Sidebar questions: possible to remove theme-loaded images?

  1. I'm using the Comet theme on http://cherrytart.wordpress.com. I'm pleased with it overall, but would like to make a few changes to the sidebar. Are these possible?

    1. Get rid of the theme-loaded sidebar image. (I want to have a white background.)
    2. Add a line between the sidebar and posts to differentiate. Would prefer one solid line
    3. Change bullet style in sidebar to a disc.

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    The blog I need help with is cherrytart.wordpress.com.

  2. 1. Get rid of the theme-loaded sidebar image. (I want to have a white background.)

    I see that you were able to remove the background color for the sidebar in the Comet theme with this CSS:

    .widget {
    	margin:0;
    	padding:20px 10px;
    	background:transparent;
    	border-bottom:2px solid #eaeaea;
    	font-size:.9em;
    }

    Nice work!

  3. 2. Add a line between the sidebar and posts to differentiate. Would prefer one solid line

    I found that you added this to make a border to the left of the sidebar show up:

    .widgets {
    	border-left:2px solid #eaeaea;
    }

    Or if you'd like to move the line a little to the left and make the color and thickness match the lines above the content and sidebar, you could try something like this:

    #c3 {
    	overflow: visible;
    }
    .widgets {
    	margin-left: -6px;
    	border-left: solid 4px #D2D2D2;
    }
  4. 3. Change bullet style in sidebar to a disc.

    Looks like you've got this one covered too. I found this CSS which changed the bullets in the sidebar to a disc:

    .widget ul,.widget ol {
    	list-style:disc;
    	margin:0 10px 0 15px;
    }
  5. Brilliant, design simply. Thank you so much for your reply.

    I did get some of it done, though it took me forever to figure out. *not a code genius*

    I like your sidebar border idea. Will tinker when I have time.

    Appreciate it!

  6. @designsimply, I tried your approach, but my eye preferred what I already had. Thank you, though. The principle might come in handy another time.

    Best,
