Customizing widgets in a widgetized sidebar (4 posts)

    Hey guys,

    I've themed and customised my own blog and it's all been successful so far. I've also managed to customise my 'widgets' in the sidebar in 2.3. However, when I widgetized my sidebar for 2.5, I don't see any way to change the content of my widgets like it was possible before (removing lists from Meta being the main issue or removing the title completely)
    So I thought if I could find the code for a certain widget itself I could remove all the li or ul tags or whatever it is (as I see them in the source code of my site). However, I have no idea where to find them.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm having the same issue currently. The blog is up and running but once I added widgets I lost the ability to remove the meta links - any advice?
    Thanks :)

    The meta widget is in wp-includes/widgets.php

    plugging my own plugin again...


    provides a 'widget_content' filter - this means you can hack widgets without hacking the widget code. which means you don't have to do so much work when you upgrade WP and plugins.
