Text widget heading

  1. I've used the <h2></h2> tag to create my text headings, but the titles don't position themselves within the green box like those of the premade widgets (like the calendar, archives, etc). I'm a CSS-n00b, so cut and paste code instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  2. Are you hosted here at wp.com or are you self hosted using the software from wp.org?

  3. I'm hosted at wp.com, and I know I can't into the CSS code. I was hoping there'd be something I could use when I edit the text widget from the widgets page.

  4. Nope, nada. As far as I know for changing the way widget titles are displayed you can change the template you use or buy the CSS upgrade, that's it.

  5. You can put in any title you want, though.

  6. Well that's annoying. It's not a glaring issue, but enough to be annoying.

    Thanks for the help!

  7. I see you're using a < br > and two & nbsp ; s to make the text widgets appear the same as the others. Have you looked at the source HTML though? The other widgets only use an < em > < /em > pair. Try that and it'll display the way you want.

    Quote from the CSS of the Blix theme you use:

    #subcontent h2 em {
    display:block;
    padding:5px 10px;
    font-style:normal;
    }

    See?

  8. Thanks so much! The length of the green boxes still aren't quite right, but at least my text is now centered properly, which is good enough for me.

  9. Hmm, strange.. It looks like a bug in the theme. Unlike other widgets, text widgets are placed inside an extra < div >, for no apparent reason. I'm not sure if you should report it to WordPress.com support or the theme author directly.
