How to expand this element

This discussion is related to the Apptastic addon.

I want to expand the "Discussion" column to make the display better. I tried this on custom.css

td .BigCount { width: 94px; }

but it is not working. anything wrong with my modification?


  • u mean this part?

    .DataList .ItemContent {


  • sorry for the late reply, been busy lately and imgur is now blocked by my ISP ( finally got a workaround )

    not that element, I want to expand the box container of the Discussion count header.
    the "s" from Discussions looks out of place. If the box were wider, it would be better

    Welcome back. Looks like you're referring to the Discussions column of the table layout of the categories page.

    Here are a couple ways to make that column wider. You only need to add one of these CSS rules to the theme's custom.css file.

    .BigCount.CountDiscussions {
        width: 94px;


    .BigCount.CountDiscussions > .Wrap {
        word-wrap: normal;
