BuddyBoss: Capitalization of Category on Course Page

Updated 2 years ago
by Dave Warfel

By default, BuddyBoss displays the course category above the course title on course pages. It is displayed in all caps (also known as uppercase in CSS). With some simple CSS, we can change the capitalization of the course category.

Here’s the CSS to make it happen:

.bb-course-banner-inner .bb-course-category {
	text-transform: capitalize;

This would change the capitalization to only capitalize the first letter of each word, instead of every letter.

You can use the following values with text-transform:

  • uppercase: EXAMPLE CATEGORY
  • capitalize: Example Category
  • lowercase: example category
  • none: This will display the text exactly as it appears in the HTML. With BuddyBoss course categories, this means it will appear exactly as you typed the category when you created it.

All CSS code should either be placed in a child theme’s main CSS file (typically style.css), or the Additional CSS area of the WordPress Customizer.
