    I would like to know if its possible to customize the title in the text box widget.  I can change the text in the box like I want it but I can not see how to modify the title as far as font or color.  Thanks,

    Can you please provide a link to your site so we can look at the code to tell you what you need to change! Makes it a little easier ;)

    Thanks Susan,

    The site is http://www.belovedesigns.com and where I am talking about is the text box top of right sidebar.   I can figure out how to change the text in the box but can’t see how to change the title of the box.  Just getting started on the site.

    To modify the color of the text in the box, look for this in your stylesheet:

    .home-featured-right,
    .home-featured-right p,
    .home-featured-right h4.widgettitle {
    color: #be1829;
    text-shadow: #a64242 -1px -1px;
    text-align: center;
    }

     

    There are two colors in there – the text color, and the text-shadow color; you’ll need to change both of them to change the color of the text.

    For the text box – are you using the Genesis e-news widget? If so, there is a title section there where you should be able to just change the title of the widget. If you’re using a different widget, can you let me know, and I will investigate further.

    Thanks Susan but I realize I should have made myself more clear.  The title I am talking about is at the top of the sidebar and it is now gray and it says ‘Meet The Characters’.  I changed the font and color of the text in the box but can’t see how to chance the title.  I am using the Balance theme with Genesis and the text widget simply says ‘text’.   When I look in the editor I can’t find it so I am not sure where to look.  Thanks,

    My bad – I was looking at your Header right widget, and not your sidebar…

    Ok, to change the font and color of the title of the sidebar widget, find this in your stylesheet:
    .widget-area h4 {
    color: #888;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin: 0 0 15px;
    padding: 0;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    }

     

    replace the color and font as needed.

     

    I wasn’t sure if you were asking how to change the words “Meet the Characters”, too (or just the font and color)? If you want to do that, you would do it under Genesis > Appearance > Widgets > Primary Sidebar > Text (change title)
