Support » Themes and Templates » Increase Padding on “Recent Posts” Widget?

  • Resolved thelobbyist


    Hi everyone, and thanks in advance for the help!

    I have a problem I’m having trouble resolving at: with the Recent Posts widget. I’m running the widget on the right column, and the space between links in the list seems to be too tight and squished together. I’d like to increase the space between these links.
    Can anyone help with that?

    Additionally, is there a way to left justify the title “Recent Posts” so that is is aligned with the “About Us” title in the section above?

    get Firefox and install the developer add-on for Firefox – thet is a great help in identifying the styles of page elements, and you can try changes in the style css ‘in real time’.

    try changing the width in ‘#sidebar-right’ to match the one of ‘#sidebar’, and adding new styles for the list elements:

    #sidebar-right {
            font: 1.3em Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	padding:10px 10px 10px 10px;
    #sidebar-right ul {margin-left:5px;}
    #sidebar-right li {margin-bottom:5px;}

    change the numbers (5px) to get the result you like 😉

    Thanks for the help!

    Can you be more specific about the plug-in? Is it called WordPress Helper?

    that plug-in has nothing to do with wordpress in general, it is just a tool for Firefox to make improving websites easier:
