    Please take a look at . There you will see that I am using Psimple 1.0 theme. I have activated the COMMENTS widget which displays find in the body. However in the sidebar the comment listings are lacking a hard return after each one. I don’t know how to change that. Is it in the COMMENTS template or somewhere else. Thanks!

    The widgets have nothing to do with the “body”. They govern only what is in the sidebar(s).

    In your case the widget comes with some style declaration that says “display:inline” and that is causing the lack of line break.
    Since we don’t know what widget are you talking about (usually, there are tons of them) – it is difficult to advise…



    Hi Moshu,
    I am using Psimple 1.0 theme. In the list of avaiable widgets in that theme is one called RECENT COMMENTS. I don’t know how to identify the widget any further than that.

    Are there other widgets out there that will read the Comments data and properly display a list of comments in the sidebar as used in the Psimple 1.0 theme?



    The widgets are separate from themes. Only bad designers bind them together. Normal widgets should work in any widgetized theme.

    If you did not install any special widgets, in that case you have the built-in “recent comments” widgets. It’s style seems to be in conflict with the theme’s stylesheet,
    Open the style.css of the theme and find this line:
    #outer ul li {display: inline; padding: 0px;margin: 0px;font-size:12px;color:#fff;}

    Remove/delete the “display: inline;” part and see if it works.



    That did the trick. Thank you very much.

    I am trying to do something fairly similar, but I am wanting to increase the space between the lines on the comments, and possibly add a bullet to make it stand out more, but so far the only way I’ve been able to do that is to add a bullet in the “#l_sidebar ul li” class, which adds a bullet to everything.

    Is there anyway to add a bullet to only the lower levels of the list?

    The website where I am trying this is

    The recent comments are at the bottom of the left sidebar.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
