This article refers to the Currency Switcher for Easy Digital Downloads. That plugin was retired in 2021 and it's no longer available for purchase. If you're looking for the documentation for the Aelia Currency Switcher for WooCommerce, please refer to the following article:

Altering the aspect of elements via CSS

To alter the look and feel of the Currency Selector widget, simply modify your theme's CSS file and use the following selectors: 

/* Matches the container that wraps around the whole Currency Selector */

/* Matches the widget's title */
.widget_edd_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget .widget-title

/* Matches the dropdown list displayed used to select a currency. */
.widget_edd_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget #aelia_cs_currencies

/* Matches the button that triggers the selection of the currency */
.widget_edd_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget .button.change_currency

/* When the currency selector widget is displayed as a set of buttons, this selector matches all buttons. If you wish, you can select each individual button based on the currency code. For example, .widget_edd_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget .currency_button .EUR will match the buttons for Euro, .widget_edd_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget .currency_button .USD will match the button for USD and so on. */
.widget_edd_aelia_currencyswitcher_widget .currency_button

/* When the currency selector widget is displayed as a set of buttons, this selector matches the button corresponding to the active currency. */

You can use the above to change size, font, colours and any attribute of the Currency Selector, to adapt it to your needs.

Adding custom widget templates

The currency selector widget is rendered using template files that can be found in {your wordpress folder}/wp-content/plugins/edd-aelia-currencyswitcher/views folder. The following standard templates are available:

  • currency-selector-widget-dropdown.php: displays "dropdown" style selector.
  • currency-selector-widget-buttons.php: displays "buttons" style selector.

If you wish to alter the templates, simply copy them in your theme. They should be put in {your theme folder}/edd-aelia-currencyswitcher/ and have the same name of the original files. The Currency Switcher will then load them automatically instead of the default ones.

You can purchase the Currency Switcher from our online shop.
