Style Your View Counter

We have now been given a view counter which is great. Just thought I would share a way to be able to add some styles to them if you want them to stand out a bit.

Here is an example using the code below: https://jr-images.ning.com/codes-archive

As the view counter shares the comments count class we need to add a new class to the views so add this code to your social site builder > custom code > end of page section.

<script>
x$(document).ready(function() {
x$('.entry-commentsCount:contains("Views")').closest('.entry-commentsCount').addClass('memberViews');
});
</script>

Now we can target the view counter with css using the new class we added :  memberViews

The css goes in your design studio custom css

To change the font size for the word Views and the count number we can add this

.memberViews{ font-size:16px }

If you just want to make the count size bigger you can use this

.memberViews a{ font-size:16px}

I added a background colour and also a hover change with a little extra padding on my number count by using this

.memberViews a{ background-color:lightgrey; padding:0px 10px 0px 10px; border-radius:5px }
.memberViews a:hover{ background-color: royalblue; color:white; text-decoration:none }

As you can see now you have a class for the views you can do as you with using some css styling.

Now as an extra tip if you wanted it to look different on particular forums, blogs etc you can use multiple styling by just adding the forum page name before the code. So you could use some default styling for your views using the example above and then use some more styling for a specific forum for example.

So let suppose I have a forum called:  ideas

The css class for that forum would be called   .page-ideas

So the extra code to just style the views for that forum would look like this

.page-ideas .memberViews{ font-size:16px }
.page-ideas .memberViews a{ background-color:lightgrey; padding:0px 10px 0px 10px; border-radius:5px }
.page-ideas .memberViews a:hover{ background-color: royalblue; color:white; text-decoration:none }

As you can see it's pretty easy to target different forums etc by just adding it's name before the code.
