Hello,

This is probably a very basic question, but I'm still working my way around WordPress and Atahualpa, so please help.

I have added the Twitter for Wordpress plugin (http://rick.jinlabs.com/code/twitter), which shows up my recent tweets in the left sidebar (see http://www.rainmichael.com/ - my site is in Spanish, but the widget area will be very easy to spot).

The plugin works beautifully, but somehow the basic styling I have set up for all the plugins looks bad for this specific one. I would like the font size to be smaller, maybe add a frame around it, etc., as I've seen that other websites do.

Is there a way to change the styling of one single plugin?

Thanks for your help,
Elenis/Rain Michael

Yes you can change the styling of a single widget. You will need to code up a CSS Selector and the CSS rules (styles) to apply and put them in ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts

To create the CSS selector you will need to view the page, then look at the source of the page (the HTML) to see what you can use to create the selector.

There are seversl references for CSS on the web, I use http://www.w3schools.com/css/ all the time.
