pinterest "follow me" sidebar widget, and changing top menu

    Hi there!

    Two more questions:

    1.) How do I add a link to my pinterest page on my right sidebar? Is this something I can use the css for? I don’t see a widget in my dashboard for this…

    2.) How do I center my menu categories along the top of the page and make the font bigger?

    Thank you for all your help-I’m not very good at this stuff on my own (obviously!)

    Oh, shoot, one more question! (sorry!!!!)

    How do I change the image size to the left of my posts? It always seems to chop my picture up even when I try to make the photo the “right” size. You can see what I mean on my “checking in on the garden: May 2014” post. It cuts off the left side of the post photo. I also haven’t had any luck with the featured images, as those get chopped too =(

    Again, thank you for your help!

    To center the menu, and increase the font size you can use the following custom css:

    .masthead .menu {
    width: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 1.2em;

    For Pinterest – there’s no widget, but you could add an image widget using a pinterest logo/ recent image, and linking it through to your Pinterest account.

    Regarding the images, I’m afraid there’s no way to change them – they are likely to always crop the images. What I would suggest is making the images as square as possible, and trying to keep the main focus of the image in the middle, with the image around the outside that you don’t mind being cropped.

    I’m sorry to take so long to get back to you, but thank you for your help! Worked perfectly, and hopefully I’ll get the image sizes figured out at some point!

    No problem. Glad it worked ok! :)


    Hi, I’ve just activated this overall fabulous theme and added google + and twitter icons (small, grey) to the header. How can I add Pinterest and Instagram? If not available, will it be added in the future? Linking to them via side bar widgets is kind of chunky…

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Andrea – I’m afraid Broadsheet only allows Twitter, Facebook and Google+ links in the header next to the date.

    Also this ticket is in the wrong forum, and is marked as fixed. In the future if you could create a new ticket for your problem then it will be easier for me to keep track of what is fixed and who needs help.
