My website is under construction, so I don't have a link to share with you. This seems to be a common problem and not very straight forward to resolve.
I'm using a Woo theme. I was able to edit my default-widgets.php file easily enough to change the text in the Archives DropDown box, and also to add a class. Adding a class was the only thing I could figure out that would help customize the CSS. It works when changing the font, but nothing else responds.
I want to add some padding around the text inside the box. I also want to remove what appears to be a border image and background (soft gray with shadows). This widget is WordPress's widget; not Woo's. How do I do this? And I would like to center the box. It responds to margin-left: 25px ... but when I set the margin to auto all the way around, it doesn't center the box.
I would be so grateful some guidance on this. Thank you!!
