    It is possible – every widget is assigned a specific ID by WordPress which you can use in your CSS to customize that particular widget. Firebug will help you drill down to what that ID is.

    I am new to this so…   I am using the balance theme,  I would like to customize the title in the text widget by altering the font and color.  I can alter the font and color of the text in the text box but the not title.  I can not find on the css editor the text widget.  Any help, thanks.

    gatorman,

    To help you we’ll need a link to your site and specific details about which widget title you want to change and which changes to make.

    I got that resolved from help here in another thread.  This is what I did.

    .widget-area h4 {
    color: #ff4040;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin: 0 0 15px;
    padding: 0;
    text-transform: capitalize;
    }

    This forum is so great, especially for a newbie.  I have learned a ton in a short period of time.  I never even knew how to look and find the code for specfic elements on a page.  Now I have seen how to do that and have identified several areas and tweaked them to my taste.  Just great fun.  The site is still a work in progress and the progress moves at the speed of a glacier but…  http://www.belovedesigns.com
