TIP: Change Votes Stars Size And Colour

I've looked everywhere for an option in the design studio to be able to set the sizes and colours for the stars for voting but doesn't seem to be an option added, from what I can tell it's using the links colous you've set for the site in general, also found the stars really small.

So here is some css to be able to change the colours and size, I set mine to show as gold while also increasing the font size. The two font-size settings are at the top of the css code and I have used em rather than pixels but you can use pixels if you prefer ie : font-size: 20px!important for example. Note that I have used the same colour for the hover states so not to confuse the member. You can add your own colour by altering the colour setting and you can state a colour or use the hex system as I have done. To state a colour by name you would just write it like this:  color: gold!important;

Here is the CSS code which goes in your design studio custom css

/*** STAR VOTING ***/
/** VOTES STARS SIZE **/
.ratingResultGroup .star, .ratingResultGroup .star.checked, .ratingResultGroup {
font-size: 1.4em!important;
}
/** ADDING VOTE STARS COMMENT FORM **/
.commentForm .rating, .commentRatingGroup .star.checked {
font-size:1.5em!important;
}
.ratingResultGroup .star.checked, .commentRatingGroup .star.checked{
color: #c4ca18!important;
}
.commentForm .rating > input:checked ~ label {
color: #c4ca18!important;
}
.commentForm .rating:not(:checked) > label:hover,
.commentForm .rating:not(:checked) > label:hover ~ label {
color: #c4ca18!important;
}
.commentForm .rating > input:checked + label:hover,
.commentForm .rating > input:checked + label:hover ~ label,
.commentForm .rating > input:checked ~ label:hover,
.commentForm .rating > input:checked ~ label:hover ~ label,
.commentForm .rating > label:hover ~ input:checked ~ label {
color:#c4ca18!important;
}
.commentFormRatingEdit .rating:not(:checked) > label:hover,
.commentFormRatingEdit .rating:not(:checked) > label:hover ~ label {
color:#c4ca18!important;
}
.commentFormRatingEdit .rating > input:checked ~ label {
color:#c4ca18!important;
}
/***** END STAR VOTES ****/
