Heya,

To adjust the size of the chat bubble on your WordPress site, you’ll typically need to modify the CSS properties that control its width, height, and possibly other aspects like padding or margins. However, the exact CSS selectors and properties to change depend on how your chat bubble is implemented.

Since you’ve already used a custom CSS rule for the z-index, you can similarly add CSS rules to adjust the size. Here are some general steps and tips:

1. Identify the Correct Selector

You’ve identified #proChatIframeContainer as a selector, but the actual size might be controlled by a different element within this container. Use your browser’s developer tools (usually opened by pressing F12 or right-clicking the element and selecting “Inspect”) to find the specific element that needs resizing.

2. Adjust Width and Height

Once you’ve identified the correct element, you can adjust its width and height properties. For example:

#proChatIframeContainer {
    z-index: 999999 !important;
    width: 300px; /* Adjust as needed */
    height: 400px; /* Adjust as needed */
}

3. Consider Responsive Design

Ensure that your adjustments work well on various screen sizes. You might want to use media queries to set different sizes for different screen widths.

@media (max-width: 768px) {
    #proChatIframeContainer {
        width: 200px; /* Smaller size for mobile devices */
        height: 300px;
    }
}

4. Check for Other Styling Properties

Other CSS properties like padding, margin, or border might also affect the overall size and look of the chat bubble. Adjust these as necessary.

5. Update CSS in WordPress

You can add these custom CSS rules in your WordPress theme’s customizer (Appearance → Customize → Additional CSS) or in your child theme’s stylesheet if you’re using one.

6. Clear Caches

After making changes, clear any WordPress or browser caches to ensure your changes are visible.

7. Test Across Browsers

Different browsers can render CSS slightly differently, so test the changes in multiple browsers to ensure consistent appearance.

If these steps don’t directly address your issue, it might be due to the specific implementation of your chat bubble. If it’s a plugin or a third-party service, their documentation or support might provide more precise guidance. Additionally, if the chat bubble is in an iframe and the iframe content comes from another domain, your ability to style it with CSS might be limited due to cross-domain restrictions.
