FAQ

Will this work on every theme?

Yes and no. This plugin will work modifying the containers, but themes like ‘TwentyTen’ use unordered lists ul to surround the widget areas and this will fail w3 validation since <ul> cannont contain elements other than <li>.

How do you fix the twentyten theme to work with this?

You can edit the sidebar.php file in the theme editor and remove <ul class="xoxo"> and </ul> for both the primary and secondary widget areas. Leave the <div>s and you should now validate.
