How to style widgets in Alyeska to look like Akita

    Great theme !

    I would like to have my sidebars look the same as in the Akita themes. Any hints on doing this ? The widgets in the sidebars of Alyeska looks a little “poor” for my needs. Could you guide me into the CSS updating that would need to be done ?

    This will be a customization you’ll need to make to the theme. For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    A good idea here would to also do this over on Akita’s live demo so you can see how the widgets are being effected. —

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

    Ok… This does actually does look pretty good for general widget styling in Alyeska.

    .widget {
        background: #ffffff;
    	border: 1px solid #cccccc;
    	-moz-border-radius: 4px; 
    	-webkit-border-radius: 4px; 
    	border-radius: 4px;
    	margin: 0 0 1em 0;
    .widget .widget-inner {
    	padding: 15px;
    .widget .widget-title {
    	background-color: #fbfbfb;
    	background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#fbfbfb), to(#f0f0f0));
    	background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #fbfbfb, #f0f0f0);
    	background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #fbfbfb, #f0f0f0);
    	background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #fbfbfb, #f0f0f0);
    	background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #fbfbfb, #f0f0f0);
    	background-image: linear-gradient(top, #fbfbfb, #f0f0f0);
    	filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(GradientType=0,StartColorStr='#fbfbfb', EndColorStr='#f0f0f0');
    	border-bottom: 1px solid #eaeaea;
    	-moz-border-radius-topleft: 3px;
    	-moz-border-radius-topright: 3px;
    	-webkit-border-top-left-radius: 3px;
    	-webkit-border-top-right-radius: 3px;
    	border-top-left-radius: 3px;
    	border-top-right-radius: 3px;
    	font-size: 16px;
    	margin: -15px;
    	margin-bottom: 1em;
    	padding: 10px;
    	text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 #ffffff;
    .widget .widget-title .header-shade {
        display: none;   

    If you wanted these changes to just apply to the sidebar, you’d append all the selectors with the class “fixed-sidebar” —

    .fixed-sidebar .widget { ... }
    .fixed-sidebar .widget .widget-inner { ... }
    .fixed-sidebar .widget .widget-title { ... }
    .fixed-sidebar .widget .widget-title .header-shade { ... }
