Facebook Like Box Widget: for when an update?

  1. Hi guys:

    I wonder if it's expectable an update to the Facebook widget.
    It's quite primary as it is. Facebook at least allows for some basic customization on their developers site.

    We need basic thing like setting the color of the borders and background to make the widget fit with our themes.

    ...And it looks like we're stuck with the worst setup, too: asymmetric, with borders of different colors, bugs, a total mess...

    Can we expect an update of this widget so that it allows for the most basic customization?

    Anyone has heard something?

    Cheers, guys!!

    The blog I need help with is blog.tiagodovale.com.

    CSS can only reach things that are served from the same domain as the originating site. That means that you can style anything *before* the Facebook widget gets added (i.e. maybe the outer most border *if* it's outside the embedded widget part and maybe the shape of the container for the widget), but you cannot use CSS to adjust the appearance of stuff inside the Facebook widget because it's embedded using an iframe and Facebook controls that content.

    Here is an example of making the container widgets wider within the scope of your blog which is using the Twenty Eleven theme:

    .widget_facebook_likebox {
    	width: 235px;
    }
