Support » Fixing WordPress » Plugin to add style changes to widgets/sidebars

  • Resolved todindiana


    I’ve searched quite a bit for something like this but all topics lead to do-it-yourself hand coding. I am seriously coding deficient and need to depend on something like a plugin that will enable me to define such parameters as a widget’s color scheme, margin/gap between it and neighboring elements, border properties, text title and body attributes, and so on. It’s something that I’d be willing to buy.

    Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. Thank you.

  • @todindiana try including a link to the page you are having problems styling also include information about blocks,and widgets you are using. Your post doesn’t give much to go on.

    @mrtom: I apologize for the lack of information. I thought that posing a short general question would elicit general answers. Let’s see if the following helps:

    I don’t have a specific page, rather I’d like to know how to add such stylistic options mentioned above in general.

    I’m using a child theme of Responsive Pro by Cyberchimps. I generally use the non-Gutenberg WP editor. One or two pages are laid out in blocks using Sidebar and Widget Manager.

    A list of active plugins can be found here.

    A screenshot of active widgets can be viewed here. You’ll need to enlarge it.

    So, my original question still stands: is there a user friendly plugin or similar that will give the user (admin) the ability to add styles to sidebars/widgets? Something that doesn’t require hand coding using css or html.

    Thank you.


    I want to follow up on this question by revealing a couple of solutions. I asked this question to an acquaintance who knows a thing a thing or two about WP.

    She got back to me to suggest that one of my existing plugins could help with widget styling: Extended Widget Options (renamed Widget Options). I feel like a doofus for not seeing that feature – I bought it for other uses.

    She also suggested Yellow Pencil, which has a broader range of style options for just about every element on any page. I have purchased YP and have used it with great results.

    Perhaps my experiences will help others in the future.
