    How do I add a “line space” so to speak between widgets on my sidebar? They are stacked on on top the other and it doesn’t look good. For example, I have a “search” widget and then directly underneath of it is a “category” widget. But there is no space between them (vertically) so it looks smushed. Thanks.

    It’s really theme-dependent. Each one spaces the widgets differently. You can try inserting empty text widgets between them and see if that looks okay.

    Should be able to do it with the CSS upgrade? Do you have that?

    yeah maybe it’s because i’m a CSS novice – but couldn’t figure it out either. the blank text widgets worked for now… (even with the upgrade – I tried changing padding, margin-top – and couldn’t generate the “top buffer” space I wanted).

    ok I figured out an improvement so that you don’t need the blank text widgets (anyone know a better way to code this?):

    div.sidebar h3 {
    text-align:center;
    position:relative;
    top:5px;
    font-size:1em;
    padding:1em;
    }

    div.sidebar h4 {
    position:relative;
    top:5px;
    font-size:1em;
    }
