Customizing a widget
Yes, you can do it with a text widget and no, it has nothing to do with CSS.
Simply add a text widget to your sidebar. Put the title in the title box and the poll code in the main box. Make sure you click on ‘change’ and then ‘Save changes’ at the bottom of the page.
Easy as that.
But won’t the poll then be visible in the sidebar? Whereas I want the title of the only, and it has to be hot, to link to a new page.
Oh. Well, if that’s what you want, just make the pages with the polls on, then take the url and put this code into the text widget:
<a href="URL OF THE POLL PAGE HERE">Title of poll</a>
Wow, that worked! Thank you!
By the way, I looked at your site and it’s very nice. I don’t mean in terms of looks–not that it’s bad looking–but in ideas. I liked your insight regarding the department of poverty-eradication’s attitude toward teen pregnancy as one of, you’re messing up our statistics!(Not your words, but your idea–I’d go look the exact words but I’m deep into doing the second page of the above work before I forget how!)
Oh, Rosclarke, Do you know the code to make there be a hard space between the two titles I formatted as you wrote above? It’s writing them in a continuous fashion, and I want a break at the end of each title so that they’ll appear as a list.
The code is
(Hit return too soon) Alternatively, you can use a list
<ul> <li> link to first item </li> <li> link to second item</li> . . . <li> link to last item</li> </ul>
Wow, the break thing worked too!
Wish you two were running for office. Or fixing the banks.
Thank you very much.
