Colorsidea 2.1 in WP 2.5 (5 posts)

    I'm using this theme.

    It is pre-2.5 and when I add a widget to the side bar it removes all of the sidebar topic's title formatting.

    The theme has great graphics for the titles of the sidebar material but if I change the widgets at all the formatting goes away and there is only a title in plain text.

    I am too much of a newbie to know what is happening. I am guessing it is a problem with compatibility with 2.5 because as I understand it the way WP handles widgets has changed. I have not used WP before 2.5 so I don't know any different.

    Thanks in advance for helping me out.

    The way widgets are handled has changed but not the way they display. You should probably post a link to your blog.

    Okay, after digging a little more I think the answer lies here

    But I still don't know how to make the formatting appear in the widgets. I realize that this must be kindergarten WP stuff. But perhaps someone could point me in the right direction.

    I am assuming I need to set the CSS to make widget headings appear like they do in the hard-coded default page. But how?

    Also, since I am being a noob and bothering you all anyway let me ask two more dumb noob questions that are surely answered in the Codex somewhere.

    1) What do I need to do to make a specific graphic (that I have that did not come with ColorsIdea 2.1) show up?

    2)Also, is there a way to have a different background image appear on each page?

    Thank you WP gurus :)

    How widget intense do you need your sidebar to be?

    After trying to go about it the way you are, I discovered it was MUCH easier to just remove all the widgets and "hard code" the sidebar, instead. But then I only need some text, tags, categories, and links in my sidebar.
