Category Column

The Category Column does simply, what the name says; it will show excerpts of the latest posts in your sidebar.

I styled the widget container myself and it looks bad. What do I do?

The styling of the widget requires some knowledge of css. If you are not familiar with that, try adding

padding: 10px;
margin-bottom: 10px;

to the style section.

My widget should have rounded corners, how do I do that?

Add something like

-webkit-border-top-left-radius: 5px;
-webkit-border-top-right-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius-topleft: 5px;
-moz-border-radius-topright: 5px;
border-top-left-radius: 5px;
border-top-right-radius: 5px;

to the widget style. This is not supported by all browsers yet, but should work in almost all of them.

My widget should have a shadow, how do I do that?

Add something like

-moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
-webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;

to the widget style to get a nice shadow down right of the container. This is not supported by all browsers yet, but should work in almost all of them.
