Hello Pixelshaw,

Unfortunately there isn't a way to do this with the Yola text widget - you can only adjust the margins on the text widget that adjusts the placement of the widget on page but does not affect the size of the text.

You can adjust the size of the font using the text editing toolbar and this will resize your text widget.

Someone on the forum might know of a way to do this using HTML but unfortunately it is a bit out of my scope of knowledge.

If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

Hello Pixelshaw,

I noticed that you used some custom CSS, you did not specify a width, and this can sometimes cause IE to have a paddy. Could you provide a screenshot of what it looks like in IE please.

The screenshot should show us what the issue is. Also, at the end of the CSS you have one too many }. You should remove that, it could potentially break your site.

I hope we can get this sorted!

Hi Andi,

I am trying to add a screen shot here so you can see. Am I able to specify the hight of the div in my custom css to be able to achieve what I want? I will remove the extra } as well. Thanks for noticing,

The slide show and grey text area to the left are what i am trying to match up so they look like one joined item.



Many thanks

Hello pixelshaw

First of all, what a stunning look site you have made! Well done!

Secondly, you can definitely expand the height of your text area. All you need to do is add a height code. I have actually done this for you on your commercial page. But you will need to preview it in your Sitebuilder to see the results. You will need to play around with the height values until you're happy with how it looks.
