Since my skill with either coding nor CSS is not exactly wonderful, I have taken a particular theme which I have then started to alter to fit the design I had in mind. That, unfortunately, also had some downsides, as I had to find and alter everything in such a way that was usable for me.
Fortunately though, the entire Blog design is ready, apart from one particular problem. I cannot seem to get graphics in the widgets in the sidebar the way I want them to and it is driving me nuts.
The idea is simple; each widget needs to consist of a top, main and bottom (all three with a graphic background), with the main holding the content, the top holding the title and the bottom meant for the finishing touches. The top and bottom have both got a fixed height and width, while the main only has a fixed width. Since I am most probably only going to use the most basic widgets, it is all fairly straightforward stuff.
However, I have only been able to change the title of the widget. The body either does not work, or WP takes the entire bar to the left and gives it a background. I cant get the bottom to even work. I have searched the entire themefiles, but I cannot seem to find the code responsible for generating the widgets. The only thing I can find is a dynamic sidebar in the themefiles, but apparantly that isnt active since it doesnt work (even if you remove all the code there, the blog still works fine).
