I've worked a lot in atahualpa, this week doing a design with 3.4 & Wordpress 2.8.6 - in the past, if I wanted to style text in the sidebars specifically, I'd do something like this with the "text" widget:
<p class="contact">Contact us Today! We're Open Seven Days a Week!</p>
Then I'd add an insert:
/* contact us */
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
I'm using a fresh unzip of the theme and a new install of wordpress - none of my css inserts seem to be "taking" in the sidebars; on my left column I ended up putting the styling in the ata options/sidebars styling section - I can't globally style the right side like that, too much other stuff going there - anything changed with ATA lately that affects this?
The URL is http://bridgestexas.com/wordpress
- for now this is just an experiment to see how closely I can match the look of an HTML site with WP, not much actual content there.
Thanks all - MC
