Text Widget with Class

Description

A text widget based on the default WordPress text widget. Allows users to add custom classes to the widget container and the title tag.

It takes this:
<h3 class=”widget-title”>

And allows you to do this:
<h3 class=”widget-title custom-class custom-class-2 etc”>

It also allows users to add custom classes to the widget container.

NEW
If the sidebar registration in your theme’s function file does not contain any HTML for before or after the title of the widget, this now will now fill that with an <h4> tag set.
