appologies for starting a new post – there was no "reply" link on your response

Hi Tyler, thanks for your earlier response (about half-hour ago) re widgets losing their formatting when moved to a different position. Yes my site is on localhost, and no, I don’t have a live version of it. I think I get your point about a text widget having a unique identifier and allowing it to retain its formatting regardless of where it is placed, however, MetaSlider doesn’t appear to like working inside a text widget for some reason – I pasted the shortcode into the text box but had no joy with it appearing. My original process was to drop the MetaSlider widget into a widget area, then create a style to remove the 20px padding to allow it to run full size in the widget area. As with all new builds, there is plenty of ‘moving things around’ and I immediately lost my style – a pain in the butt… Any suggestions would be great

    As for the issue, I just installed meta-slider and took a closer look at this. It looks like each slider is given a unique ID, so you can find out what your ID is then do something like this:

    #main #metaslider_112 ul {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    }

    Try that code in your custom sylesheet :slight_smile: if you don’t have a custom stylesheet then use this plugin here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/

    Hope this helps and look forward to hearing back!

    All the best,

    Tyler
