Elbee Elgee

    I'm using Elbee-Elgee them and I would like to modify the "Recent Post" sidebar widget with several things but as I'm very new to wordpress i'm wasting tremendous time on this one thing.

    Firstly, i'd like to add spaces between the items. Secondly, bullets in front of the items and last, a border around the box.

    I'd like it to apply just to this widget - not all

    These are all basic CSS changes -- the best way to work with CSS is by learning some basics and using Firebug to help you:

    And yes, it takes time to learn anything new.

    That said, this CSS should get you going in the right direction on those specific changes:

    #primarysb ul li#custom-recent-posts-2 ul li {
       list-style: disc;
       margin-left:15px;
       padding-top: 10px
     }
    
    #primarysb ul li#custom-recent-posts-2 {
       border: solid red 2px;
    }

    Change specifics, like color, according to your preferences.

    Thanks WPyogi, that did the trick... css is not my strong suit but i'm learning slowly. It's mainly figuring out the correct ID's which I need to use. Sometimes you just need it spelled out :)
