Ticket #13438 - Menu widget edit

Hi, is it possible to change the menu widget for Categories in Parent to not show the Parent item?
On my website testps.thestitchersmuse.com - under menu item Shop - mega menu show image, then Category Widget - shows Books & Patterns, and then shows Books & Patterns again - first one is the widget title (which I like the design of), the second is the Parent Category - which I would rather not show - and just show Patterns by Designer, Books, and Patterns by Technique.

This ticket does not depend on any other tickets.

Also wondering - to set the page so there is some room around it (white space) - is that set under the page width (default setting 1830)? or is there another place I can set so there is some empty space around the page - possibly with a background image? For CMS page the text is set right next to the edge of the screen (About page) - makes it hard to read.

Try following CSS to hide parent category:

.widget-subcategories ul > li:first-child {display:none}

Could you please add some screenshots, because I can't understand where exactly the issue with spaces

Screenshots attached - About Us cms page goes right to the edge of the screen. I'd also like more room on other pages so page is not side-to-side and images are not quite so large(screenshots are taken on my laptop).

sorry - where is the css file for changing the widget?
Tried the themes>alysum>assets>css>theme.css & added it at the end but it didn't seem to make a difference. Not important, though - so no rush.

Newsletter signup form in the footer - where does that go? I use Mailerlite, which does not currently have a Prestashop integration. How can I add the link for signing up? Add html code instead of the default email signup? I should add that I have several different lists for different activities/interests so would like to send the customer to the email landing page in Mailerlite.
Thanks so much for all your help from an almost-luddite...

Contact information in the footer - where do I find the icon list to customize this area?

Hi, Dione.
You can find the Lin in our documentation http://alysum5.promokit.eu/promokit/documentation/#svg

There is a newsletter signup form in the footer by default - I would like to configure it to automatically go to my Mailerlite landing page - how can I do that?
Also would like to scale down the font in the Contact widget which I've installed beside my logo in the header.
Thanks for all your help.

Where is you Mailerlite landing page?
to find what class to edit in your contact widget you have to use Chrome Developer Tools. see the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcFnnxfA70g

Back to the question about space around the page - cms pages, checkout page, etc. go right to the edge of the screen on both my laptop and my old desktop (old, square monitor). Makes it hard to read and does not look well-designed. On my laptop it looks much better if I reduce the zoom on the screen to 75% or 67% - I'll attach a screenshot as soon as I get back to my laptop, but I'd like it to look like that by default and have the font size the same as without the zoom-out - screenshots 32 & 33 above show the current configuration.

So, you want to go to that landing page by click to the button "Subscribe"?
As for page view, you can adjust the width as you like in the Theme Settings → General → Page Width

Dione (CrystalPhoenix) 04 Jan 2019, 00:25

Newsletter subscription - yes, I would like the button to go to the landing page.
I've tried changing the page width but it doesn't seem to make much difference - when it does, the text and logo in the header are the same size and overwrite each other. Is there a way to reduce the font size for the Contact widget I have in the centre? I can reduce the size of the logo in a third-party program.

Hi. I can help you with the modifications for a small price. It will cost about 10-20 euro.
If it's ok for you just write me back and I will help you.
What the info I need:
1) Subscribe button.
Do you mean this block? https://c2n.me/3YZlyYa

Hide field email and just leave button?


I've tried changing the page width

CMS page. It seems fine for me https://c2n.me/3YZlC6o
How do you want to see it? Show me please with the screenshot.


Is there a way to reduce the font size for the Contact widget I have in the centre? 

In the header?

.block-contactinfo .nav-item {font-size: 12px}

and if you need to reduce the margin between contact lines https://c2n.me/3YZm332
change to this

.block-contactinfo .nav-item {
  font-size: 12px;
  margin-bottom: 0;

Hi Alex,
Answered in the order they appear above:
Email subscription box - yes that is the one I was referring to. I will consider hiring you for the modification - but will first contact my email list support to see if I can do it myself - mainly because if I need to change it in the future I will then know how.
The page width is working for me at the moment. I will survey my customers to see if they like the page as-is or if they'd like it to be narrower - now I know where to change that. It seems fine on android and will test on a tablet later today.
Changing the contact widget - brings up a general question - where do I change the css - IE, which module? Or is it better practice to add the new css in a separate file, so that the changes will continue through upgrades/updates to the theme and to PS? I think I added some previous css to the main css file, but I'm now rethinking that since it would be overwritten with an update - correct? I think I saw a place where custom css or custom js or custom html could be added?
Thank you for your help and support on these questions.

Hi. Sorry for waiting. I was very busy these days.

Email subscription box

How do you want to see this block?
Just button SUBSCRIBE and redirect to your mail landing page or leave it by default and just send customers email to the landing page?

where do I change the css - IE, which module?

You can add the css in the BO > Theme Settings > CustomCSS ;) This file won't be overwriten since update :) Anyway. Always do backups before any update Ps or theme
