How to make some comestic change on the Recent Post widget?

  1. Once you activate the Recent Posts widget on a WP blog, it will show the recent post on the sidebar and list out the post sorted by date. What I want to know is how can I add a pic/icon just right to the caption, 'Recent Posts'. Can I use a div to overlap the pic to the widget? How to do that? Any idea/suggestion?

  2. My dirst suggestion is that you provide the complete and clickable URL for the blog in question starting with http:// Once you have done that then we can begin to provide help.

    Do note that if you are referring to a free blog from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM there is no easy or "free" way to do what you are asking.

    If you have CSS editing experience, you can get the paid custom CSS upgrade and renew it annually. It will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but it does not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. Also note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes here at wordpress.COM.

    Since there is no official Staff support for the CSS upgrade, and precious little Volunteer support, I recommend that you don’t buy the upgrade unless you have at least moderate understanding of HTML and CSS because you must be prepared to do the work on your own.

    If you are considering purchasing the upgrade, you can go to Appearance > Edit CSS. There wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try before you buy.
