Widget Background Colors

I've been trying to change the background colors of my sidebar widgets for some time now to no avail. I want to make the widget title transparent, but put a color into the widget content box. I know it's probably a simple fix, but I've tried everything I could to figure it out and I'm stuck. Any help would be fantastic

Thank you!

Your problem may be that Atahualpa's proprietary extra container div.widget-content is gone now for better plugin compatibility. You have these options now

The whole widget is

div.widget {
background: #123456;

To target only the widget content you'd have to use

div.widget ul {
background: #123456;

This should cover the content area of most widgets. If it does not you'd have to look into the browser rendered source code and look what kind of div, form or other element that widget wraps around its content.

You don't need CSS Inserts for that, there are text areas for the various widget sections at "Style Widgets"
