In the Widget Styles section of the SNO Design Options page, you will see that one of the widget styles is set to be the default style for your SNO widgets and one for your non-SNO widgets. This is the style of widget that will be used by default for all WordPress and Plugin widgets. All of the SNO widgets, though, have a style override option that allows you not only to set the widget to any of the six styles, but also to further customize any of the five variables. Any widgets that don’t have the name “SNO” in the title will always display in the default style.
Understanding Widget Style Options
Each widget on your site can be set to one of the widget styles. You can see all the different widget styles and examples here. Each style is somewhat different and allows you to change specific variables, such as:
- Title Bar Color
- Title Bar Text Color
- Title Bar Size
- Border Color
- Body Background Color
- Border Thickness
- Title Bar Background
- Title Bar Pattern
Setting Default Widget Styles
- Click on SNO Design Options under the Appearance tab on the left side of your WordPress dashboard.
- Open the Widget Styles section.
- Use the color picking tools to set the colors and other dropdown menus to change the settings for each of the six widget styles.
- In the left column, select a default style for your SNO widgets and your non-SNO widgets.
- Click Save All Settings under the color picker at the right.
Customizing Each Widget’s Style and Appearance
All of the SNO widgets have a style override option that allows you not only to set the widget to any of the six styles, but also to further customize any of a widget's individual variables. To customize the appearance of any SNO widget, click on Widgets under Appearance, open the widget area containing the widget you wish to customize, then open the widget to configure the settings as you prefer, and click Save. Any widgets that don’t have the name “SNO” in the title will always display in the default style.
Resetting SNO Widget Styles
Because the SNO widgets are individually set to a specific style in their settings, their styles won’t change when you set new SNO widget styles on the SNO Design Options page. In order to force all SNO widgets back to the style on the SNO Design Options page, you can use the SNO Widget Style Reset option––simply pick a new style, click Save All Settings, and all SNO widgets will now display in the new style.
