Can the cursor be changed to either a .png or .cur image with Sydney Pro?


#1

Good day.
I bought a Sydney Pro licence some time ago and I am planning on renewing it, seeing that my site will soon be ready to go live. But I have been trying everything to change the cursor to a particular png or cur image and it is just not working.

Is it a case where one can not change the cursor when on the Sydney theme? Because if that is the case, it makes no sense I renew this licence.
And if this can be done, what is the code to do it, because I need to test it to ensure that it is working before I renew that licence of mine.

Please note: I would like to speak to Kharis Sulistiyono, seeing that he was the one who was most helpful to me during my time at AThemes.

Hello there,

Sydney doesn’t have a feature like so. It can be accomplished with a plugin:

Hey Kharis.
I tried most of these plugins before and tried the methods recommended by the first few results on the SERP.

That’s what led me to wonder if Sydney Pro had some kind of block against this, because nothing I try seems to work.

And I absolutely need this effect, so it makes no sense for me and my team to renew our licences if this can’t be done with the Sydney theme

Hello there,

You can simply use this CSS code solution:

    body {
      cursor: url('https://yoursite.com/path/to/custom-cursor.png'), auto;	
    }

and add it to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS from dashboard.

Hey Kharis.

I tried the code you shared with me and, as expected, it works perfectly.

Do you guys have a review system over by athemes where I could review the work of different employees because your help has always been phenomenal, you always go the extra mile. I’d love to add some five stars to your review list because you deserve it :grinning:
