New header options

Today we would like to introduce 3 new options that will help you adjust the widget header look:

  • Profile photo size
  • Font size
  • Font color

Profile photo size in the widget header

We received a few support tickets with questions about how to change the profile photo size in the widget header. Previously it required a short CSS snipped entered in the Custom CSS field. From now on you can adjust the size of the profile photo using the new option – Profile photo size in the Header section of the widget creator. This feature is available in all of the widgets – both free and upgraded. Please keep in mind that in order to show your profile photo in the widget header, your Instagram account must be connected via the Business connection.

The profile photo can be now smaller or larger, depending on your decision. Please note that the size can be adjusted automatically in the case of devices with smaller screens. The profile photo might be shrunk to fit the smaller viewport.

Header font size

Another option is the possibility to set the custom font size for header texts. Before adding this option the size of the texts was controlled over the caption sizes. Some users requested to have separate controls over the size of the captions and header texts like username, number of followers, etc.

From now on you can adjust the size of the text in the header by using the Header font size in the Header section of the widget creator. Again, this feature is available for your free and upgraded widgets:)

Header text color

This functionality was not directly requested, but we decided to add it based on the header font size request. Normally the text color in the widget header was controlled over the captions text color. In case if you will need to set a separate color for your captions and a different color for your header items, you can do it by using the Header text color in the Colors section.

You can use this option in your free and upgraded widgets.

We want to thank all our users for the entire year 2021🙏. Thank you for all the positive messages and tons of ideas for the development of our widgets. Thank you for being with us💛. We wish you all the best for the upcoming holidays and the new year.

The three new options described in this article are the last of the new features coming this year. We’re looking forward to 2022! Get ready for even better widgets with a bunch of new options!

      Hi! We are very sorry but unfortunately, we have not been able to squeeze in the overlay option this year:( Some features took longer than expected in July. The good news is that we should start working on the overlay next month so it should be available soon!
