

    made a slight change to Leo’s code here

    Nada. Thanks for trying, David. It’s really not that important at this point. The change in theme helped as the box is more defined than it was previously.
