There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes.

How to override general sidebar CSS style/formatting in sidebar ads?

Hi, I would like to place text-ads in a sidebar text widget - with individual formatting just for this widget. But what happens is, that my text formatting always gets overridden by the default, general sidebar style.

I've tried following formatting:

<style type="text/css">
a.adBody {text-decoration:none;color:black;}
a.adBody:link {text-decoration:none;color:black;}
a.adBody:visited {text-decoration:none;color:black;}

but with no success. Why does it work with Google text ads?
Any idea?

(I've attached an example sceenshot, where the same ad shows up correctly in the post and in the wrong format in the widget.)
Thanks in advance,

different plugins create their widgets differently, with different class names and ID's so it is impossible to code a CSS Selector that will handle all cases.

You need to examine the source of the page to lok at the classes and then construct the CSS you want applied. FireBug in FireFox is a great tool to do this with.
