How to customize Twitter widget Damien Djaouti | 01-17-2012 | 18:53

Among the numerous functionalities featured on Twitter, one of coolest is the ability to display our own tweets on your blog. A very nice official widget can be used to do this, as we are doing on this blog.

 

However, customization options offered by this widget are quite limited. For example, it is not possible to modify the size of the text used to display tweets. After spending a long time seeking for a solution to this problem, I'd like to share the most efficient one I found: the modification of some CSS classes related to the widget.

 

While the official documentation doesn't tell about it, you can customize the display of the widget by modifying the CSS class ".twtr-tweet-text". For example, if you add this code to your CSS stylesheet, you'll reduce the text size inside the widget:

 

.twtr-tweet-text {
font-size: 0.9em;
}

 

In a similar way, you can hide the huge logotitle with the following style:

 

.twtr-hd {
display: none;
}

 

Last but not least, as you are going to display your own tweets on your own blog, you certainly don't need to display your twitter username before each tweet. The following style will hide the username for you:

 

.twtr-user {
display: none;
}

 

Here is for a few twitter widget customisation tricks. And by-the-way, if someone finds a way to hide the hashtags inside the widget, I'll be very happy to hear the solution...

Welcome to the Ludoscience Blog! Ludoscience | 01-16-2012 | 09:16

In order to celebrate the third birthday of this website, we decided to upgrade it up with some nice features:

 

  • This blog. After nearly three years of being a depot for our research articles and our students projets , this website is now featuring a brand new blog! We will try to use it to provide information relative to the study of videogames, Serious Games and to keep up informed about the life in our laboratory.
  • A new "Our Projects" section. The old one weren't updated since the opening of the website, despite the fact that we had many project in the last three years. The old website section was too complicated to update, so we hope this new section will allow us to present our research project on a more regular basis.
  • Some content upgrade. In the past few weeks, we started to had all the content that were waiting to get uploaded on this website: our last articles, the students projets from this year... We will keep on adding content to this website during the next weeks.

 

We hope you will enjoy this upgraded website, and we hope to see you soon on this blog!
