    Could you please post how you do this. I began changing all the backgrounds to a cream color and couldn't find an easy way to do it for the sidebar widgets. Everything else about this blog is so simple to alter, but this is a headache.

    It required a bit of coding in the end mate, if you check my other site you'll see I managed it there, http://legacymartialarts.co.uk

    You should be using FirebuFg in order to visualize CSS and changes. On coxie's site, the code used is

    .wdk_sidecolumn-itemcontent {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #F9F9F9;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #D7D7D7;
    border-left: 1px solid #D7D7D7;
    border-right: 1px solid #D7D7D7;
    }

    where the background is #F9F9F9, and so forth.

    In Settings for Suffusions - 3.7.8 (or latest version)
    Back-end Settings - Custom Includes

    Enter your CSS in the Custom Styles box and it won't get overridden with each update.

    Thanks for your reply bobschecter. And props for clearly illustrating what to do.

    I do use Firebug, although it's not exactly as straightforward as a lot of people like to make out - at least not for WordPress themes. And many of us here are not coders by birth - I'm a Graphic Designer - I'm used to seeing the changes I want happen on screen as I make them, in intuitive software like Photoshop and Illustrator. Code is like Kryptonite for folks like me.

    My point really was @coxie - nice that he managed to fix his problem, but a shame he couldn't be bothered to give back to the community he was expecting to help him by sharing his fix.
