Sidebar Widget before_title help (1 post)

    I am new to WordPress, but familiar with the coding behind web design. I have found in the functions.php file where it has the "before widget", "before title", "after title", "after widget". I removed the values for before and after widget. Then I replaced the values for before and after title like so:

    'before_widget' => '',
    'after_widget' => '',
    'before_title' => '<h2><div id="sidebar-titles">',
    'after_title' => '</div></h2>',

    Then in my actual plugins/widgets you have the default code like so:
    echo $before_widget . $before_title . $title . $after_title;

    THE PROBLEM:
    Editing the functions.php file as mentioned above takes care of the widgets that came standard with WordPress. Any widget I have downloaded or made myself comes out wrong. I am needing the title of the sidebar widget like so:
    <h2><div id="sidebar-titles">Affiliates</div></h2>

    I am guessing there is somewhere else that declares the default values for $before_title and $after_title for my custom made widgests? They grab using extract($args); I am guessing, I am not too sure on what else the function does.
    BTW I am using the default theme that comes with the newest wordpress theme, only I have customized it totally :D
