Styling the Author widget

Widgets often fall victim to a theme's stylesheet, meaning that the theme often ignores applying any type of styling to plugins that the original theme designer didn't intend on being used. Author Spotlight is no exception.

If you're an advanced user who's comfortable with CSS, here are the classes and IDs needed to restyle the default Author widget:

#post_author_profile {

font-size: 12px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial; margin:5px; padding:7px; background-color:#fff; border:solid 1px #ccc;

#post_author_profile h2 {

margin:0px 0; padding:0; font-size:9px; text-transform: uppercase;

#post_author_profile h4 {

font-size:2 0px; padding:0px; margin:3px 0;

#post_author_profile img.avatar {

padding:5px; background-color:#fff; margin:5px 0px; border:solid 1px #ccc;

#post_author_profile #author_profile {

font-size:12px; line-height:14px; color:#666; margin:5px 0 5px;

#post_author_profile a { font-size:12px;

#post_author_profile > b { display:none;
