Increasing the vertical height of a summary block in CSS?

Recommended Posts


Ive managed to edit the width of my summary block using:

/*Full Width Latest Updates*/
[data-section-id="617b1af343479318da6e7287"] .content-wrapper {
  max-width: 92%;
  padding-left: 0 !important;
  padding-right: 0 !important;

but I cant edit the height. I need to add some height as ive added a custom 'read more' button to the window as you can see in the screenshot, and currently it clips the button. How can I force the summary block to be vertically larger to ensure elements inside arent clipped?

Im also confused as to how I get my button to hug the left side in line with its post, the code I am using for this is as follows.

Ive tried to play around with values and code as well as changing the alignment, but it always looks broken so I left it centered for now.

/*Hiding default read more in latest updates summary box*/
.sqs-gallery-design-carousel .summary-read-more-link {
  position: relative;
  visibility: hidden;
/*Creates new read more box in latest updates summary box*/
.sqs-gallery-design-carousel .summary-read-more-link::after {
  content: 'Read more';
  background: transparent;
  color: black;
  padding: 20px 30px;
  left: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  transform: translate(-50%);
  visibility: visible;
  font-weight: normal;
  text-transform: capitalize;
  font-size: 14px;
  letter-spacing: 0em;
  margin-top: 50px;
  margin-bottom: 20px;
  border: 2px solid black;

Setting a summary block for grid or list gives you more control over the aspect ratio of  summary items. Wall setting does not. Code of course can overide these settings. I will use grid and make adjustments,  if wall doesn't make the items show up the way I want them to, and I have a lot of summary blocks on my stite:
