Click to start download
- Upload the folder /widget-css-classes/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
- Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
- Configure the settings under Settings > Widget CSS Classes
- Visit Appearance > Widgets to add or change the custom classes and ids for a widget.
- Expand the appropriate widget in the desired sidebar.
- You’ll see a field labeled CSS Class. Depending on your settings, this will be a text field and/or checkboxes.
- If you are using the text field you can enter multiple class names by separating them with a space.
- If you’ve enabled the id field, you will see a text field called CSS ID.
Why aren’t the classes showing up in my widget?
You need to make sure you have an HTML element defined for
after_widget in your active theme’s
usually located in your theme’s functions.php (/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/functions.php).
This HTML element must have class and id attributes. This plugin will not work if
after_widget are blank.
'name' => 'Sidebar',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h2 class="widget-title">',
'after_title' => '</h2>'
How do I add the CSS for my custom class?
There are two ways:
- Edit your theme’s style.css file (usually located in /wp-content/themes/yourtheme/).
- Use a plugin such as Simple Custom CSS.
How I export the Settings?
You can export the Settings from Settings > Widget CSS Classes > Import/Export.
