    Again, this is storyfall.nl/interreg (Pw: voxxamsterdam) calling in.

    Character vignettes are supposed to be sleek little pics inserted in the left or right margins, right? At least that was what I was used to in Genji. And Novella. Suddenly in Kerouac, mine are huge. Unwieldy. Can this be amended?

    Or is this native to Kerouac? If so, I must make a point about certain expectations that we users have from one theme to the next. You know, working with Aesop, you get to have an implicit understanding of what certain components mean and do. If that suddenly changes with a new theme, it’s upsetting.

    Now, how can I change these character sizes?
    Kindly,
    Boris

    Hey Boris,
    Each component will look different in each theme. Each theme designer is responsible for designing the components. The functionality will remain the same, but the themes will display theme differently. This is what makes Aesop Story Engine so powerful, is that theme designers can do anything they want with them. You can of course customize this with some CSS.

    Boris,

    Also, to add to what Nick said about customizing the theme’s design of each Aesop Component, I recommend using a plugin like Simple Custom CSS to customize your CSS (https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/).

    Within Chrome, or other browsers, you can use the CSS inspector, which is super easy to use and will make finding the CSS classes that you’ll need to target when you want to change the design. Here’s a great in-depth article about this: https://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/developertools/part1

    Let me know how you go about with this.

    Well, CSS tweaking is something I’m really not into at all, really. Right now I’ve asked another WP wizard to do that stuff for me, because it’s really where my knowledge of WP ends and I’m not inclined to dive in. Too much writing (my core business) to do. Aesop really is a cool product in that it helps writers like me to do stuff myself that would otherwise require coding and wizardry, so conversely that’s exactly how it is: if Aesop can0t do it natively, I stop trying. 🙂

    We’re glad you like Aesop and look forward to hearing how you go about using Aesop more in your writing. Keep in touch as you get things tweaked and push your site to the public as we would love to share what you have been creating.
