I’m using Twenty Eleven, and yes, I’ve made a child theme.
I’ve given my widget a colored background, so now I need to pad it. The problem is, no matter how much I try to compensate with the width, any teeny tiny amount of padding pushes the whole widget down below the content. I’ve tried debugging this with Firebug. I just can’t understand why I can’t even add 1% of padding if I take 5-10% off the width!
Doesn’t that look like there should be plenty of space? I made it so skinny and it still pushes the widget down as soon as I add some padding. When I take the padding away, it moves back up, and I can make it a lot wider and it’s still fine.
If padding won’t work, how can I slip another div in there to put padding in? (I can’t do it within the Mad Mimi widget, need to do it in the style sheet somewhere)
