[SOLVED] Widget titles will not format

I added a new widget plugin to the site and then was attempting to format the links underneath it. Well, I royally fubarred something b/c now, even with the plugin deleted, my widget titles won't format using the ATO.

Something is obviously affecting them b/c they are uppercase and have a color applied, but hell if I know where it is! I have searched using Firebug and I see my styles which should be applying, but they aren't...

I think it might be related to the fact that they are links, which they shouldn't be. "In The Spotlight" is just a text widget with a title.... there's not reason for it to be showing up as a link.

Anyway - Here is the style i'm attempting to use within ATO > Style Widgets > Widget Title:

HTML Code:
font-size: 18px; 
font-family:"PT Sans Narrow",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
color:#E31836;
text-transform:uppercase;
font-weight:bold;
I'm at a total loss. Any help would be great appreciated. Thanks!

the option ato->Style WIDGETS->Widget Title will style the content of the 'title' box of a widget. For example, if you include a text widget it has two parts: The Title and the Text. If you add html with a title in teh text section, the option will not apply. If you add some text to the 'title' box, the stylng will apply.

in your case, the 'Join the confersation' is part of the 'test' area of the text widget, not the title area of the text widget. You will have to style that text manually

How are "Join the Conversation" and "Like Us on Facebook" not widget titles? They are both in the widget title field.

See attached.


I am extremely familiar with the ATO > style Widgets area and I filled out the all the widget styles as I normally do. I am sure the styles would work if the widget titles weren't links. I have no idea why they are being turned into links.

If you'll notice, the newly added "Latest Tweets" widget title is formatted correctly b/c it isn't a link...

See attached.

I would double check the code in the other widgets for missing or extra characters.

Are you using the standard WP text widget? because your titles are showing up as links and there is other widget css for links that is overriding the widget title CSS.

I took another look at your site and you hav a error in your html in the first widget which is spilling over to the other widgets. take a look and see if you can find the issue.

Wow. So yeah... I can't believe the following:

A: I never thought to look in that widget. (FYI: I forgot to close the anchor tag.)
B: I spent all day trying to figure it out.
C: I do this for a living.

Thanks for the help, guys. *facepalm*
