    Hi, I'd like to bold the first word of my widget titles.

    How do I do this?

    Here's a link if it helps: http://www.payitforwardfriends.com

    Got it!
    Used this widget: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/linkable-title-html-and-php-widget/installation/

    Still unclear on how to do it though for non-text widgets. Help?

    Not sure if you still need this, but I was looking to do the same thing, and found this: http://www.brinzan.com/2012/01/wordpress-add_filter-for-widget-titles/

    The span tags were stripped out of the post, and then again in my comment on the post. This is what should actually go in functions.php:

    /************* FIRST WORD BOLD IN WIDGET TITLE *****************/
    add_filter ('widget_title', 'wpzoom_fix_widgets');
    function wpzoom_fix_widgets($old_title) {
        $title = explode(" ", $old_title,2);
        $titleNew = "<span>$title[0]</span> $title[1]";
        return $titleNew;

    'Course the span tags could easily be strong or em tags instead, whichever suits your purposes best.

    Hope this helps :-)
